1973 Ford Falcon 500

Where: trademe.co.nz, Canterbury, New Zealand

We are a suckers here at PistonJuice for a monster yank-tank surf wagon, even if we have never even stood on a surf board. So this slightly different to our UK eyes Aussie Ford peaked our interest. It’s a 302 V8 with 200,000 km (120,000 miles) and had a full re-spray in 2013. It needs interior work and at least an under-bonnet valet to make it really great, but as the ad says its ready to be driven now and for under £8k who can argue? We’d change the 14″ wheels as they look a bit weedy under the massive arches, but we’d stick to a similar look.

Price: $16,800NZ (£7830)
