Pull the paint code off the compliance plate

That should tell you the colour

It's a rare colour but it isn't worth super dollars

Most people are not big fans of brown cars sadly

Is it complete?

If yes than it is def worth more than the cost of a 351 and toploader

Do you have any pics?? At least there will be some pictorial record of it having ever existed rather than just a word of mouth thing.

Is the body a basket case?? If not, it's worth saving being such a rare car. According to the GT Club website there was only 1 coupe made in this colour so it would be a shame to see this coupe scrapped. It's about as rare as they get!!

Some Browns look great, Walnut Glow and Satin Brown look sensational!!

1 of 2 sedans, should be paint code Z192 from the GT Club website.

I wonder how much these 2 variations of CUB Brown differ.

I wonder how much these 2 variations of CUB Brown differ.
I do have one photo of it i found in the glovebox, it is from some time ago as the car is in a stripped state atm and looks a little worse for wear.

I am not going too far ahead of my self just yet, I would still like to clarify weather it is what it is.
Is there somewhere i can cross refrance the id to be sure it is the CUB car?
Dose someone else have a photo of the car? to prove it is???


**I am not interested in calling anyone just yet so stop asking please***

Pretty smple really

The paint code is Y229

http://www.falcongtclub.org/PaintCodesXAXB.asp

That is CUB brown

If the VIN number on compliance plate, passenger shock tower and block starts with JG66 then it is more than likely the only CUB brown XB GT coupe

Yes, it is very rare but the colour isnt one of the popular ones

Please note, you would want it verified by someone in the know to ensure it isnt a rebody though.

I know you dont want to call anyone but pm barra64 (the GT historian) and he can help you out.

Good luck with it

Am I missing something here, it is a one of one and not a desirable/popular colour.... WHO CARES!

I wish I owned an one off XB GT coupe!

Bet it would look awesome once it was done up.

All i can say is, don't scrap it. If you want the motor and toploader, take it. Then give someone else the opportunity to save it. Then in return for the original block, ask the new owner to get you one in better condition as a thank you for letting him/her save it.

when we tried to work out the CUB xb gt sedan colour (it had a paint code error) it was described as almost like Royal Umber Y161 which is the flat non metallic brown common on EH's..

Someone will want it. You would have to have a screw loose to separate the original 351 from the shell. Bear in mind the toloader is not the original box for this car so keep that aside guilt free.

Well done on the find - youll make a few grand on it.

Hi
I accidentally stumbled upon this thread when I was doing more research for the resto of my CUB brown sedan. As you can see by my username I am the owner of the beer car from the XBGT forum, so this thread interests me a lot. I would love to see a pic of this coupe if possible.
How awesome is it to know that the cub brown gt coupe may still exist.
I hope the shell was not scrapped.
XP cruiser66 what options did the coupe come with. Does it have the country pack option by any chance like mine?
Cheers
