For those who are more into road cars we have two new 1:18 versions of the special “Horn Cars” offered by Sydney dealer McLeod Ford. Our Ford XA Falcon GT Hardtop is being produced in Ultra White, while the later XB Falcon GT Hardtop is in the very 1970s hue of Burnt Orange.
FORD XA FALCON HARDTOP GT McLEOD HORN SPECIAL – ULTRA WHITE
PRODUCED IN COMPOSITE WITH OPENING PARTS AND HIGH DETAIL
Lastly, for Holden fans we offer the following VFII-based models in 1:18 scale. The Holden VFII Commodore SSV Redline will be produced as a sedan in Nitrate (silver) with the Ute versions in Heron (white). The HSV Gen-F2 GTSR will also be in Heron, while the top W1 edition will be Phantom (black).
First up we have Peter Brock’s Holden VL Commodore SS Group A from the 1987 Australian Touring Car Championship in 1:18 scale. While the new VL didn’t see any podiums in 1987, it was a significant car due to Brock’s well-publicised split with the factory and the demise of the Holden Dealer Team. This was the last time he would drive a Holden in the ATCC until 1991.
HOLDEN VS COMMODORE – 1997 SANDOWN WINNER – HRT MURPHY/LOWNDES
B180402J $275 Sandown 500 on the door makes it different to other 1997 Models.
Next up we have the 1997 Sandown 500-winning HRT Holden VS Commodore of Craig Lowndes and Greg Murphy, also in 1:18. After taking out the 1996 ATCC, Lowndes went to try his luck in Europe in 1997, while Murphy became a full-time driver for HRT, coming fourth in the ATCC. The drivers paired up again for the enduros though and while they crashed out of the Primus 1000 Classic at Bathurst, they took out the rain-interrupted Tickford 500 at Sandown.
We also have two classic 1:18 touring cars for Ford fans:
FORD EF FALCON DNF 1995 BATHURST 1000 – GSR #30 – SETON/PARSONS
In 1995 Glenn Seton and David Parsons were leading The Great Race race by 7 seconds and only 10 laps from home when their EF Falcon dropped a valve and limped to a stop near The Cutting. A win would have been particularly serendipitous, as Seton’s father Bo had won the 1965 race and had helped build the engine up.
FORD EF FALCON 1996 BATHURST 1000 – CASTROL ELLERY/LONGHURST #25
The following Ford Falcons have been announced by Authentic Collectables and are being produced in high quality die-cast with detailed interior, opening bonnet and all four doors along with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The 1:43 twinset is Sealed body Diecast with clear Windows.

Golden Fleece was an Australian brand of petroleum products and service stations operated by H.C. Sleigh and Company. A partnership was founded in Melbourne, Australia in 1893 by shipowner and merchant Harold Crofton Sleigh (1867–1933) and manufacturer and shipowner John McIlwraith (1828–1902).
