1974 FORD FALCON XB GT SEDAN
The XB GT represents the end of an era and is the final chapter in the legendary Ford Falcon GT story. Launched in September 1973, the XB range was restyled with a new split grille, one-piece taillights and some significant mechanical improvements such as the option of four-wheel disc brakes. Powered by the 351ci V8 with a four-barrel carburettor and developing 300bhp at 5400 rpm, the XB GT certainly wasn’t lacking in grunt and could still turn the quarter mile in 15.8 seconds on its way to a theoretical top speed of 200 km/h. With a choice of four-speed manual or three-speed F.M.X automatic transmissions, the XB GT had a limited-slip differential as standard. The XB GT was again sold in either sedan or hardtop guise with blacked-out bonnet, grille and rear panels plus GT badges and luxurious interior. One area the XB GT was improved over its
predecessor was the optional four-wheel disc brakes and the press generally sang the praises of the new model.
Here for sale is a stunning example of a Ford Falcon XB GT sedan. Built in March 1974 and finished in one of Fords HERO colours of the day, Red Pepper and we all know nothing says Falcon GT more than red!! Complimenting the beautiful Red Pepper colour are the factory black accents matched together with the tasteful addition of the ever so popular chrome twelve slot wheels. The body and paintwork both present exceptionally well. Having left the factory with the Protection Pack option this GT also has side protection strips and bumper over riders. Bumper
bars have been colour coded to suit the owner preference. Some of the other factory fitted options on this car are power steering, factory integrated air conditioning, radio cassette player, tu-tone bonnet paint and rear demister, together making this Falcon GT an enjoyable car to drive. Inside this Falcon GT is just as nice, with highly desirable white trim which works perfectly with the Red Pepper exterior. Again, all as it left the factory with the addition of an aftermarket steering wheel but with the original included in the sale. Powering this Falcon GT is a 351 Cleveland but from an XAGT sedan so it is not a matching number vehicle although the whereabouts of the original engine is known and can be negotiated into the sale if the new owner desires. The gearbox is an FMX automatic and the diff is the original 9 inch unit. Receipts for work done on the car are available also and so too are some other original items such as the air cleaner.
