Richy's 1970 XW Ford Falcon Restoration - PT 4
Richy's XW Falcon project is coming along nicely. It's incredible the oddball things you find when stripping a car.
We thought it would be great to share with you some of the little details which we found interesting.
Heater delete - This car was a factory heater-less vehicle. Usually, there would be a heater control in the middle of the trim along with a fan speed dial on the right
Original Ford Part - Heater delete plate. You don't see too many of these.
Firewall insulation - Untouched firewall insulation board bolt holes proving that this model never had a heater box.
Original wiring clips - There are a number of clips around the car which are not available new. It's vital to bag and tag these for a concourse finish.
Original fuel sender factory tape
Factory centre light wiring - Original wiring loom clips and Ford part number tag.
Suspension bush - Original FOMOCO suspension bush (potentially from 1970). Crazy right?
Radiator support sticker - This was interesting to see as we were always unsure if this sticker was applied to 6cyl models.
