My New Toy/ Project

Thanks to Nick Falcon Coupe for this one. This is my new toy. 1968 XR. (302
wezzer C4 and Borg rear). Which will all end up in the bin, or on here don't know yet, Good body not a scrap of rust and was repainted two months ago. I will post some more pics after i pic it up, which will be in about two weeks.

The plan so far is to drop all of the XC's running gear in to it along with the disc brake 9". Plus all of the fuel system minus the fuel tank.
Then the next stage is to do some of the trim get the front seats repaired plus the head linning. So there it is the next stage of my life. Let me know what you think. Big John.

Re: My New Toy/ Project

I Like!! is it a brown or burgundy colour?
The diffs around 2" wider
But it should end up being around 100kg lighter than the XC.

Thanks Tony. Am looking forward to the challenge. It's been over 15 years since i started a new project. The best part is that all of the hard work (body wise) has been done.

Looking forward to seeing this project. Do you also have any plans for the body? Any stripes or spoilers?

Sounds like an interesting project.

Did they come out with a 302, I mean it's not original is it?.
