Re: Help needed in buying xa, xb, xc coupe
You really need to start searching Ebay, carsales etc. Also, where ever you are going to come back to in Oz, see if you can get some one to buy the Trading Post, Quokka etc so as to look in the papers. Lastly, see if you can get a subscription to 'Unique Cars'.
Unfortunately, most of these cars have simply sky rocketed in price, especially factory V8 coupes. As xcgxl says, GT's come in A's & B's. The XC can be had in as a povo pack (6 cylinder yawn mobile), a GS, a Fairmont (standard was auto 4.1) as well as a Cobra but no GT.
The GS models had the twin headlight grille, sports dash, bonnet with flutes as well as auto or manual. There was one for sale recently, it was a factory XC GS platinum blue 5.8 4 speed with 9 inch for a measely $28,000 !!! Ouch.
I would think that the XC would be cheaper than that of the A & B as the XC requires anti pollution gear whereas the others don't. Also, the XC's appeared to have suffered from rust more so than the other two (from what I have heard on FF. Although in my experience, my '74 Landau has rust whereas my '78 Cobra does not).
As I said, just start looking and best of luck.
