I first picked this car up from a Pakenham backyard in 1994 for my mate. He had it in his garage moving from hose to house for 15 years. He did some minor restoration work during this time, which will all need to be done again. He then passed away tragically and the car was take to a farm where it stayed in a paddock for about 3 years. I then got the car off my mates kids in Nov 2017. The car need a full restoration.

A previous owner has fitted the GT tags and shock tower to a Green 6 cyl shell. This vehicle has been rebodied and carries NO value of a genuine GT. It was sold late Jan 2019 for $14,000 as an XB Coupe with some GT parts, suitable for parts or major restoration. It was then readvertised several days later by a Glen Randall from QLD for $37,500 as a genuine GT (see pics). Buyer beware this is fraud.

History relatively unknown, I purchased this car in April 2017 off the father of the owner who had passed away, he had planned on doing a restoration on it but only got as far as disassembling it, the car was sitting under a tree on a property in Mooloolabah Qld and at some point the car has been through a flood (mud throughout the car, engine full of water etc), original copper bronze car but has been painted blue at some point in its life, i've since cleaned it up, got it running etc and tucked it away in my shed as a future project

71 - Super Fringe Deluxe Push Button Radio
Production Figures: My letter doesn't specify this info (I received it in 2005). Am currently obtaining an updated letter with more info like selling dealer etc. Dealer/Owner Options:
The car had been in Emerald, Qld (my hometown) since the mid-1980's and had two owners in this time (tyring to find out its history before then as well). I bought it in December 2000 as a shell with suspension and not much else for $650 and began a complete resto, doing as much of the work as possible myself. Due to budget and time restraints the rebuild took approx. 13 years and now the car is on club rego, driven to shows and drive days etc mostly around my local area. I rebuilt it in a 1970's street car style using all Ford parts (mostly XB and XC) as I have always favoured that look. I fitted a XC Fairmont dash (seemed like a good idea at the time!) because the previous owner had modified the original XB dash in a way I didn't like and I had a perfect XC one at the time. If I had to start again I'd find an XB GS dash, and repaint the car next time in its original Deep Aqua, but no plans to do that as I love the way it looks now in black. The cars original compliance plates were lost during a full paint job by the previous owner in the '90's, so when I registered it I supplied an old rego certificate from previous owner, a stat declaration of why the plates weren't on it and my verification letter from Ford. The rego officer also visually checked the chassis number on the shock tower and under Qld Transport rules, the car is now legally registered. I would love to know any additional info on the cars history if anyone out there knows it.

It was an import to the United States. I've always wanted one and when the opportunity presented itself I couldn't help myself. I hear there's around 100 here and I'm proud to say I'm one of those 100 owners! I've had people stop on my neighborhood street and ask about it even though it's stationary in the garage at the moment. That's how unique it is. There's not a ton of rust on it that I can see, a bit on the rear, but nothing that's a deal breaker. I'm dying to get it on the road just so I can feel it under my rear. I haven't started the motor yet, but that was mostly due to the fact that I couldn't even get the bonnet open. It's open now though so work is about to get underway.
