I'm thinking of selling the XA GS and buying an XC GXL that i have seen. The XC has had a recent respray which looks imacualate in some sort of gold and is lowered, it also has a 351 Clevo and is auto. The 351 dosent have a carby and the car dose not have a RWC and is not registed. How thirsty are mild 351's? How easy is it to get 300 HP at the fly from an XC Clevo? $3500 is being asked for the XC, is this worth it?

Well it's not all that hard to get 300hp out of te clevo,but it will be a little thirsty, they are a nice looking car the GXL's,as long as it's a clean example and your happy with it,than look into it,but have a good look at it 1st,with no reg or RWC you should check it out carefully,depending on what has really been done to the car, will determine the price, it's a little hard for us to say yay or nay without seeing it.

$3500 for an XC that doesn't have a carby? How can you be sure that it runs okay. Sounds a bit pricy for me, but then again, if the body work is mint....

$3500 for a XC GXL with No RWC or REG? Naa man i wouldnt worry about it unless its something REALLY magnificent. Ive seen late model XC GXL's with the GT bonnet, etc for $2500 RWC and Reg around melbourne. But just make sure as said before by Galaxy to check everything. Ive been cought soo many times with cars that are "Suppose to be Road Worth Condition" and looked it only to find out that you need to put like $2000 it to it. But its up to you.

I'd pay $3500 for an XC GXL if it had some dollar's spent on the paint and the car,like he said it has had a respray but it all depend's on how much was spent on the car previously, can you get us any photo's of the car XA fairmont, it would make it a little more easier to comment on this vehicle.
