Well as some of you may or may not know, over the past 2 years my dad and i have been rebuilding an XW Fairmont GS, with the intent of turning it into a GT replica for the purpose of entering Classic Adelaide. Late last year the car was finally finished, and we are now in the process of running the engine in by having some casual cruises in and around adelaide.
We bought the car as an unfinished project approx 2 years ago as a painted shell with a rebuilt engine and all the parts ready for re-assembly. Here is the final product (see pics below). The car is as follows.
1969 XW Fairmont GS.
I was V8 4sp ex factory but now has
351 c (D block)
2V heads with 4V valves, and mild clean up of ports.
Edelbrock Street Dominator Manifold
600 Holley Vac Secondarys
Twin 2.25" system, single Super Turbo muffler each bank
4sp Top Loader
9" with 3.55 gears
16:1 GT Steering Box
Lowered (GT Height) front springs
Reset 6 leaf rear springs
KYB Shocks all round
The color is Facotry Original (But resprayed) Reef Green
Interior is Black Vinyl
This car has had a lot of effort put in and we are very proud of it.
When we are on GT Club runs (such as Victor Harbor where the photo's were taken) I drive the XW while dad drives his XY GTHO PhIII.
Sorry bout the long spill but im very proud of the car, makes the old EF seem very slow tho
