Up for sale is my mint orginal XA falcon Sedan

This vehicle was literally a barn find - found under hay where it had been parked for the better part of 15 years. I am the 3rd owner and rebuilt all new brake lines, fuel lines, flushed fuel pump & carb and fitted new waterpump when I got it and have owned it for the last 2 years.
It has a 200ci 6 cylinder, with 3 on-the-tree (column change) manual. Recent work includes new exhaust & muffler, and due to a cracked header, cylinder head planed & valves refaced, new headgasket, service and tune up. The motor runs as sweet as a sewing machine (having only done and original 068000 miles when I got it) and now has 078739 miles showing. I've done 830 miles since last warrant.
Everything on this car works - dash dimmer, interior light etc. It's an excellent example of a car that's never been mucked around with. It drives lovely! The bench seats are in good condition, short of the rear upper has some cracking and sunburn. It has a towbar fitted, along with a rear window demister (which needs hooking up).
The car is very, very original, the only non-stock parts fitted are the stereo and the later model starter motor. The XA has been garaged nearly all of it's life, and is evident in the condition of the body - for an XA it's very good, as anyone who's had one knows how notorious they were for rust. There is a bit of rust work required on the firewall, bottoms of a few doors and various other little spots.
This vehicle was sold new by John Andrew Ford in 1974, and must have been the last of the XA's registered. When the ownership papers changed from handwritten to computerised, the engine size was updated as 5.3L not 3.3L which actually means this vehicle could be fitted with a V8 and not require a cert.
