Re: xw bigblock arrived

just out of interest. what sort of ball park did u pay for it?

i think you will find the GT wing is factory fitted if its metal. i think the GT wings were aluminium from ford. someone else who knows their GT should b able to confirm this. if it is genuine....dont sell it!!!!!

No longer driver a oil burner, bought me a real car

The XY wings were fiberglass with cast alloy ends and legs the alloy ones with the T-bar type legs were a motorcraft part and could be dealer fitted to the XA-B GTs. there not worth a lot I just sold one at a swap meet for $40.
