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 !

What’s the story with that, how can they get away with that?
Is there no registry?
Are the bodies\blocks vin stamped?
If you had an original, surely the imposters would affect the values of yours??
Although at a million bucks (australian peso’s)...appears to be unaffected   ???

A good repo will set you back anywhere from $60 to $100,000. a mate of mine builds them for customers, and is very switched on with them. He knows what to look for, and often gets called on to verify. No diff to the usa and C Jets, People will always fake to make a dollar, and people will always build replicas because they cannot afford the real deal. Buy in price is the decider, as it costs the same to do body work on any car /engine. A good repo you can drive and not worry about, a million dollar car?
