Default Falcon RTV - Manual

Greetings all,

If anyone has a manual RTV that they want to send to a loving home, hit me up with a PM.

My son is after one. Styleside for preference, but will look at cab chassis ones as well.

Thanks anobserver,

Yep, saw that. We are scouring the carsales / gumtree / marketplace sites, this was more an attempt to see if some forum dweller had one that they wanted to send to another Ford enthusiast. No bites yet!

Might be better off buying a reasonable priced example and buying a manual sedan wreck from Pickles for the conversion, was thinking of doing this myself with my RTV, I just have too many projects at the moment and not enough years left in me to get them all done

We've also thought about that. Might be the go.

But then, might be tempted to find a 230 3V and a six-speed manual from the wreckers... Anyone gone down this path? ECU and BCM nightmare? Nothing was offered from factory in this combination I believe.

Probably deserves its own thread in the RTV section though.

I was thinking more of the Turbo XR6 + manual swap for its simplicity myself, I even bought a wrecked AWD Territory and a FG ute diff for the conversion to AWD, all still sitting in the shed.

Was thinking how cool a Turbo manual AWD RTV would be

You be better off finding a regular ute in manual, then convert it to an RTV.
