This is my XP Coupe convertible. It was converted in SA a few years ago and the roof works well. It originally ran a 200 super pursuit 6 but about 12 years ago I converted it to a 289W, C4 , 9" & XY Disc brakes using the Hatfield conversion kits. I have upgrading the motor again to a 302 roller cam from a 95 XR8. I run a small 350 Holley, electronic dizzy & manual fuel pump. It is a very sweet motor and can hit the key tomorrow and drive it anywhere. It recently did some movie work on the Gold coast & northern NSW appearing in 4 episodes of the British soap "Heart Beat". It was the car that the English Bobbies drove while casing some villains out in Australia. A bit of a hoot so keep an eye out for it when it comes out some time in '09. Had to change the mag wheels back to standard rims & white walls for the shoot and decided to leave it that way for now.
