I got me an 85 XF S Pack. Just plain standard really, haven't done anything to it. Recently "broke" the clutch and can't be bothered taking it in to get it fixed so have bought an 87 XF Panel Van instead :hy:
a few of my friends have xf falcons, ones got a 4-speed manual 6cyl, the other with a 5-speed, and another with an auto (a fairmont) which ive driven, good car to cruise really light in the steering but it had a few problems, the kick down switch didnt work and alot of oil leaks, the only thing i didnt like was the poor turning circle. another mate of mine has a TE cortina with a rebuilt 6, 4-speed manual and a mini spool. i raced it off the lights and it beat my AU up until 80km/h, i couldnt believe it.
I have a XW with a 250 X flow and C4 on 15" hi profile tyres. Runs like a dream as has only done around 6,000 KMs since total rebuild. Unfortuneately the XW body is getting pretty sad. Was a nice Fairmont before we decided to turn it into a Variety Bash car. Could be persuaded to sell or part it out if anyone wanted to restore it to its former glory.
