The XR6 gets a friend... maybe?

Well, it seems dad brought home a nice EBII Fairmont V8.

- AUTO
- 1993 model (160,00km's!!!)
- 16" ROH alloys
- Bodykit
- Pioneer stereo system
- 2.5" exhaust system
- 351? dad reckons its a 351 clevo, not a 302 windsor. but i have my doubts. The manifold bits come out 1 inch, then go straight back towards the firewall. Very tight squeeze..

Well, here's some pics i took with my digi cam. It's in awesome nick for a 93..

Whatcha reckon guys? should we buy it? what's a good price you reckon?

Cheers,
Yagz

The only way its going to be a 351 is if some one has put it in there. The only E-series car ever to have a factory 351c was the EA GT concept. And that never made it into production.

All the XR8's excluding the BA's are 302 windsor's.
With the BA's being Boss 5.4L

Re: The XR6 gets a friend... maybe?

Looks tops Chris - I'm guessing this is a possible replacement for the Fairlane? I guess $7-9k would be the expected asking price.

A Clevo in an EB would probably be unable to be registered.

Keep us posted.

Re: The XR6 gets a friend... maybe?

I highly doubt it being a 351 Cleveland.... but I could be all the same!

But looks like a nice car all the same! Hope it serves you well!

Re: The XR6 gets a friend... maybe?

The description of the manifolds sounds way different to stock so maybe it is? Bring her to a meet Yagz, looks like you already been cruising in her from the P's on the window Almost like mine, Im just trying to work out what the ghia got over the Fairmont. At the moment I can only think of colourcoded side mouldings and maybe sports dash? Least she's an EB 2 with the nicer interior and everything else. Well Done.

PS go the everglades!
