Now here's one that really ticks all the boxes......

If you're a genuine GT Coupe buyer, this is a special car will need little introduction...as it is about as good a details as you would ever hope to get anywhere today.....

Decoding as a genuine August 72 built "Big Tag" GT Hardtop, it was produced right in the middle of the now infamous 70s Super Car Scare, where a lot of unusual goodies got filtered down the Broadmeadows production line....... this example was ordered from new as a 4 speed Top Loader car, and is remarkably still running its correct numbers matching early American D-Block 351, with 4-no dot heads, (which is basically XY GT running gear, as opposed to the later XAs) further adding to the allure of this Big Coupe is that it's also a factory example of the now very desirable colour scheme of Red Pepper, complemented by the black trim, and factory blackouts, which displays today exactly as per its original build tag.

Sold new by B.S STILLWELL FORD in Melbourne who where one of the largest suppliers of GT Falcons from this period, it even still retains the original 70s dealer rear window sticker! this example remained with the same owner for many years in Australia before being purchased there in 1995 and exported to our shores by its current long time owner, who has sympathetically maintained the car for many years, and it is with some reluctance that the time has unfortunately come to release the car as a future investment for the next generation.

A solid and very honest survivor this old Coupe has never been restored, as its never needed it, it has been painted at some point in the past as would be expected, which still displays well, and it doesn't appear to have ever had any major repairs carried out around the body, the interior is very original having what appears to be the original seat covers, headlining, and carpeting, the original dash layout is all period correct with the 8k tach, 140 MPH speedo, early backward gauges, and correct "Rim -Blow" steering wheel.

The trim and bright work is all present on this coupe, and it has some neat 70s touches like the period rear window louver, 8 inch 12 slots, and rear spoiler.

Over all, this is a nice presentable package that has managed to survive without getting the treatment that sadly a lot of these cars succumbed too in the eighties, and this example still performs very well with decent road manners and a nice tight period feel, reminding the driver of why these cars ruled the roads back in the day!

This GT represents a very unique opportunity to own what has now become one of the most iconic Australian Muscle cars of our time, Hard Tops in general are now very hard to find, but to find a factory low owner Red Pepper 4 speed with its original engine.......

Better than money in the bank......
