Default ****box rally car wanted Oct 2024

I've been lucky enough to have my entry for next spring's ****box rally approved

Bendigo to Townsville

since Adam and I are both ex-Ford PD engineers (team name Ex-Fordies) we thought it would be almost mandatory for us to take a Falcon of some description (possibly open to something else but a falcon is favorite, or a RWD Terry)

Rally rules are that the total cost of the ****box, including all repairs etc but not including rego, rwc, spare tyres etc can't exceed $1500, so the reason for this request is to ask here if anyone might have something for us, or have something coming up in six months, or have any other leads? Gumtree etc are a little empty at that real bottom of the range

any other suggestions of sales sites?

once we get more organized I'll be tapping everyone here for fundraising. In case you are not aware, its all run on behalf of the Cancer Council


at the moment though, it's just an initial ask on suitable cars

many thanks

Simon and Adam

Get a ute or wagon, more robust rear end and can carry a bit of weight. My nephew has run an AU ute for 3 rally's with no issues.

Yer agree re a Ute.
Besides you donít need to carry passengers and the tray can carry a lot as long as you can get one with a hard lid or good tarp.
Will be good to follow this thread of adventure.
