1983 Ford Falcon XE straight 6 from Australia and New Zealand
A real cracker, cheap and long lasting
Water pump packed it in after 210,000km, not too bad for the original equipment.
Air conditioner needed to be changed over from the freon system and regassed, it made the A/C work much better.
Needs leaded petrol...booooo.
The car runs a treat, has plenty of power for the 6 cylinder and has never failed to start.
Gets heaps of looks as it's bright red, smart black interior, and fats on nice stock slotted chrome wheels.
Solid as a stone on the road, and comfy for those longer road trips to S.A. from QLD.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
