Genuine 1971 XY Falcon GTHO Phase 3 in Vermilion Fire with all original Black trim. This is no ordinary GTHO Phase 3! Selected and prepared by Ford Race Team head honcho Howard Marsden and delivered to Rod Donovan and Ron Lindau who owned two WA Ford dealerships and were the top WA Ford racers at the time.
The VIN number of this GTHO (80561) falls within the sequence of the GTHOs of Moffat 65E (80565), Gibson 66E (80564) and French 64E (80563) ... all matching Vermilion Fire in colour. Bathurst race plans for the car by the WA pair didn't eventuate and after a brief stint as Ron Lindau's personal road car was subsequently sold by Lindau Ford to the Lush Brothers of Perth who successfully drag raced it for 11 years. The GTHO was then recommissioned as a street car and original trim and running gear reinstalled.
After ownership by a number of enthusiastic owners (a few who have called us since its arrival to rave about their experience with this wonderful HO) the car was Concours restored in 2004 in Melbourne and today still presents in spectacular show condition. Included is a full pictorial history dossier from day one through to present ownership and includes the original Log book, Owner's manuals, Ford verification and many interesting supporting docs.
This represents excellent realistic value and a terrific ownership and investment opportunity. Call for more information. This King is on display in our Kingsgrove, Sydney Showroom. Any inspection welcome. (Ref. 5077)
