cool BA SR Build Photos!!

Hi all

This is my first attempt at attachements, so I hope they come out.
I pick up my new SR falcon tonight, and have got the photos of the build process.

So here goes. Please read below for email description of photos.

On behalf of Ford Australia the Body Shop Team would like to present you with a picture of your BA FALCON SEDAN entering the Main Framing line.
In the Main Framing area the sides and body shell of your vehicle are carefully put together by the experts at the Ford plant. Included in this process are the arrays of robots shown in this picture that are responsible for welding your BA FALCON SEDAN sides to the underbody.

Continuing through the Body Shop your vehicle starts to take shape as the roof, bonnet and doors are carefully assembled to complete the body of your BA FALCON SEDAN.

The Trim team is proud to present you with a picture of your BA FALCON SEDAN passing along the Trim line. At the Trim stage, the interior of your BA FALCON SEDAN is crafted together. This picture shows your vehicle just after the instrument cluster was installed. The wiring looms, radio, windscreen and doors are also added at this stage. The Ford assemblers check the entire interior and your vehicle then passes onto the overhead clam where the engine, fuel tank, axles and underbody components are fitted.

This photo shows your BA FALCON SEDAN at the end of the Ford production line. Here your BA FALCON SEDAN goes through a number of tests and quality inspections, this process usually takes a couple of days. Following final quality inspection vehicles are marshalled and shipped from the plant. FPV and select XR vehicles are shipped to Ford Performance Vehicles where further work is performed.

The Overhead Clam team is proud to present you with a picture of your BA FALCON SEDAN having its engine fitted. This picture shows Ford's state of the art 'clam shell' supporting your vehicle while your 4.0L DOHC VCT I6 is lifted into the engine bay. Your BA FALCON SEDAN also has it's fuel tank, axles and all other components fitted to complete the vehicle.

Re: BA SR Build Photos!!

You should write back and ask why they put the TQE in instead of the V8 LOL

Re: BA SR Build Photos!!

well, I picked it up on friday arvo.
What a magnificent piece of technology this car is.

I love it!!!!

The only dissapointing thing was the number of kays on it when I picked it up 122!! I asked about the high number and was told that it was due to ford random testing of vehicles.

I havent racked too many kays on it yet, just been taking it very easy.
Its a beautiful machine, I will endeavour to get pics for you all asap!!

Unless it came with a sticker on the glass stating this I would query the high delivery kays, maybe the dealer took it off but by leaving it there it would explain such a high number and absolve them of anything fishy. Also did they have to drive it anywhere for accessory fitments as well?
