Restored with Dedication: 1972 Ford Falcon XA GT Hardtop

July 20, 2019

Today we have the story of a beautifully restored Calypso Green XA GT Falcon hardtop. It was one of just 41 GT Falcons sold at Metro Ford in Spring Hill, in Brisbane, and 1-of-10 sold nationally with these exact build specifications.

This Falcon hardtop was built in 1972. It has a 5,800cc V8 engine.

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
