The Owners Story-
1971 FORD XY FALCON PANEL VAN RESTO
I dont have to spend or do anything to it I have bought it to drive and enjoy said owner, to his wife.

Theyre famous last words, as you can probably guess whats happened since then

I bought the car from my brother-in-law in 2003; it had been used, it wasnt precious. But it wasnt a rust bucket. Itd been bogged up before, but it was still a driving car and in pretty good nick.

I drove it around like that for probably around seven years, before I started replacing bits and pieces.
I started off with the interior doing the little stuff first here and there, then in 2005 I pulled the engine out in the shed. As the car stands now, its got fairly standard running gear 302 Windsor, C4 auto and a BorgWarner diff. It had a 9-inch in it when I bought it, but I pulled that out. Now its got a standard XY diff, but I found a guy who puts VL centres in em. Its also running an MSD electronic fuel injection system.

The first big teardown happened in 2007, I pulled the engine and resprayed the engine bay.

A few years later, in 2010 the car was torn down again, right back to bare metal.

Doors, windows, lights, indicators, bumper all came off.

It was about seven months all up before I got it back.

The car was resprayed in its current Teal Glow Blue, the motor was still in it though and the engine bay was white.
Then I looked at it and thought gee this is shocking. So I pulled the engine back out in 2011, and built a roller block 302 for it, as the last 302 kept having problems with a rear main leak.

The roller block has the one-piece rear main seal which fixed up all the oil leaks.

As we did a mild cam, the MSD EFI, its a lot more drivable. I dont know if it gets any better fuel consumption, but it just runs better and feels smoother!

It definitely gets driven though, thats what theyre there for!
My two girls have grown up in the back, and now one of thems got an L-plate on the back now. Its come full circle. She even asked me if she can take it to the drive-in movies with her friends next year, Im thinking geez I dunno if Im ready for that.

Theres one day I wont be able to drive this thing, and once that day comes I cant turn the clock back. I just keep it clean, wash it, and keep driving!
