    That models previous to the XD were bad for rust?

    I think most people would consider it a given that cars of that era
    turned to dust quite readily.

    That's what I said, XD's were bad for rust.

    Coastal cars make rust even worse. Also dust/mud conditions would rust
    them out too where it would get trapped.

    Chargers had the same problem. I think given the right wheel [17" or

    Most people probably wouldn't be so quick to *assume* as you are. Some
    cars did, and some didn't. It was very model dependent.

    Any that are still around without rust would be very few and have
    lived a very sheltered life.

    As usual, Noddy knows the facts but will argue just for the hell of
    it.

    The Ford decision to use the Cleveland with all its foibles as a
    stop-gap measure to use the engines up,...suxed bigtime. CR was low,
    ports too big [tho you could get "port-stuffers" to reduce them,] and a
    nicer intake manifold,..dual-plane tunnel ram soundz nice. But the most
    staggering feature, was its abysmal economy and lousey power.

    My 351c was a ****ing dog of an engine. It swore me off an 2V Clevelands
    for life. My 318 Val VF 770 was a much better engine With 2 bbls it gave
    230hp.

    I had a XC 302 GS (nostrils in bonnet) that went like a cut cat (or at
    least seemed to, as I had a 71 4cly Capri before that!) it had a 4
    barrel Carter Thermoquad on it, and when you booted it, you got nicely
    shoved back into the seat. But jesus, it drank more than Sir Les
    Patterson. The fuel consumption was horrendous. My old XY with 351 and
    Holley 350 twin bbl was much more economical, and it went well too.

    It would have been if it was stock but they weren't all that difficult
    to significantly improve, cam, carby and a set of extractors would have
    made a huge difference.

    Trouble is the only good thing about Valiants was their engines, the
    rest was a POS.

    They're 34 years old now. I reckon they might have earned the right to
    rust a bit by now :)

    There was no "stop gap" measure Jason.

    Ford made the conscious decision to build the Cleveland locally because,
    in it's day, it made more power than the Windsor and was a better
    "track" engine. Ford originally envisaged having a long association with
    factory backed touring cars as a means to sell more base models to the
    plebs, and of the two small block V8's in the Ford stable the Cleveland
    was their best option.

    What they *didn't* bank on was changes to both the touring car
    regulations which saw a lot of the Cleveland's advantage removed, and
    the new vehicle emissions requirements which made it tough for the
    Cleveland to survive as it was *far* from the most efficient of engines.
    The problem for Ford was that they'd invested heavily to build
    Clevelands locally at the Geelong engine plant, and were very reluctant
    to go through what the parent manufacturer was in the US in ditching the
    Cleveland in favour of the Windsor just a few short months after Geelong
    manufacture got underway.

    So, Ford Australia had to do two things. They had to prevent the
    Cleveland spewing as much raw fuel out the exhaust as possible which
    meant stifling the crap out of the thing, and pleading with the
    government to make the emissions changes quite small and gradual so they
    might have a chance of getting their money back.

    Which is why the Cleveland lasted until 1983 here and was killed off in
    the US a decade earlier.

    Yep and they were rust buckets from new.
    Within a few years of new the first signs of rust were there and it
    didn't get better.
    A bit like the Territory.

    Rubbish, I worked at Ford in the warranty dept. when XD's were new and
    can't recall a single warranty claim for rust.
    I've seen plenty of old rusty XD's but none when they were relatively new.

    > Within a few years of new the first signs of rust were there and it
    > didn't get better.


    My panel van had some rust in the plenum and in the bottom of the doors
    when I bought it SH with 100,000km on the odo, treated it with fish oil
    which stopped it getting any worse and it was still relatively rust free
    when I sold it with 450,000km on it.

    I dunno. I bought it coz it went like the clappers, and looked the
    goods. Gees, I was watching the petrol bowser pumping a days pay into
    the tank thinking WTF have i done..:)

    For me, they certainly were a nice looking bus, esp the v6 with the
    bonnet bulge, and some had the nice looking fake air intakes behind the
    doors under the rear windows. Mine was a 1600gt with the weber twin
    barrel downdraught carby on a crossflow head with extractors. That
    engine tought me that if you want a car that goes quick, it must be able
    to breathe in and out easily. We played with the jets a bit. used
    shitloads of fuel, but I could beat a Honda XL 250 bike to the local pub :)

    Had the interior completly redone in black vinyl, door panels, kick
    panels, home made console with stereo equaliser and more bullshit bling,
    but the whole lot was padded and studded ('cept the dash and crashpad)
    and looked shit-hot. The outside: had the v6 bonnet (dunno why) Artic
    Blue paint (did it myself) Black pinstripes, and Auger Hotwire mags with
    bridgestone rubber. For my first car, I was happy with it :) It looked
    the part, anyway.

    That was quite some time ago. Since then, I've had
    xy 351 sedan,
    xb 302 sedan
    xc 302 sedan
    Xd 4.1 ute
    Xg 4.1 ute
    BA SR sedan
    BF XR6 cab/chassis ute
    FG 6cly cab/chassis ute
    And now a Nissan Navara. Out of all of 'em the FG is without doubt the
    fastest off the line, it's silly how easy it breaks traction, and I've
    certainly embarrassed a few Holden owners in equivalent cars.

    But when those secondaries opened on the XC with the thermoquad...:-D
    Sorry, reminiscing too much... :)
    I remember... no; maybe some other time :)

    You need to hear that roar from outside the car.. it's something to
    behold afaic. :-) A sunroof helps.

    Mine was so bad, I had to sell it. Was a sad day, but I needed a ute for
    work.

    Yep. Not sure if it was the original motor, but it "used" a set of
    Bridgestone Eagers in 7 minutes. ;-D
