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)
