Value of 1996 Falcon wagon?
In good condition, which his clearly isn't, a 1996 XR6 would be worth $2000-$3500. In its damaged condition, his is worth scrap value, barely worth $500.
XR6 with shot rings
The advice she has received is clearly rubbish. If as you say the car is running well, with no suggestion of a problem, she should keep servicing it as she has, and keep on driving it.
Ask Smithy Xtra EL Falcon auto jamming
By locking in third gear it’s going into ‘limp home’ mode, probably because the computer has identified an electrical problem with the gearbox. A diagnostic check should identify the fault.
Ask Smithy Xtra Brake shudder Falcon EL
There are a number of factors that could contribute to causing brake shudder, and you’ve highlighted another one. Finding the cause on an individual car can be frustrating.
Ford Falcon: Faulty door latch
To my knowledge they don't, but it would be worth your while next time to contact Rare Spares as they carry a lot of parts for makes other than Holden. The XG is now 14 years or so old and the doors date back even further to the XE/XF model, so it's probably a big ask for Ford to be carrying parts for it, particularly today when like all carmakers they are struggling to make a quid.

Dual-fuel EF Falcon stops suddenly
It's an old car and I'm guessing the gas system is also old and hasn't been serviced in a long while, so take it to a mechanic and have them service it. Your problem could be a wax build-up in the system, or a number of other things. Whatever, it needs attention.

Changes for xr8
TOO many differences to detail here, but in a quick summary: the XR8 V8 was uprated from the standard engine to 170kW at 4500 revs and 398Nm at 3000 revs; the suspension was retuned and lowered 35mm, with revised rate springs, revised shocks, bushes and roll bars; and, of course, there was the external styling changes and an interior makeover with sports seats et cetera.
IT SOUNDS like a fuel-supply problem, so check that first. The LPG mixer is most likely the culprit.
