falcon xy 500

hey guys,
just wondering if anyone would know wether an original falcon xy 500 (v6 3 speed manual colum shift) would still be able to get upto speeds of 110-120 the reson for asking is i'd be doing a little driving in the country where the speed limits are high and the lady im buying the car off doesnt go that fast.

Re: falcon xy 500

It would be a straight 6

If you mean 100 to 120 km/h it should do it OK

You may need to change up to a 2.9:1 diff if it has a 3.55:1 or the fuel bills will kill...
