One of the most sought after Australian Muscle cars - the limited edition XC Falcon Cobra. A genuine 4.9 Litre V8 and 4 speed manual XC Ford Falcon Cobra #202/400 is presented for sale in stunning condition featuring a quality bare metal respray and an unrestored original interior. For sale from our Sydney Showroom.

The XC Falcon Cobra has certainly earned its place in the Australian history books with the famous 1, 2 win at Bathurst in the capable hands of Allan Moffat and Colin Bond. But it is as a marketing exercise that the XC Falcon Cobra has really excelled. For the first time, Ford offered a limited edition build of only 400. Each car featured an individually numbered plaque located on the dash, sequentially numbered from 1-400. Two hundred XC Cobras were fitted with the 5.8L 351 Cleveland V8 and 200 received the 4.9L 302 Cleveland V8.

With the Cobra build, Ford offered for the first time a designated number of the Cobras that were equipped with automatic or manual gearboxes as well as options including power steering, power windows and factory integrated air conditioning. All Cobras were fitted with dual exhausts, 4 wheel disc brakes, LSD 9" rear end and Option 96 Cobra dress up pack which included front and rear spoilers, painted bumpers and interior and exterior Cobra badging.

For sale is Cobra Build No. 202. One of 370 Cobras known as Option 96 spec, it was built as one of the regular road-going versions, and one of only 100 XC Cobras built with the 302 Cleveland V8 and 4 speed manual gearbox combo. Cobra 202 features the standard Cobra features starting with the GS Rallyee Pack option and adding dual exhausts, 4 wheel disc brakes, LSD 9" rear end and Option 96 Cobra dress up pack which included front and rear spoilers, painted bumpers and interior and exterior Cobra badging.

Cobra # 202 was the subject to a partial restoration between 2002 and 2004. The XC was bare metal resprayed in 2004 and the car comes with a photo album recording the restoration process. The XC also received a full engine rebuild in 2003 with receipt supplied as well as a full suspension and brake system rebuild in 2002. The interior has remained unrestored and is still fitted with the original seat trims, door cards, dash and crash pad, steering wheel, gauges, carpets and hood lining. The interior is in very good condition and everything is working properly. The XC has been fitted with Ford Selectaire airconditioning which is fitted to the car but needs belts and regassing. The Cobra is complete with the Ford Build Sheet, the original owners manual, restoration photo album, receipts and is showing 222,857 Klms on the clock.

Mechanically, the matching numbers 302 Cleveland has been rebuilt and the car still runs and drives beautifully. A receipt is attached in the photo gallery outlining the works completed in the rebuild. The gearbox and diff have been serviced and are in good condition.

This car presents a rare opportunity to purchase a rare manual XC Cobra in extremely good condition throughout. The current owner purchased the Cobra in 2018 from the Gosford Motor Museum and has enjoyed the car on regular club runs and is selling the car to release equity to fund a new industrial property development.

Don't let this opportunity to own one of the most sought after and instantly recognisable Australian Muscle collector cars slip on by.

Currently on club registration. Located in our Sydney Showroom for your inspection. (Ref. 6452)

If you wish we will gladly arrange a video tour of the car using WhatsApp and of course there is no issue with door to door enclosed transport anywhere in Australia or New Zealand.
