Australian Ford Falcon XB GT ( Genuine JG66 ) in New York
1975 Australian Ford Falcon XB GT taped at the house in Saugerties, NY,
with the Catskill Mountains ( Platte Clove Mt. to be exact ) serving as a
back drop. Before anyone complains, there are MAYBE 100 Australian Falcons
in the country...
A total of 949 XB GT coupes were manufactured, with only 123 being produced
in 1975. This particular, genuine JG66, Aussie GT Falcon was imported by
the owner in January of 2000 and has been located in New York ever since.
There are a few minor modifications made, such as the Hurst shifter (
notice the left hand grip ) and the XY GT boot emblem, placed there in an
attempt to quill questions of the type of car it is by Americans not
familiar with the model. The chrome bumpers on this GT were factory option
that the original owner selected and was comfirmed by Ford Australia.
Turbo V8 Ford Falcon XB Hardtop
Phil's 1973 heavy weight Ford XB is no slouch. The Falcon is powered by a
turbocharged Windsor 383ci small block
Ford V8 engine running on E85. Tuned by BoostinOz, the Hardtop is making a cool 700hp
to the tyres.
