1969 FORD FALCON XW GT-HO PHASE 1 - $305000


The XW was introduced in 1969, replacing the XT Falcon. Almost all-exterior bodywork was
restyled, with an interior redesign undertaken. Falcon, Futura and Fairmont models were
marketed, while the XW GT-HO remains the most sought after. The iconic 351ci V8 was
designated to the GT-HOs as well as a limited production run of over 600 units.

This particular example is a genuine 1969 Ford Falcon XW GT-HO Phase 1 finished in the
subtly gorgeous ‘Grecian Gold’ with iconic satin black GT highlights. This XW was subject to
an older concourse style restoration, with paint completed in the early 2000s and has been
well maintained, garaged and hardly used since. Iconic XW GT detailing such as the front
splitter, 12-slot wheels, ‘351 GT’ badging, single bonnet scoop, bonnet pins and quad
headlights to name a few are evident and present well. Additions such as the mesh headlight
covers, bumper overrides and black rear window venetians add to the period correct look of
this XW GT-HO.

The black interior is original and unrestored, presenting in almost as new condition including
carpets. The distinguishing ‘351’ centre console, Toploader gear shifter and woodgrain GT
steering wheel present beautifully. The boot mats and carpet are all original items as well as
the original ‘Aqua Jet’ spare. One will notice that an air conditioning system has been fitted to
this XW GT. The under bonnet equipment for this system is factory correct, however a period
correct, after market unit has been utilised in the interior. At the new owners request, the AC
system can be professionally removed.

This XW GT-HO runs the 351ci Windsor V8, Toploader manual gearbox and 9-inch
differential combination, synonymous with GTs of this period. Mechanically, this XW GT has
been fully rebuilt and performs very well. However, during the earlier stages of it’s live, the
matching numbers Windsor block was removed and replaced with a period correct, non-
matching numbers Windsor block. This XW still retains HO specific equipment such as the
aluminium ‘Buddy Bar’ intake and factory Holley carburettor to name a few.

Additionally, it is believed this was an Adelaide sold car from new by Davitt Ford, first
registered in 1970. It then moved to Broken Hill where by it currently has NSW registration.
The original books are still with the current owner and vehicle.

With desirability at an all time high, take the opportunity to secure this truly beautiful and
iconic genuine XW GT-HO Phase 1 and enjoy being behind the wheel of one of Australia’s
muscle car heros!
