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 (www.rarespares.net.au).
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 Cleveland powerplant.
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).
The video shows Rare Spares Brand Ambassador, V8 Supercar legend and Hall of Famer; John Bowe taking the beast for a test drive see what JB has to say about it.
