        Looks in better nick than the chicken coop one.
        Man, that thing will be sweet when it's cleaned up. Absolute classic cars, the Hardtops are just damn sexy.

        Years ago, I remember being chastised (even on here) for saying my Uncle ordered an XA GT with Phase 4 upgrades (I didn't know the name of the option). Basically told that my uncle or I was a liar and everyone has made up stories about GT's with factory Phase 4 bits but it never happened. Now everyone knows about the RPO83. 😉

        I didn't care at the time he told me about it (I only liked euro cars) but now I would love to know what happened to it. I was a young guy when he showed me photos but I recall it as a special order LTD Silver RPO83 XA GT 4 door with dealer fitted upgraded suspension and American Racing wheels. $20k back then which was a lot for a Falcon. Probably no more but would be cool if it was still rolling around, even though he hated that it always overheated in traffic

            bonkers cash, but that's a neat example of an iconic car so I'm not really surprised.

                    Imagine if you were the owner of that thing, you’ve bought it speculatively for ~$40k & have no attachment to it (because who’d give a shit?) and you’ve just made a deposit on a small hovel in Sydney ...
                    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                      I'm interested to see what these are going for. Both seem to be in very good condition

                        Ford's last-ever modern Falcon GT changes hands for a rumoured $1 million

                        The last Falcon GT built by Ford Performance Vehicles has found a new home, with rumours suggesting the vehicle has sold privately for around $1 million.

                        Ford auctioned the last 500 local build allocations of the FPV GT F back in 2014, raising nearly $400,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation at the time.


                        Insiders have told CarAdvice the new owner also owns the 'last' Holden Commodore SS, which sold at auction in January 2021 for $750,000. It's understood the collector has a number of locally-made cars with similar historical provenance.
                        The ultimate GT F from Ford Performance Vehicles was fitted with a 5.0-litre 'Boss 351' supercharged V8 producing 351kW and 570Nm, sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual. A total of 550 GT F models were made (with 50 going to NZ), and were the most powerful Falcon GTs ever sold.


                        The last GT F built – with F denoting 'final edition' – featured a number of unique touches, including having special attention given to the panels and paintwork, as well as a one-off supercharger plenum design.
                        A second 'Victory Gold' body was also painted at the same time to ensure identical spare panels were available for #500, with Ford providing the panels to Mr Clarke before having the shell crushed.
                        Though the exact figure paid for the gold GT remains unconfirmed, if the rumours are true, it wasn't far off the highest price ever recorded for a Falcon: $1.15 million paid for a 1971 Ford Falcon XY GT-HO Phase III in February 2021.

                            If that's not completely retarded it's got to be close ?

                            I mean, it seems like a beautiful example, but 300k ? You can buy plenty of other things more desirable, many of them several times at that price !

                              Peeps on torrie forum were saying it's not the neatest or even correct in a few areas just that hasn't been any decent Xu1's up for sale for some time that there was fair bit of competition that drove the price up.

                              Couple of really rough Xu1's in need of full restoration or shit tons of wrong parts were trying to be sold near 100k mark like silver pos on ebay

                                I have a feeling this is like Crypto-currency. The only reason it went up is to launder drug money and in Australia, old steel bumper cars are the equivalent.
