4 Sale: 1978 XC GS - 'The Yellow Peril'

Post by Woz on 21/1/2011, 12:35 pm

Currently advertised on carsales.com under 'Sundowner Ute' which quite obviously it aint but according to carsales the term 'panel van' was/is a popular term and not official FoMoCo lingo, ergo, they reckon they cant use it no matter how much I winge. Anyone else had this issue?

Its up for sale anyway at $8000.

Some specs:

1978 XC original GS with the gear (bonnet scoops, extractors, LSD, soft dash with gauges, full roof lining, 4 speed floor shift with centre console, driving lights).

At present it sits unregistered in a (dry) storage shed. When tuned runs very well. I had the engine completely reconditioned (long motor) with hardened rings and valves installed as I had LPG conversion in mind but never done so it takes unleaded fuel. Since the recon (late 90s) it has traveled 90,000kms. Mags are nice units too.

I had lots of good times with this car and had big plans (new paint, V8 with shaker scoop etc), but other priorities have come along. I would like to see it to go to a worthy owner. Regrettable sale.

Lift up window and drop down tail gate, not barn door. Real handy if you need to cart long stuff around. I can send you some pics if you like.
