SOLD Raw Orange 1971 XY Falcon GT-HO Phase 3 Tribute
Australian Muscle Car Sales has listed this unique 1971 XY Falcon GTHO Phase 3 Tribute, built to the highest standards by Falcon GT Restorations (FGTR) in Raw Orange, with all available period-correct Ford options.

In the 1970s, Ford provided customers with the option to paint their cars in what they called "Fleet colours" or their Corporate colours. These colours were associated with various major Australian corporations. If you look through the colour charts, you'll come across familiar names. Here are some examples:

  • Y113: Rothmans Blue
  • Y117: Brambles Red
  • Y120: Daimler Blue
  • Y154: Betta Primrose
  • Y229: C.U.B. Brown
  • Y244: Pepsi Yellow
  • Y301: S.T.C. Yellow
  • Y340: Hughes Blue
  • Y356: Kwikasair Violet
  • Y308: Budget Green

These colours allowed customers to customise their Ford vehicles with hues associated with prominent Australian companies. It was a unique way for customers to display their affiliation or preference through the colour of their car.

Corporate, government, and fleet sales were a substantial part of the Australian car manufacturers' business. Therefore, developing unique fleet shades posed no challenge at all. 

Available now with Australian Muscle Car Sales, this is undoubtedly the finest XY GTHO Falcon Tribute on the market. Built from the ground up by renowned GT restorer, Falcon GT Restorations and completed in 2023, this Raw Orange HO has had a full concours restoration at a cost of over $250,000. The attention to detail is second to none.

The result is a one-of-a-kind, powerful, reliable, and exhilarating Phase 3 Tribute that is guaranteed to catch attention. Having covered only 298 miles, this GT HO showcases a commanding 640hp Mansweto built engine, meticulously dynoed, springing to life with the unmistakable roar of the 351 V8.

Constructed by one of the industry's finest for a discerning private client. With no need to endure the waiting time for a custom build, this GT HO is truly a showstopper.
