XY Falcon ute

I know its not a Holden but i thought some of you would still appreciate some old skool

Plan are to dump it hard in the rear and fit my gold GS stripes along the side. Also will be fitting a trick & manswetto stroker package and a 9 inch rear in the very near future, will be leaving the column shift tho!

Looks pretty nice. I'm assuming it's a 6 cylinder?

Looks the goods mate. Be very keen to know how you go with the full manual auto and coloumn shift. As that's exactly what I plan on doing with my 67 xr falcon.


Also would be a Windsor v8 I'm pretty sure. Wasn't it only the gtho that came with the cleveland? And then xa were the first to run a Cleveland standard? My xr is a 289w v8 from factory

Yeah it will be more effort with the column shift but i like the sleeper look to the interior, their was a very tough lc torana in one of the later street machine mags still column shift.. very cool

Yes its a factory 302 windsor, will be out to 347 very soon.

XA's were the first falcons to get the Aussie made cleveland available on all models (302 / 351), late xw gt's and xy gs and gt's came with the 351 cleveland but imported from America
