confused ef rebuild

how hard would it be to put an nf interior into a ef falcon - im thinking of getting an ef and using it as a project and getting a nf fairline -rear damage- and use the engine and all and put the front panels on so how hard would it be to do a complete strip down and build up im also getting a factory to do it all in

Re: ef rebuild

The NF into EF interior mod shouldn't be too hard. In the club we've had of EAs with NC Fairlane interiors, and NA Fairlanes with EF Fairmont interiors, and there's a write-up about the latter on the site...

Re: ef rebuild

The NC's extra space was in terms of legroom; the width was the same and the seats will fit. I'm not saying there won't be minor complexities compared to just installing, say, an ED Fairmont interior. But it can be done. I just realised that the EF-into-NA article is not online at this time. But it will be soon!

Re: ef rebuild

thanks for that helpful info im following walinshaws transformation ef interior into a ea and probably do that because it looks a bit better than the early e-series interiors - would you know if an au or ba interior would fit? i might do the old switcharoo with my dads au before he sells it

Re: ef rebuild

AU/BA uses a different layout altogether so it would be a much bigger job.

Re: ef rebuild

ahh just to correct you there jack, it was an EL Ghia interior to an NA. Anyway, if you are going to use an interior from a Fairlane/LTD and put it in a Falcon/Fairmont you will have the modify the backreat parts of the seat as well as the side bolsters because they are smaller in the Falcon/Fairmont than the Fairlane/LTD. you would be better off getting a wrecked Fairmont Ghia and doing it that way, then everything will go on with out a problem
