$30,000 will get any BA modified into a coupe. See the Hillier brothers.

As for a factory one? I'll take a punt and say NEVER EVER AGAIN!

Why never again?

Also, $30,000 on top of at the least, $25,000, is WAY too much for me haha

And to be honest, the Hillier conversion looks like crap.

Fastback or nothing I say.

But then Also, $30,000 on top of at the least, $25,000, is WAY too much for me haha
So if Ford were to make one, do you think it would be less than $65,000.
me thinks not.

It will never happen. Tom Gorman has already knocked it on the head and the slow sales of the Monaro put the nails in the coffin. Coupes are only good for one or two years and then no one wants them. The XA, XB and XC coupes were a prime example. Started off well and got worse until they made them into Cobras to get rid of them.

I want an XB/C coupe, and it's 30 years after they were made

Oh well, I guess it makes sense from a business view.

its simply not worth ford producing one, they will not make any money on it and will more then likely loose alot of mony if they did. the only reason holden bought out the monaro is that they knew they would export it to the states, otherwise they would not have produced it.
Australia is simply too smaller market and with so many car manufactureres these days it will never be done
