« on: May 14, 2021, 10:03:57 PM »
Only 60 kilometers on the clock - last V8 off the production line as Fiord AU went to 6 cylinder cars for years - it was used in promotional material and has been sitting around ever since - owner starts it every month, but has never driven it - it has never been registered - Up in Brisbane in a dealership

V8 (302C) and 4 speed manual

Who has the $$$$$$$??  Already has $290,000 as a bid, maybe $750,000

There is money around for this kind of stuff. Fords last FG Falcon GT has been reported as sold for around 1 million. I reckon this XE will go for the very high 6 figures.

The rest of the Grays website is working fine. I guess they had to take the auction down because of too many fake bids or some other issue, if it hasn't sold already.

Ah, looks like you mistakenly copied and pasted an abbreviated web address from another forum. I only quickly searched Falcon and didn't find it because it's under Fairmont. Here's the working link:

They went a bit soon with “last V8” ;D ;D ;D
If you don’t like my comment, ignore it. If you don’t know how to ignore it, message me and I will be only too happy to demonstrate how.

Ended up going for $354,759 + 7.5% buyers premium.

Other notable sales: (+ buyers premium)
$1,057,509 for Brock's personal VK Group A, which I think is an auction record for an Aus car?
$276,009 for an XA GT RPO83 hardtop - barnfind condition
$268,759 for an XC Cobra auto

Almost certain the Group A was purchased by LMCT+, and it will go for charity raffle, as per their two W1 Maloo's, which they paid over $1mil for, each.
