1971 Ford Falcon XY GT

$98,000.00

Often cited as the greatest Aussie muscle car of all time, the XY Falcon GT was an evolution of the XW model and was launched in November 1970.
Retaining the 351-cid V8, Ford switched to a bigger Autolite 600 cfm four-barrel carburettor and lifted the compression ratio to 11.0:1 on the XY GT, lifting power output to a thumping 300 bhp. Three diff ratios were available, along with a choice of four-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmissions. Externally, the XY GT retained the matt black bonnet panels, grille and real panel and Super Roo decals but for the first time, the famous ‘Shaker’ bonnet scoop was used. Ford improved the GTs braking capabilities with bigger Kelsey-Hayes discs up front and the wheels were now stronger, using a distinctive five-slot design.

1971 Ford Falcon XY Sedan

Often cited as the greatest Aussie muscle car of all time, the XY Falcon GT was an evolution of the XW model and was launched in November 1970.
Retaining the 351-cid V8, Ford switched to a bigger Autolite 600 cfm four-barrel carburettor and lifted the compression ratio to 11.0:1 on the XY GT, lifting power output to a thumping 300 bhp. Three diff ratios were available, along with a choice of four-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmissions.

Ford improved the GTs braking capabilities with bigger Kelsey-Hayes discs up front and the wheels were now stronger, using a distinctive five-slot design.

The GT could also be ordered with an optional 36-gallon fuel tank. The ultimate development of a family of fast Fords that began with the XR GT in 1967, the XY GT remains a fantastically capable road burner today. In 1971, Allan Moffat and the Falcon dominated Bathurst and Fords filled all but one of the top six places in the classic enduro that year. Sold new for just two years, the XY GT was built in strictly limited numbers (757 were made in 1970, 800 in 1971, with a further 300 Phase IIIs) and has become one of the most collectible Australian muscle cars of all.

This Car is Remarkable Car and wont last long at this price.

Engine was rebuilt by Tickford Boys who have signed under the bonnet with 500 BHP at the4 back wheels this car has had a limitless amount of money spent on her to have her in the condition she is in today, this is a collectors car and will only go up in value.

More Vehicle spec and Pictures will be uploaded in the next few days.
