The Jewel in the crown of GT Falcons. Stunning Neil Thompson of Grand Tourer Restorations restored 1971 Jewel Green XY GT Falcon. This is just spectacular! A rare find and one that will appeal to the GT aficionado who is looking for the best of the best!
Very late build November, 1971 XY GT finished in Jewel Green Metallic with rare S2 - Saddle with Cloth insert trim, and amazing tick every box options including factory SUNROOF, Air Conditioning, Eight Track and Dual sports mirrors. All wrapped up in a matching numbers 351 4V Cleveland with highly desirable phantom HO spec factory fitted 31 spline 4 speed close ratio long shaft Top Loader gearbox and 9" LSD diff with 3.5:1 gears.
Imagine the original owner heading into his local Ford dealer - Col Paige in Footscray, Melbourne to order this beauty. Obviously looking for something very special, not the typical boy racer impact colours that were more common on the factory order forms but something more classy, with nearly every option imaginable selected along with the critical choice to build this beauty as a manual transmission car. And little did the original owner know that hidden under the skin of this beauty were some super desirable run out HO parts to put the cherry on the cake. This was certainly a one off build. One of the the last XY GT Falcons built, special in its day and perhaps even more special today.
You will not fault this XY GT. Soak up the beautiful Jewel Green paintwork, the luxurious S2 trim, wind back the Golde SUNROOF and let the sun shine in. Or refit the factory air conditioning (all included) and cruise in comfort while listening to your favourite music from the 70s on the 8 Track stereo/radio. This is a very nice place to commute to work, take a nice cruise to the country with the family, or go for a weekend blast to clear the cob webs of the working week.
A timeless beauty that will have the show judges dumbfounded with attention to detail, this car is still in the ownership of the gentleman who purchased the car in 2011. It's now time for the next custodian to cherish this beauty and to fully understand why "Going Ford is [STILL] the Going Thing!" In our Kingsgrove, Sydney showroom for your private inspection.
