Those were the days! When racers like Moffat, Gibson, Carter, French and Goss would drive a GTHO at Bathurst flat out down Conrod at 150mph and it was exactly the same as the one you could buy and drive to the shops. Just knowing that and blipping the accelerator while parked in your driveway would make you feel like the King of the Road in the King of all Aussie cars!
For sale is this one of one build Frosted Pewter GTHO - a past GT Nationals winner and a genuine matching numbers car that has etched itself into Aussie GT folklore as the 'Silver Ghost' due to its original owner's exploits in and around Mildura, country VIC with this powerful beast.
One of only 5 Phase 3s built in Frosted Pewter Metallic, this car has been faithfully restored by renowned restorer Frank Portelli of Melbourne and lovingly cared for by subsequent owners. And rare, one of only 50 factory long shaft top loader and 31 spline 3.5 9" diff cars built and one of one based on the exact build specifications.
It is without doubt amongst the top examples of this most revered Aussie motoring icon. Originally sold from Mortimer Ford in Mildura Victoria, with full known documented history, including ownership by the late Trevor Jenkins, past President of the Falcon GT Club of Australia.
Adelaide GT Nationals runner up, nil accidents, Log books, day one original VIC number plates and restoration references, this example of the XY GTHO is as good as it gets. Get one of these beauties now before they turn 50 and everyone realises how important these race bred street cars really are. In our Kingsgrove, Sydney showroom for your private inspection.
