Produced in die cast, the model will feature opening doors, hatch, and bonnet. Together with the usual excellent detailing and stunning paintwork, these models should not be missed. It will be set to an exclusive limited edition based on order numbers and will come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity signed by John Bowe.
Produced in high quality sealed body resin, the 1:18 Scale FPV BF MKII GT-P is a finely crafted model. Despite being a sealed body model, the interior detail has been expertly replicated which can clearly be seen through the clear windows and the exterior lines are very sharp. The exterior finishing and colour of this model is a real standout also. The Silhouette paint job and Orange sticker kit work so well together and it will simply be a beautiful collectors model to display.
Overall this FPV BF MKII GT is shaping up to be a real beauty and given it will be produced in a limited edition, it’s one that shouldn’t be missed.
Similar to our 1:18 SS-V Redline and Motorsport models, the Director will be produced in die-cast with fully opening parts featuring, faithfully replicated interior, nicely replicated staggered wheels with road going tyres, photo etched parts, beautifully presented detailing and outstanding finishing all round.
It’s an exceptional model of a car that will one day be considered an absolute classic and one for the history books.
As with all Biante 1:18 scale models, these item will be produced in a limited edition and will come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The VS range also brought with it a new selection of eye-catching metallic paint options like Silver Mink, Panther Mica, and for this particular model, the stunning Cherry Black. This distinct finish at first appears to be a metallic black but on closer inspection, is infused with a burgundy pearl which really makes any VS HSV stand out in the sun, and the model is no different!
The paint isn’t the only special feature about this Senator though. We’ve also added the optional leather interior and 6-speed manual transmission mated to the fire breathing 215i 5.7 litre stroker engine. For anyone who has driven an early HSV with this engine will testify, they did not hang around when the left pedal was planted!
This model features fully opening parts and will come with a numbered certificate in a strictly limited edition.
Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, high details and immaculate finishing, this model will be a limited edition and comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. It’s a must have model for HSV and Australian motoring fans alike.
The XR GT Falcon was released to the public in May 1967. The credibility of the XR was strengthened when it was selected by the New South Wales and Victorian Police as their high speed pursuit vehicle.
Bill Bourke, Ford Australia’s Managing Director at the time, saw the prototype of the XR Falcon V8 police special and decided to develop a production version. This new GT was developed at Ford’s proving ground You Yang in North Melbourne by Ford engineers in conjunction with Harry Firth, a leading driver and race car preparer. Sales success was assured due to a win at Bathurst in 1967 by Harry Firth and Fred Gibson.
The XR GT had well and truly proven itself as a vehicle that offered performance, comfort and safety amongst its features.
The XR Gt was most famously produced in GT Gold paint. Of the 684 manufactured, 671 were gold, the remaining 13 cars were split between 6 colours. Eight of the cars were painted in ‘Gallaher Silver’, to promote the sponsor of the 1967 Bathurst race.
Three cars were delivered to race teams for the Bathurst race, painted in ‘Ivy Green’, ‘Polar White’ and ‘Sultan Maroon’.
The remaining two cars were painted for Ford executives. One went to Bill Bourke, requesting a Russet Bronze version. The last car was painted in Avis White for an unknown executive.
1972 Bathurst Ford XY Falcon Phase III GT-HO Allan Moffat
The 1972 Bathurst was memorable as it was the first time rain had significantly affected the race. It was won by Peter Brock driving a Holden Dealer Team Torana, the first of Brock’s record nine victories.
Brock finished a lap ahead of Queensland racer John French driving a Ford XY Falcon GT-HO Phase III, this despite Brock being penalised one minute at his last pit stop for starting his car while the HDT crew were still re-fueling.
Pole sitter and winner of the previous two Bathurst races, Allan Moffat, had a race he would rather forget.
After dicing for the lead with Brock in the early laps, Moffat spun his Phase III Falcon at Sulman Park on top of the Mountain in wet conditions.
Although he would fight his way back, he would twice be penalised one minute for restarting his car during pit stops before the re-fueling had been completed. Later in the race the Falcon would also encounter brake problems and Moffat dropped back to finish the race in 9th place, 8 laps down on Brock.
