If you like to go fast then this super tough XW Falcon ticks all of the boxes!! Starting life as a humble XW Falcon 500 and since transformed into this quarter mile monster!!

Inside consists of front and rear bench seats covered in black vinyl, along with original black door trims, reproduction GT dash fascia with genuine gauges, genuine GS steering wheel and a rear window venetian.
