SOLD SOLD SOLD!

The Ford XB GT Coupe is one of the most sort after Aussie muscle cars available in the market today. This genuine GT is a fantastic example of a nicely restored car that has only had three owners from new. The car began its life in Heidelberg Victoria, where the original owner purchased the car from Courtney & Patterson Motors on the 12th of September 1974. The GT was ordered in Yellow Blaze with Dark Brown trim and a 4 speed manual floor shift, one of only 7 cars ordered with this combination according to the Falcon GT Historian. The car was originally purchased by a gentleman for his wife to drive. The family loved their GT and looked after it extremely well however within a few years his wife quickly got tired of the manual transmission and the car was converted from the 4 speed manual to an FMX automatic. These original owners kept the car for almost 33 years before being sold in approximately 2006 to a collector in Tasmania who restored the car within his ownership.

The new owner pulled the car down and decided to undertake a full restoration of the car. The GT was stripped down to a bare shell where almost no rust was found, something very unusual for a coupe like this. Only one small repair was required near the rear guard while the majority of the usual rust prone areas in these cars were all nice and solid and obvious in inspection that all the typically rust prone areas are still original steel without rust repairs. This is a testament to how the car lived it’s life and was looked after by the original owner. During the strip down, care was taken to document the numbers stamped into the body and engine block and the tags were kept in place with photos documenting this process. Some great forethought to provide piece of mind for future buyers that they are getting the genuine article. The car was professionally recoated in its original Yellow Blaze colour with the GT Black outs all round.

The original matching numbers engine was rebuilt and placed back into the car along with the FMX automatic. The driveline and suspension were also given a freshen up at this time with power steering added to make the car a nicer driver. Inside the dark brown trim was in need of a freshen up. Being one of the less common trim colours, sourcing the correct material proved difficult meaning an original sample had to be sent off to the USA where a roll of Vinyl was professionally colour matched and returned to Australia to trim the car. The car presents very well inside and has been finished nicely all round.

Underneath, certainly presents very well, nothing showy or over restored just nice and honest. You can clearly see the car has a very good body with no signs of the typical repairs in the lower rear quarters, inner quarters, sills, sill ends infront of the rear wheels… Shes a very good body. The car sits on a set of two piece mini light style wheels that were custom ordered and imported from New Zealand. Following the restoration, the car was sold to the current owner in Queensland but a house renovation is taking priority so this coupe is on the market. The sale includes a letter or authenticity from Ford and the Falcon GT historian as well as the original handbook and service manual for the car.

All said and done, this is a rare opportunity to own a nicely restored example of a genuine XB GT Coupe with matching number engine in place and in a rare and striking colour combo. The car has a known history with only three owners from new and still has the original handbook and service book with it. A great blue chip investment for someone chasing one of Australia’s most sort after 70s muscle cars.
