ZF fairlane custom build was a bit unique.

 

Spoke to the owner who said he did it 23 years ago for a bit of fun. Needs to be in full sun to appreciate the flecked paint.

 

Is a bit circa the 'cannon-ball-run' ZG on ebay for 36k atm, only done to higher standard & much better condition.

The pipe along the runningh boards are the exhaust and not mock-up. Bit of bling lighting too. Is 351 V8.

My bargain of the day from Cambelltown2015...

 

Fomo walked away with this for 20 gold bits... you may laugh!

 

Very under-rated carby the thermoquad 850cfm. Previous owner said it came off an XD351C. So will feel right at home!

I have a few spare clevo's so is nice to gather options and it appears to be in good condition. Just the adapter plate is worth that!

Hah, hah...thanks for trying to burst my bubble...

 

It won't happen. I had one in as good as condition as this but sold it a decade ago for $220 (with air-filter hsg & snorkel).

 

Although i'm still pistoff I sold it because air cleaner was like new, even decals at least i'm still $200 up. So ha,ha

No probs on the carb, might end up rebuilding my old one too so interested to see how it goes. There is a book on rebuilding them too (how to... series), see Bevan.

 

Nice score on the console, only is XE with that lid not XD! I too am rebuilding a black one I scored few weeks back but with electrics . Found a black back for it in my own spares just the other day.

 

Painting of your ashtray came up really well, might have to bring mine around. What paint did you use? I will obviously have to put some photo's up now. Mine started out as a leather clad ZJ console so got a few rivet holes to 'devcon' away & still missing a lid, but got other colours so might just paint up one when doing the AT.

 

I found the cheapest and most effective way of removing the contact-adhesive from the console was baby oil. It smells nice too!

I also noticed from this photo that my XE ghia console-lid needs repainting too. And there's a bloody crack in the plastic.

 

It's hard to find manual consoles that are any good usually because Ford in their infinite wisdom decised to use rivets to attach the outer boot flange. So I had better fix this one!

Nah is a XD console, look at the back where the vents and ashtray is

XE is all black whereas XD is light grey

Maybe a XE lid but thats it

 

Just used a can of matt black, cant remember the brand but its a no primer required paint

Need matt black or satin black, gloss black will look bad
