Default Chasing Eb XR8 info hopefully

Hey all. Looking at what appears to be an EB XR8 5 speed manual project. Has a verification latter from ford says 1 of 1 paint, 1 of1 trim, 1 of 1 options car. Has Brock kit and wheels and Brock stickers including the Brock approved on rear quarter glasses. Any idea where I can find out more about the colour and Brock bits fitment? vin start is 6fpaaajgswndxxxxxx

Has been sitting like 17 years good ks. Story is Brock kit and Brock wheels were fitted new but just cant see that being true being later 92 model. He bought it from his mate who had it 17 years and bought from the first owner.

Paint code is FU and its original paint. Scratched through in numerous places and its paint primer then steel. All the dealer that sold it new can tell me is the colour was a non standard XR or Ford colour and some reference to a bodykit but nothing else. Found a reference on one website Unique cars and it shows FU as Cardinal red. But colour doesnt match the Cardinal red EB Fairmont a friend has.

I wouldn't get caught up in the 1of 1 builds. There seem to be a lot of those - I have one apparently
Wheels not included .... That's a lot of money for what's left

I agree, you get a run of the mill car/vehicle bog standard and change paint tint so that's 1 of 1 colour, but its still a run of the mill car bog standard, it's rarity is it aint.
Sorry for being forthright and cruel!

Cheers Billy.
