1973 FORD XA FALCON SUPERBIRD
$86,000 SHANNONS, LOT 52
WE HAD to wait 13 years for this homegrown XA Falcon that was a massive design departure from the previous boxy XR-XYs. Offered for sale by its original owner and one of 59 finished in lime glaze with black interior. Its original 302ci V8 was stroked to 351ci during a 1990s resto, along with a colour and appearance change and to a GT. It retains its four speed manual gearbox and factory louvres. With no reserve and 90,380 miles showing, bidding was strong.
