XW Panel Van

Unique & rare would be the best description for this XW Panel Van that I carried out some basic restoration & repairs on recently……. According to the people who know their old Fords, what made this classic even more special is the fact that it has remained “Window Less”…… Yes, most were cut open for the install of side glass though through the sands of time….. this panel van survived….. Very much original 302 V8 example with a 3 speed Column Auto though this has been converted to a T. Shift…… I carried out a variety of repairs including bringing the brakes back to life after many years in storage. Rebuilt booster & master cylinder… New steering box…..Steering column rebuild…. front end repair & align…… Service & auto service……. painting small parts….. Many more minor tasks……. With a set of Pacemaker headers, twin exhaust & mild cam…… this job certainly brought back many memories of how cars used to be from my apprenticeship days in the early 80’s…….
