A mill?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess. They're not my cup of tea, but highly sought over by muscle car collectors over here. And $1M in Australian dollars is only about $750K in US$, but still.....

and I guess, they were a 'factory special' from back in the days when factories had to homologate race cars and make them available on the road. You could order one of these (380hp with all the boxes ticked) and you could drive them onto the track and race them. They made about 300 and with the ones lost due to racing, theft, poor driving, there's only around 400 left......

     A 4 door 6 banger Falcon with a stripe kit. ;) I'd like to understand Ford's logic behind the Falcon choice. That car in the USA had a better chance of getting a grocery bag rack than a hi Po engine.

I agree, the 'taxi cab' 4 door thingy is not my style. Yes, they were Aussie's 'Musclecars' and are now very valuable. That said, my preference would be the 2 door XA or XB Falcons. Just me...

With 300 being made and after theft, poor driving, and racing with around 400 round and about I would look closely at those  Vin numbers !
