    Model: FORD TE GL WAGON
    YEAR: 1977
    ENG/TRANS: 3.3Ltr 6cyl 3 Sp Auto
    BODY COLOUR: Pine-n-Lime Yellow
    INT COLOUR: Orchre/Saddle Brown
    Just picked up this beauty the other week,
    History is its a one owner 248klms on the odo.
    refreshed motor and engine bay cleaned and re painted
    everything is stock bar the Dash cluster which has the tacho.(set to the old KLMS)
    i have been doing the body repairs which to my suprise is minimal and has minor surface rust.found a anti corrosion module in the engine bay(may have saved it from harsh cancer and the interior has little signs of sun fade and only the drivers seat bottom has unstitched(easy fix for me)
    so unsure atm to go full resto or tidy up to get in rwc condition and drive as a daily.

    That looks like a Mazda engine borrowed from the marriage of both auto makers. Cortinas over here had fours and 60° V-6s

    The Aussie I6 engines are drooling material here. Nice find, nice work.

    Want more juice?

    One of the best I6 Ford purveyors in North America, although the Aussie 4.1L heads are the best:
