Falcon XY 9-second true street car
Arty's Ford XY runs into the 9s for the first time. The car was driven to
and from the track and raced in full street trim (3690lb with driver) for
consistent 9s and then driven to the pizza shop to celebrate!
Dandy Engines powered naturally aspirated 440ci Windsor V8 running on
98-octane pump fuel through the mufflers and street radial tyres. Making
800hp the car has room to improve yet.

Who says you have to treat one with respect? From Unique Cars magazine,
MG TC at Mallala
Filmed from a 1948 MGTC "Special" on a 4 lap sprint at Mallala. The car has
a supercharged TC engine bored to 1366cc, standard TC gearbox and a light
alloy/steel body. Original steering, shockers, beam axles, cart springs and
single leading shoe drum brakes make it a challenge to drive but it's lots
of fun! (Ignore the faulty tacho) The other car is a PRB Birkin S3 1600cc

The XY Falcon was produced from October 1970 to March 1972 and is today
renowned for being one of the great Australian classics. Ever since Paul
was taken to Calder Park as a kid by his father the XY GT had become an
obsession. When he came across his XY in 2004 (which started off life in
February 1971 as Fairlane) he knew he had to have it.
Ford Falcon 351-GT Moffat race cars.wmv
The Ford GT club put on a Ford GT Muscle Car day so I had a trip to heaven
today when I went down to Maroochydore to see the Allan Moffat race cars
along with a heap of other FORD & Falcon 351-GT's & GTHO's.
Many of these cars are worth $100,000's & the race cars are easily worth
$1,000,000 yet people drive their cars on the road. I was amazed! Most of
Moffat's cars were driven to the display although they didn't have far to
go. They all live at Buderim.
The 1971 Ford Falcon XY GTHO phase 3 gave Moffat his first Australian
Touring Car title in group 3 racing in 1973 & the first year a Ford Falcon
won the Touring Car Championship.
Ah.......... to return to those heady days...............
