Ford Falcon XR GT Wagon

Around 50 years ago, Ford developed the 1967 Falcon XR GT sports saloon. The model was powered by an engine borrowed from a Mustang, a 4.7-liter V8 capable of developing 225 BHP. The carmaker ended its production in 1971 and developed the XY Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III powered by a 5.8-liter Cleveland V8 engine, tuned to develop 390 BHP and to reach a top speed of 250 km/h. The model started as a 1969 XW Ford Falcon estate, but then the owner decided to build a GT replica and so even left only the metal. It runs on 18-inch gold fish spoke wheels and under the hood it hides a Windsor V8 engine capable of developing 351 horsepower. The model is now on sale on eBay in Australia and the price starts at US$33.300.
