FotD: 1983 240 with a 5.0 Ford V8

Our Find of the Day comes from David Moore who posted the info on Facebook. Thanks David!


Located in Durham, NC this 1983 240 Wagon sports a 1999 Ford 5.0 V8 with a 5-speed manual. It was professionally built using Ross Converse kit. David took it for a test drive and posted, “drives like a dream (a very fast dream)” That’s what we like to read! To replicate a 240 wagon to this level of quality would probably cost much more than the asking price of $12,995.

From the ad: Much thought and many thousands of dollars have gone into this build. It has a Ford 5.0 with GT40 heads, shorty headers with full custom exhaust. Loud in a good way! T-5 Transmission. Air Conditioning. Custom suspension with Bilstein Shocks, H&R lowering springs, Front Sway Bar, Volvo T5R big brakes, 17″ wheels to fit over the brakes, full custom upholstery with carbon fiber look inserts, custom red paint and more.
