************************************************** *****************

Other relevant information.

I have decided to sell my 1968 XT Ute that I have owned for the past 10 years. It was my Pop's ute which he owned originally then it spent approx. 20 years in storage along with his collection of other Falcons. It was originally white but was completely restored in late 2002 when the ute had 77,000 miles on it with a full bare metal respray, engine rebuild, brakes all fixed up, new rubbers and seals throughout. Since then I have owned it as a weekend car and really it has only done 17,000 miles in 10 years. It has been regularly serviced by Ford dealerships and it still has the original owners manual.

The ute has the following features:
Fully rebuilt 221 cubic inch six cylinder - runs on unleaded fuel
Pacemaker extractors
Fairmont bucket seats
18" Wheelboyz billet aluminium wheels with 235's on the front and 265's on the rear. Lots of tread on all 4 tyres. They have about 8,000 miles use.
Tinted windows
CD player and upgraded speakers
Custom number plates - XT 221

Obviously it is purely just a cruiser and not built for speed. I love driving it through town and it always turns plenty of heads and sparks up conversation. Its a great car and I am only selling because I need to buy a family car (Ford Territory Diesel).

As it was restored 10 years ago, unfortunately it does have some small rust bubbles appearing in places at the bottom of the doors, around the B pillar and there is a patch on the drivers side back body panel where the tarp clips are. Mechanically it is brilliant and never overheats. It sounds great too and although its not a V8, I think it being a six is part of the charm.

I have just had it serviced, replaced the battery and rego is until February 2014. I am open to offers and welcome interested buys to come have a look. It will kill me to see it drive out of my driveway :(

Hey mate, the colour is a custom one I chose. It was basically chosen to look very similar to Blueprint (AU T-Series / XR colour). The ute was originally white but got a full bare metal respray.

What do you guys think of the price? Is it too high or just a dead market?

Just dead market mate. The 6 cyl makes it even harder to sell....

It might help if you put some nice period wheels on it and sell the ones on the ute now.

It has a nice stock theme going on through the ute and you may be missing the market who likes the more period look.

That wouldn't put me off if I were a prospective buyer, I'd simply do my own wheel swap. Means I could put on whatever I like.

Very nice Ute BTW, good luck with the sale.

Price drop to 13k. Rego expires 22nd Feb 2014. Looking for quick sale before rego is due or price will go back up after rego.
Cheers
