Ford Parts ( should i start a shop )

Need some help from you lot as to weather you think the Mornington Peninsular in Victoria needs a wreckers just for XK through to current model falcons that will stock all the parts and panels that we need to build our cars, including Cleveland and Windsor parts and advice maybe later on a machine shop to, I've got plenty of parts and heaps of knowledge about these motors and how to get good power out of them, I am a auto machinest by trade.
I would like to hear any comments you all might have

Thanx

Re: Ford Parts ( should i start a shop )

Thanx crochunter, i really think i will open a shop it will be located around Frankston/Cranbourne area, as for strokers i have a heap of combos and can machine them all, i'll have the profile of mine up here soon but in short it is a 414 hybrid boss in a XB coupe puts out about 570 hp and touque is up around 620-630.
will get some cam specs on here for you soon but you need to tell me what your using it for and the rev range you want to work in.
Catch you later.

I want rev ranget to be no more than 7000. I will be using it mainly for drags and the occasional weekend cruise. i would like 600 hp if that is possible.

Re: Ford Parts ( should i start a shop )

A wreckers around the south east here in melb would be a good idea, at the moment there is probably only 2 or 3 wreckers around here that have a good supply of xr-xy parts let alone xk-xp.... as far as xw-xy parts go i probably also have enough to start a business.... as far as location goes... cranbourne would probably be a better location than frankston as its more central to country areas also.... as far as i know theres only 1 early falcon wrecker along the princess hiway between Dandenong and trafalgar..not counting wreckers in dandenong. (Trafford in trafalgar) and out towards frankston way, there is harveys in baxter which do very little if any early ford stuff nowadays. And a couple of smaller wreckers that havent been much use when i was chasing parts... Apart from that there is very little availability (locally)...

Re: Ford Parts ( should i start a shop )

A mate and I are looking at wrecking out XA/B's solely so we can fund some more things for ourselves. We're also looking at funding some other projects If all goes well I'll either wreck out my XB or sell it with a mild engine. I'm looking at building/buying a hotrod and powering it with my driveline

Re: Ford Parts ( should i start a shop )

There's plenty of demand for XA/B. Especially if you wreck the right car. I've wrecked one XB (my prior beige one and a few bits I didn't need from the now green one). Purchase price $2300 what have I put back into my pocket $ wise. I'm not far off $4000. I've done mates rates on a few of the parts too. Most of it sold quickly and I kept ahold of a few things. I thought I may have had a use for them. In the end I didn't so they're being sold off.

Finding a car with performance parts on it is where the $ are. I've purposely kept the engine for myself.

Second car,XC 302 clevo, 2 month old auto , 9" that he said made a noise going around corners, ( was just a bearing but i didnt tell him that ) so it came with another 9" , 4 spare doors, a boot lid, and a bonnet, GS dash and cluster, globe mags with 80% tyres on them, 1000 bucks.
