Australian Muscle Car - - Right Said Fred - Item No.18547

In 1970 Ford pro­duced a new XW GT-HO – the Phase 2, and with it a vi­sion to win at Bathurst. From the out­side, the Phase 2 looked very sim­i­lar to the pre­vi­ous 1969 XW GT-HO, ex­cept the Phase 2 now had 5 slot rims with chrome hub­caps. Me­chan­i­cally, the XW Phase 2 was a dif­fer­ent car from its pre­de­ces­sor. The Wind­sor en­gine was re­placed by the new 351 cu­bic inch Cleve­land. This was a high revving per­for­mance en­gine. The new Cleve­land had the po­ten­tial to pro­duce great horse­power, the GT-HO en­gine was rated at 300bhp, but the true fig­ure would have been closer to 345bhp. The new GT-HO would not dis­ap­point on the race track, with Al­lan Mof­fat win­ning Sandown and Bathurst at the wheel.

The Cleve­land en­gine has an out­stand­ing level of de­tail in­clud­ing finely moulded hoses, leads, tub­ing and fine graph­ics.

The in­te­rior fea­tures the elab­o­rate steer­ing wheel and dash fea­tur­ing full in­stru­men­ta­tion and com­po­nents.
