WIN a 1971 Ford Falcon XY GT-HO Phase III Tribute
Unique Cars magazine has spent the last six months restoring a bare chassis
shell into what they reckon is the nation's best Ford Falcon GT-HO Phase
III tribute - with the help of the good folk at Grand Tourer Restorations,
using Rare Spares restoration parts and accessories
It has taken months of work, but the GT-HO replica is finished - stripped
and restored, laid in a stunning Vermillion Fire paint job with a fresh 351
There were a myriad of choices when it came to the specifications - the
original Phase III claimed 300 horses (223kW) but actually pumped out
closer to 350 (260kW). If you have the right combination of lunacy and
money, about double the original is possible, albeit at the expense of
driveability and reliability. The Unique Cars XY had to have both features,
so the target was more modest: a tad over 400hp (298kW).
So how did they go? They got a lazy 426 horses (317kW) without resorting to
crazy revs, plus a torque curve almost as flat as the Nullarbor. This car
has one very sweet engine!
The best part of this rebuild is; you could WIN it!...Unique Cars Magazine
open the competition to win this Aussie Icon on January 6, 2010 (check out
the magazine for full details on how to win it).
