A one-off factory-built Ford Falcon 6-Door, possibly Australia’s rarest car is going up for auction providing a unique opportunity to own a piece of Australian antiquity.
A 1970 Ford factory-built 6-door XY Falcon – the only one ever made – is said to be rarer than one of the 3 surviving GTHO Phase IV’s.
“This Ford XY Falcon Wagon embodies collectability and could be the rarest car ever manufactured in Australia. It’s the holy grail for Ford fans, the only one of its kind and it is in immaculate condition,” said Mr. Lee Hames, Chief Operations Officer for Lloyds Auctions.
“The story behind this car is just as special as the car itself. Winning numerous awards and featuring in auto magazines all around Australia, it has received great attention already, with enquiries flooding in since being published online,” Mr. Hames continued.
The cars narrative reveals that it was made-to-order by Ford for TAA Airlines in Tasmania and used originally as a courtesy car/limousine.
The September 30 auction also features a multiple podium finishing race car chassis built and run by Walkinshaw Andretti United Racing and driven by the likes of Courtney and Tander.
“It is an honour and a privilege to be the largest classic car auctioneer in Australia, having such a mind- blowing array of rare and collectable vehicles coming across our auction blocks in what is an amazing and maturing classic car market,” said Mr. Hames.
