This page is dedicated to coupes that you, the readers of this web site have. So please send me a photo of your coupe and some relevant information and I will put it up in this section.
This is Dave Boboc's John Goss. This coupe is in the States.
This is Grant Opie's Landau.
351C, 4V Heads 8.9:1 compression, 290BHP @ 5000rpm.
This is David Jaffray-Smith's XA Coupe.
429 V8, Twin 600 Hollies, C6, 245's up front and 265 rubber at the drive end.
This car has had 3 owners since new:
1) Old guy bought it brand new in 72.
2)It did 100,000 miles then a young guy got it in 96. And he did the following:
Pulled out the 302, C4, front springs, shocks and put in a 429, tunnel ram with twin 600cfm hollies
gear drive timing (sounds like it's super charged when its idling)
red holley electric fuel pump, rev limiter (not connected)
C6 (tricked to the max), Quicksilver B&M shifter
2" lower springs shocks and lowering blocks, electric radiator fan 14x8 Cragers, 245-265 Eagers, Alpine CD shuttle and head unit with 6x9's. GT dash with speedo in Km's.
3)David got it in Sept 99. And has done the following:
pulled off the front and rear bumpers, also the stone gaurds and front grille for a tidy/clean up.
started to clean underneath (only 2.5kgs of dirt so far !).
"The drive shaft, diff and rear axels are standard which is a bit of a worry. Not sure of the actual mileage of the car as the new speedo is not reading correct. ie. reads 100 km's but traveling 70 km's. the 2nd owner estimates 115,00mls as the car spent most of the time in his garage while he changed motors and suspention. The good thing is he kept all the original stuff. 302, C4 and all the suspention which I also own.
I've had to buy another bonnet to cut a hole in it to allow for the tunnel ram/hollies. (the original bonnet is too good to cut). I'll have to put a scoop on it to get certification. I plan to do a small tidy up as cheaply as possible to start with. Then see how she goes down the 1/4 mile. Drive it for a year or two then give it the once over. Nothing too drastic (famous last words). Probably de-wire the engine bay, new carpet, a bit of upholstery work (the interior is in excellent nick) and remove the little rust that it has. And maybe, just maybe, A GT paint job. Still not sure. Anyway that's the story so far....Not bad for only my 2nd V8."
