the ultimate road car, every boldy styled inch of it

this is a genuine April 1970 XW GT. Cleveland 351 cubic inch engine, 4 speed Toploader transmission, 9 inch differential ..all the good bits, standard from the factory. the colour is called Reef Green, for those wondering and the interior trim is Saddle. it's all original (except those widen 12 slots and the radio, but i intend on replacing those soon. the wheels with reproduction 5 slots and put the original push-button AM radio back in).

I thought this might have been the surprise. Will have to pop over and see it soon. So what's happened to the other cars?

i've had just the one car for about 6 months now. a few months ago, i realised there was something missing in my life (sad, i know) so i started looking around for another GT. this time though, it had to be the real deal, totally original and well looked after..

and here it is. i'm just the 4th owner of this car. it was originally sold through peter warren ford in liverpool nsw. it then went north to brisbane, the 2nd owner had it for about 20 years (and it sat in a shed for about 15 of those years) and the guy i bought it off only owned it for a short period. the 2nd owner had it stripped down to a bare shell and resprayed a few years back. there's no rust, the engine is very strong and fresh and it's a delight to drive..
