I bought my hardtop in 1990 from an acquaintance and it
Was my first car and everyday driver until I parked it in my factory in 1994. Fortunately, Canberra has a very dry climate and the body appears to be still virtually rust free to this day. I put a 2:75 ratio 9 inch disc brake diff when The original borg Warner had seen better days and swapped out the factory C4 for a top loader. I removed the original engine and rebuilt it before putting it in an XY wagon. In hindsight, I now regret doing this. Despite owning various performance falcons, my coupe is, and always will be, my favourite “baby”.
