Xa\xb Falcon

Re: Xa\xb Falcon

Apparently there's quite a few in the US now.
Some of us Aussies are a bit upset that the Yanks are buying up our muscle cars.
Me, I don't begrudge them for it. We've been doing the same to you for years.
With the exchange rates, the cars are pretty cheap and there's a couple of companies exporting GTs etc (Mad Max replicar Coupes too).
Look for aussiecoupes.com. Don't go to the ACLF site. They hate all of you. :)
There's also a yellow XB that some copper owns in Philly or near there.
They did a comparo on it vs a Mach 1 Mustang and they're a lot alike. Not exact or anything but you can see the influences.

Lastly, glad to see you have some taste. They're not a bad car at all. I'd still like a Boss429 Stang but $200000 au is outta my league. GT40 or AC Cobra is a nice dream too. The 351 was the biggest "factory fitted" motor here for these cars but they'll take a bigblock reasonably easily.
Hey, while I think of it. Check out the 69 Torino. (68??)
Davo (a mate) has one and the XW-XY door handles are exact, The bonnet is the same shape as the XA. The windscreen is interchangable with XW-XY. And the XA was supposedly a totally new Aussie design. Yeah right! And pigs may fly. (Well forget about the helicopter rescue)

Re: Xa\xb Falcon

Hey while I'm thinking about it. My brother in law has a replica interceptor as per the Mad Max movies. The yellow 4 doors. It's actually an XC but it's copied as per original. He may be doing up an XB in the same mode.
Either way, it's a 351C, C4 auto, 9" diff etc. Loks the part and is getting a complete rehash now.
Photos were available on the net but I can't remember the url.
Try the following sites anyway
http://www.lastinterceptor.com/real.html or http://www.madmaxmovies.com/cars/mad...ica/index.html

He wore out his video rerunning over every scene with the yellow cars in them and faithfully reproduced every detail available.
If you're interested, let me know on sclayt0n@hotmail.com and we'll start talking turkey (or in this case turnkey) Oh my sick humour is killing me. Slowly but surely.

I have an XA GT coupe but it's not for sale. Everything has a price but I'd rather keep it.
If you want to butcher up a coupe to make a Max replica, I have a basketcase coupe that could be butchered for that purpose. (Repairable, but not for show standard. Fair whack of rust in it and it'd need a cut-n-shut. I have the 4 door front that'd go on it. Only difference is the windscreen frame.)
