    Nah, wasn't me - that belongs to the neighbour. They had just traded their non-XU1 and bought this one new. His dad died and he's kept it pristine ever since.

    Turbo was an Aust-designed & built kit (had a mean kick to it).

    Picked this up recently for fun, not so much an investment. Was 4.1 auto now 351 4 speed ( cause it's more fun) Other half not too impressed but I'm having fun

    It only says "4.1" on the pack. Not a bad XB for its age

    I know this thread is about Aussie cars, however I was looking at importing an American Muscle car back just after the GFC. In the end I didn't go ahead simply because I only have the one car space.

    Boy they were cheap then!!!

    The XY GTHO Phase 3 does the trick for me.

    The Ho-ee would have to be one of the best Aussie built cars of all time.

    Nice. I used to have a white 74 XB (4.1 auto).
    Would still love to have a 351 coupe version of the XA, XB or XC but they're getting a bit pricey.
