Ford XT GT Falcon Jet Black

18730 $285
Preorder 1/18

The launch of the XT GT in March 1968 kept the Aussie Muscle car alive. The XT GT was made even more potent and attractive in a range of colours. The XT was to be Ford’s answer to the Holden’s two door coupe, the Monaro. The two would fight it out at Bathurst.

Classic Carlectables have produced this stunning model with opening parts. This is one not to be missed by any Ford fan.

Holden FC Special Cape Ivory over India Ivory

18729 $285

The FC Holden was released in May 1958 and was a huge success and held 50% market share of car sales in Australia. Classic Carlectables have captured the classy rolling lines of the FC body shape. Fully detailed inside and out, this one is sure to impress in your collection.

 

 

Ford Mustang GT 1985 Bathurst Johnson/Perkins

The model number is 18715 and it is priced at $270.

Grab one now as they are limited to 750 and we only have a couple left.

In 1984 Dick Johnson envisioned the Ford Mustang GT as a car that could be competitive under the new Group A racing rules scheduled for 1985. He tracked down two in Germany and took them back to his Queensland workshops for an engine rebuild and thorough race fitout.
Although Johnson described the car as one of the best handling and braking cars he has ever driven, the lack of engine power meant that during the 1985 ATCC season the car was not as competitive as he’d hoped.
After qualifying 3rd for the 1985 Bathurst 1000, Dick Johnson and Larry Perkins finished seventh in their Palmer Tube Mills Ford Mustang GT, four laps down from the winning John Goss Jaguar XJ-S.
“The Mustang was a great little car. It’s just unfortunate the power-to-weight ratio was not the most desirable, but the handling, braking and stability was superb. It was a damn good car…” – Dick Johnson.

Early in 1972 Ford released the XA GT Falcon in sedan and hardtop versions. It was the first Falcon to be totally designed by Australians as production of the Falcon in the US had ceased some 18 months earlier. The XA was the biggest Falcon yet, with the boldest styling, designed for wider appeal with its less aggressive look and creature comforts.

1970 Bathurst Winning Ford XW Falcon #64E Allan Moffat Gold Livery 50th Anniversary Edition

Preorders close 22nd September and a phone number must be supplied.

Highly detailed interior & exterior
Opening bonnet, boot & doors
Poseable front tires
Limited edition
Numbered certificate of authenticity
For the 1970 Bathurst race it was the first time drivers could nominate to drive the entire race distance without a co-driver. The number one driver was Allan Moffat who was to drive solo, as allowed by the new rules. Moffat was the fastest in qualifying with a lap time of 2m 49.3s – good enough for pole position for Sunday’s race. When the starter’s flag dropped, it was Allan Moffat in first position going up Mountain Straight. At the end of Conrod Straight, Colin Bond’s XU-1 Torana outbraked the GT-HO of Moffat and went into the lead. Moffat would regain the lead on lap five. After the first round of pit stops, Moffat was in the lead and by the second round of pit stops he was still leading. Nearing the end of the race, Bruce McPhee was closing in on Moffat who was slowing, but could only hope for second position. Moffat was to greet the chequered flag in first outright, after 130 laps, to become the first driver to win the event without a co-driver.

In honour of Triple Eight Race Engineering becoming the first team in Australian Touring Car and Supercars Championship history to win 200 races, V8 Sleuth is proud to release a limited edition collector’s print celebrating the team’s history-making milestone.

Signed by Jamie Whincup, Craig Lowndes and Shane van Gisbergen, this print is a must-have piece of memorabilia.

At least one of these drivers has been involved in all 200 race wins for Triple Eight dating back to the first scored by Lowndes at Eastern Creek in 2005.

This mammoth print – measuring 1 metre wide – is officially endorsed by Triple Eight Race Engineering and features each of the individual cars that have contributed to the 200 race wins.

The identifying chassis number and number of wins each car has contributed to the 200 win tally is also included on this incredible print.

This print measures 1000mm x 590mm printed on 250gsm matte paper featuring Pantone Gold Metallic inks for a very special finish.

Only a limited edition run of these prints will be produced (the final number will be determined by pre-orders) with each to be hand-signed by the three drivers.

This is an amazing collector’s print for Triple Eight, Lowndes, Whincup and van Gisbergen fans, celebrating an incredible feat in the sport’s history.
