hi all

wondering if anyone knows where i could get my hands on a blank radio fascia to cover the radio slot in the xb. i dont really want to cover the hole up with something that is not original and that will draw attention to its self. This doesnt seem to be a part the gt shops have, i do recall from footage that the PHASE IV had them, but maybe they were one offs.

I think this what they look like? i'm not sure whether to sell it of not. How scarce are they? I don't recall seeing any on ebay.

Thats the one, as I said I've got a couple, but there realy the only ones I've seen. Got an original 8 track player out of an xb as well, but thats definatly not for sale.

I pulled it out of my old bosses xb ute (when he was wrecking it), which he'd had since new, and said that it came with it (along with gt dash, fuel cap, bonnet,grilleand lights and a 302).

Well ive learnt never to keep a closed mind with fords and their parts :)
All my books and inspections have never shown me a n 8 track in an xb...but weirder things have been seen, like XB doors on late XA's, XB's painted xa and xc colors.
So who knows...maybe the GS ute was a early bird and the owner asked for an 8 track?

I got the one for a cassette player i thought it would fit a superfringe am radio but the rectangle hole is too big. The dementions for this hole is 10 1/2cm X 4.2cm.

if you dont want the blank radio fascia, i'd definitely take it off your hands if you can find it. i was playing with the idea of covering the hole with a piece of carbon fibre i got from uni the other day. looks interesting lol - i'm not that desperate yet. i may just leave the space alone. a few missing parts here and there and thiefs wont want to bother with my car

Hmm,

I doesn't suit the Ford Radio Cassette Player I have. The rectangular hole I need is 2" x 4 1/2" (50mm x 114mm).

Thanks for checking any way.

Maybe yours if for an Eight Track?

i have an immaculate origina fascia in my xb ute, behind it is hiding my cd head unit. they unclip fairly easily. i do have a spare one, its not in excellent condition though. you can have it if you want it, i know exactly where it is to!. i also have the 2 round/1 rectangle cover to. but i'll have to measure it.
a friend of mine recently bought a xb van which was still fitted with its original 8-track.

Thanks,

Give me a PM if you find it and let me know how big the openings are.

I recently sold a blanking plate(out of a XA sedan) and was offered $100 for it!!!!
Chap seemed to be very happy with his purchase, and I was very happy with the offer!!
