1969 Ford Falcon XW GTHO Phase 1

$320,000

Plus Taxes & Licensing

As thinly disguised race cars went, Ford’s Falcon GT-HO was right up there with the best of them, a homologation special in the finest Bathurst tradition. Starting with the original Falcon XR in 1967, the GT featured a powerful small-block V8 with a revised camshaft, higher compression ratio and four-barrel carburettor plus new exhaust manifold for better breathing while stiffer suspension, front disc brakes and four-speed all-synchro gearbox completed the package. With the launch of the facelifted XW Falcon in 1969, the GT heralded new levels of performance thanks to the 351-cid Windsor V8, a twin-plate clutch, limited-slip diff, power-assisted front disc brakes and 36-gallon fuel tank plus a full complement of instruments. With trademark ‘Super Roo’ stickers and twin driving lights, the Falcon GT was the toughest looking Falcon yet. The result was a thumping 300bhp and 385lb/ft of torque, making the GT-HO the Just 662 Falcon GT-HOs were built, a fraction of total XW production, and for the serious muscle car collector and Ford enthusiast, a genuine HO must be one of the most desirable performance cars around, not to mention a rapidly appreciating asset.

Muscle Car Warehouse are excited to offer for sale this Falcon XW GTHO Phase 1. Originally built in August of 1969 and sold new through Cooper Ford in Frankston, Victoria, to a dentist who was also from Frankston. The car then passed through two more owners and then onto the fourth and current owner who purchased the car in 1999. During its current ownership the original engine was removed so that it could be preserved and the addition of the bonnet blackouts as it was originally ordered without them. The Reef Green paint has been redone along with the Saddle interior by a previous owner and is testament to the work that has been done as the car still presents beautifully. All the badging, mouldings and chrome work are also still in excellent condition. The car is currently running a replacement 351 Windsor engine, stroked to 393 which consists of an 850 Holley carburettor, Edelbrock inlet manifold, Edelbrock aluminium heads, MSD ignition and a solid lifter cam. The original Top Loader gearbox has been rebuilt to factory specifications and the original 9” diff has been upgraded and now houses a Detroit Locker centre with 3.25 gear ratios. Please note that the complete original matching number engine is included with the sale. Also still displaying the number plates with the original lettering and numbers. Running widened twelve slot wheels. Mileage currently shows approximately 53,000. This GTHO is a great example of this model and is ready to be enjoyed and an ideal entry level car into the GTHO market.
