I am looking at an XR6 XG tomorrow and I just wanted to know if any of the tags is meant to say anything special or if there is like a tell tale component or something to look for to guarantee it is the real deal. It is a polynesian, 5spd, with 10 stack CD (dunno if factory?), and unsure of any other options.

look at the compliance plates. Then check the codes with the chassis number, engine number etc. If you need call up Ford and ask them to check it on the computer.

and it should have the front XR Lights, mags n shit, just the usual stuff

yeah, problem is that sort of stuff is cosmetic and easily copied onto a base falcon. The only way to be sure is to trace the numbers.

Thanks guys.

Casper, which part of Ford should I ring? Is there a dept that deals with these sort of questions? Or do I just ring a ford dealership?

Check to make sure the Engine number / VIN / & compliance plates all match up
Then try yer local Ford service section, The Ford Discovery Centre, Yer local Tickford Owners Club, or even post details here & I'm sure you'll soon know what you're looking at (Main info you'll need off the plates will be model number & engine code,other bits that could be of interest also would be paint code, trim code )
