Ford fans will love this auction

Lloyds Classic, Muscle and Barn Finds auction this Saturday, September 23, is set to be an absolute pearler for anyone who loves cars.

However, fans of Aussie muscle are really spoilt for choice, especially if you’re a Ford fan.

Here are our favourite Blue Oval picks:

1968 Ford Futura XT

1968 Ford Futura XTYou don’t see many of these getting about, and this one looks particularly awesome in Silver Fox factory paint. Under the bonnet you’ll find a bent-eight Windsor donk which is mated to an automatic ‘box. This would be a perfect for cruiser for the weekend.   

1971 Ford XY Fairmont

1971 Ford XY FairmontThis sweet looking Lime Light Green Fairmont comes packing a six-cylinder motor and three-speed automatic transmission and, according to Lloyds, the vehicle is a beautiful example and still retains its original carpet and interior.

1973 Ford XA Falcon GT

1973 Ford XA Falcon GTLloyds reckon that this ’73 XA GT is the best example they’ve seen in ages, and judging from the photos, we’re inclined to agree. Finished in factory and aptly named Jewel Green, this matching numbers GT has a mere 41,313 miles on the clock from new and comes equipped with the 351ci V8 and three-speed automatic transmission.

1974 Ford XB Falcon GT

1974 Ford XB Falcon GTThis ’74 XB looks absolutely awesome in factory Emerald Fire Metallic, and it’s probably our pick of the bunch thanks to a great drivetrain combo of 351ci Cleveland V8 and four-speed manual transmission. In addition, Lloyds say that it’s a matching numbers vehicle and it’s even got a factory sunroof, how good is that?!
