Previous owner neglected it, has been left out in the sun. All the leather seats have began to crack and fray.
Originally manual, has been changed to automatic. Cooling system for the transmission has been left out. Skips to neutral for a split second whilst changing gears when hot.
A bit of a slug when in drive, but when peaked through the gears it flies.
Requires a tune/service.
Wheel alignment needed.
Bar which holds the diff and axles centre at the back has torn from the body (Most Falcons have 2, these have 1).
Almost could be too low, bottoms out at the front every now and again, and also over speed humps.
Floor/boot carpet tearing up here and there.
Centre console starting to deteriorate from heat off the gear box (indicated in second problem).
Steering wheel squeaks and rubs, making it slightly harder to steer (still has power steering!).
Electric arial packed up!
Front electric windows buggered, have been converted to window winders. Back left window very stiff and tired, sometimes requires a bit of help!
Flat spot in the carby.
Differential problems, now will only spin 1 wheel (back right) at all times. Kind of good that you can't lose it anymore, and lays rubber very easy.
Doesn't miss a beat, very beefy.
Choose over a 253 any day.
Although the seats are worn a bit, it is still very comfortable.
Still a luxury liner on the road today, 18 years after its debut.
Red/maroon coloured interior/door linings all excellent, add that classy touch.
Has a cam.
Two town maroon on silver, still a head turner. Two tone seems to change the way the car looks compared to the old 1 coloured Commodores.
I'll re-velour the seats from the leather joins, making the backs leather and the fronts cloth-type, making it look like it was meant to be.
With the old three speed tri-matic auto, this thing will get up to 100kmh in 1st gear, imagine that off the lights when someone wants to get smart!!
If someone does a burn-out, I guarantee this will do a better one if they challenge you.
