    With an estimated selling price of $700,000 - $780,000 this 1971 Ford Falcon XY GT-HO Phase III ‘Bathurst’ Sedan is the highlight vehicle of the inaugural Shannons Brisbane Motor Show Auction.

    To be auctioned on the afternoon of Sunday February 10 this icon of the local muscle car scene, the fastest four door sedan in the world in its day, is one of an estimated 150 remaining and has become one of the most collectable production cars ever made.

    [​IMG]
    With a fully documented history from new, this stunning GT-HO is one of just five examples built in Frosted Pewter metallic and with the options fitted from new (including a left-hand mirror and 8-track stereo) is a truly unique Phase III.

    Better still for Phase III aficionados and collectors, the car is one of the fifty made with factory fitted close-ratio Top Loaders and a 3.50:1 thirty one spline Detroit Locker 9-inch rear end.
    If you miss out on this GT-HO, the auction has a very attractive ‘consolation prize’ in the form of a nearly-as-rare brand new limited edition 2007 Falcon GT Cobra sedan.

    One of just 400 built with the potent 302kW 5.4 litre V8 engine (tweaked by Ford Performance Vehicles) this GT Cobra has less than 50km on its odometer and is one of the hard-to-find and most desirable 6-speed manual cars.


    Expecting to fetch between $85,000-$105,000, there’s already a strong interest with some very fierce bidding expected on the night. Anyone with a bulging wallet or keen eye for Aussie Muscle is encouraged to get along for a look.

    Rather buy an HQ Monaro for half the price. Never liked the GTHO's.

    Sure it's history is epic, but honestly anyone who can afford 700k for it isn't the type who'd actually drive it.

    I dunno I just don't like em. The 1978 XC Cobra on the other hand now that's something I'd buy.
