1973 Ford Falcon XA GT RPO 83

Now this is a rare car! August 1973 built XA GT Falcon with the legendary Regular Production Option (RPO) 083. One of only 250 RPO 83s produced (1 of only 130 sedans), all in that 8/73 month and all 4 speed Top Loader manuals.

This is the car Ford quietly built more than a year after the GTHO Phase IV programme was cancelled in June 1972, to assign and use up many of the special HO components that had sat without a production vehicle to go into.

Virtually unknown at the time they were produced, these cars have become one of the most collectible of all Falcon GTs, and this example is stunning in its factory Polar White colour with B2 Black with cloth trim. Its options include the Black vinyl roof (in excellent condition), radio with eight-track, black bonnet and rare tinted glass all round.

Featuring the all matching numbers 351 4V Cleveland and a host of factory GTHO PHASE IV options including:
HO 780 Holley
HO HM Headers
HO Balancer
HO Manual Choke
HO Buddy Bar
HO Vacuum Tank
HO Solid Cam
HO Winged Sump
HO 9 inch diff with Detroit Locker

Restored in 2005 with all original factory components reconditioned or replaced with New Old Stock inc factory NOS Hawaiian cloth inserts, correct shock absorbers, genuine boot mat etc..

A true fast appreciating Australian Muscle Car classic along the lines of the GTHO Falcons and certainly one for the keenest Ford Collector. Comes with OPT083 plates if sold in Vic. Currently in our Kingsgrove, Sydney Showroom. (Ref. 5174)
