Description

XY WAGON. 351 CLEVELAND. TOP LOADER. V8 BORG WARNER DIFF (NOT 9 INCH)

ACCORDING TO PREVIOUS OWNER HAS GENUINE GT BONNET, SHAKER, DASH, STEERING WHEEL (WHEEL NEEDS RESTO, NO HORN RUBBER INTERNAL PAD IS IN VGC) AND SEATS BUT DOES HAVE AFTERMARKET PLASTIC GT CONSOLE. INTERIOR IS IN VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH NEAR PERFECT SEATS AND CRASH PAD WITH SOME BLEMISHES ON THE DOOR TRIMS.

CAR IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN PAINTED AROUND 25 YEARS AGO IN A DEEP COCA COLA RED THAT LOOKS BLACK ON DUSK BUT HAS A NICE FLIP IN SUNLIGHT . PAINT STILL PRESENTS WELL WITH MINOR RUST BUBBLES IN SOME LOWER PANELS (TAILGATE, SOME DOORS , REAR QUARTERS, FRONT GUARDS ARE GOOD) THERE IS NO STRUCTURAL RUST THAT I AM AWARE OF. THE CAR PASSED A ROADWORTY 12 MONTHS AGO AND HAS ONLY DONE ABOUT 500KMS SINCE. IT DID HAVE DUMMY HEATER HOSES FITTED FOR THE RWC WHICH I STILL HAVE, HEATER NOT WORKING.

MECHANICALLY THE CAR IS VERY STRONG WITH VERY HEALTHY 351 CLEVELAND WITH QUALITY ELECTRONIC IGNITION , EXTRACTORS AND NEW 780 HOLLEY.  WHEN I BOUGHT THE CAR ABOUT 18 MONTHS AGO I HAD MY MECHANIC INSPECT IT AND HE INFORMED ME THAT THE ENGINE HAS HAD PLENTY OF MONEY SPENT ON IT AT SOME POINT WITH SCREW IN STUDS, GUIDE PLATES, TRIPLE VALVE SPRINGS AND ROLLER ROCKERS (I HAVEPHOTOS WITH THE ROCKER COVERS OFF), STAGE 2 CAM AND EXTRACTORS BUT WHOEVER BUILT IT HAD USED CHEAP ROLLER ROCKERS AND ONE OF THE PINS THAT HOLDS THE ARM WAS WORKING LOOSE AND THAT IT WOULD BE CATOSPHROPHIC FOR THE ENGINE IF IT DROPPED A ROCKER, I HAD HIM FIT NEW YELLA TERRA BILLET ROLLERS AND WE ALSO FITTED THE NEW 780CFM HOLLEY AS IT WAS RUNNING A TOO SMALL 580CFM. 

MY MECHANIC ALSO COMPLETELY REBUILT THE GENUINE TOP LOADER SHIFTER AS IT WAS JAMMING IN GEAR ON THE ODD OCCASION, NO PROBLEMS WITH THAT SINCE THE REBUILD.

I HAVE RECEIPTS FOR ALL OF THE WORK I HAVE HAD DONE SINCE OWNING THE VEHICLE.

THE CAR SOUNDS GREAT AND GOES REALLY WELL WITH PLENTY OF POWER AS YOU WOULD EXPECT.

THE WAGONS ARENT EVERYBODYS CUP OF TEA I SUPPOSE BUT IT IS A BIT DIFFERENT AND GETS ALOT OF COMMENTS AND HEAD TURNS WHEN I GET IT OUT FOR A CRUISE.

THE CAR IS AN EXCELLENT CRUISER THAT IS A1 MECHANICALLY AND STILL LOOKS PRETTY GOOD ON THE ROAD BUT IS CERTAINLY NOT A SHOW CAR. I AM NEGOTIABLE ON PRICE AS NOBODY CAN REALLY TELL ME WHAT IT IS WORTH. I HAVE ADVERTISED IT AT A PRICE THAT DOESNT COVER WHAT IT OWES ME BUT I BELEIVE TO BE AROUND THE MARK OF ITS VALUE. OTHERS MAY DISAGREE I SUPPOSE. 

CAR IS LOCATED IN EAST GIPPSLAND BUT I CAN BRING IT TO MELBOURNE IF ANYONE WANTS TO INSPECT.

IT IS ON CLUB REGO SO WILL BE SOLD UNREGISTERED.
