1977 XC Ford Fairmont GS - 351 V8 4 Speed ... (SOLD)

The XC Falcon was the last of the all Aussie designed coke bottle styled Falcons that started with the XA back in 1972. The model lineup had been refined to include cleaner 6 and 8 cylinder engines to meet the new ADR rules. And while the GT name was gone the GS variant was still available and cashed up buyers could dial in any number of optional extras to enhance their new car purchase. For sale from Melbourne, VIC.

Originally sold through McKillop Ford, Townsville, QLD, this survivor XC Falcon GS was heavily optioned by the factory. In super rare Sherwood Green with Black trim, the option list includes the much sought after T Code 4V 351 Cleveland V8, 4 speed manual gearbox, the rare Option 48 GS Rallyee Pack with sports steering wheel, ROH 12 slotters, GS instrumentation, Flip Style push button fuel cap and bonnet scoops, factory dual exhaust, sports handling suspension and factory 9 inch 3:00 ratio disc brake limited slip differential. The XC also has the factory fitted AM radio, dual mirrors and bumper over riders fitted.

Just how rare is this XC Fairmont GS? According to the Ford Letter if Verification, only EIGHTY ONE 351 4 speed XC Fairmonts were made. And only one (irrespective of options) was painted Sherwood Green. The XC is fitted from factory with all GT Power Pack options consisting of sports suspension, dual exhaust and LH Diff tramp rod. The car retains its original very rare factory correct unique to 351 4 speed only close ratio Borg Warner gearbox (tagged prefix number 0503-008) & factory green/ blue stripe GT tailshaft and large yoke.

Basically, a thinly disguised Falcon GT without the badging!

In very good condition throughout, this ultra low mileage XC Fairmont has covered a genuine mere 108,277 Kilometres from new.
