1976 FORD FALCON XB GT COUPE
$134,000 SHANNONS, MELBOURNE
IF THERE were any doubt about the strength of the current Aussie muscle car market, this should have removed it. Owners of 70s Ford coupes have seen their values rising steadily over the last few years and that trend has, if anything, accelerated in recent time. This clean GT with a 351 V8 and three-speed auto fetched a very solid $134,000.
For owners of tired examples (if there are any left!) it means you can afford to spend a bit on a decent resto and stand a decent chance of getting your money back.
What intrigued us about this result was the fact it’s an auto didn’t deter bidders from having a red hot go at it.
