1970 saw the release of what was to be become the most iconic sports car ever produced in Australia: The Ford Falcon XY GT.

Dominating at the legendary Bathurst race track the GT quickly proved itself as the fastest production sedan of the era. A highly desirable car both then and now the GT Falcon is the most recognisable car in Australia.

With a large and aggressively styled air cold air intake protruding from the bonnet and bold stripes on the side the GT became known locally as 'Shakers', nicknamed from the shaking action at idle from the intake scoop. The GT is powered by a 351 5.7 litre Cleveland V8 producing 224kw with 515NM of torque.

Delivered new in August 1971 by Kloster Ford in Newcastle this superb example of the iconic GTHO has been preserved in very original condition. It is accompanied by the original bill of sale along with verification letters form Falcon GT Historian and Ford Customer Relations documenting the options fitted and showing it’s a matching numbers car. This is probably one of the most original GTHO left in Australia; it has the original owner’s manual and has featured in several newspaper articles and the 2011 Home Grown Muscle calendar.

It is very unusual to find one of these muscle cars that has not been tampered with or fully restored to show condition. This is a car that wears it age well and shows its warts and all. The shaker has crazing through the paint, under the bonnet there is still signs of when the battery exploded some years ago and the paint have a nice patina. Inside is in excellent order with little signs of age and is all complete even the push button radio. The black vinyl is in great condition including the roof lining. The dash is unmarked, carpets are almost perfect and seats are in excellent order, this is a car that can only be described as a true survivor.
