1976 FORD FAL­CON XB GT COUPE

$134,000 SHANNONS, MEL­BOURNE

Unique Cars - - AUSTINS ON SHOW – 2017 -

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.
