Build number #001, 84,000kms, two-owners from new

The FG-generation FPV GS was introduced in 2009 as a limited edition entry-level model which bridged the gap between the top-spec mainstream XR8, and the GT-badged FPVs.

The model revived the GS name which first debuted on the XW, and endured through much of the X-series Falcons throughout the 70s.

Official build numbers from Ford indicate that 250 sedans were slated for production, and just 75 utes.

FPV’s GS sported the supercharged "Miami" 5.0lt Coyote V8 which yielded 315kW when new – and was essentially a detuned and rev-limited version of the GT’s running gear.

The GS also gained unique charcoal cloth interior trim, GT instrumentation, gear knob and badging, along with premium sound system and dual-zone climate control.

The GS sedan wore a list price of $54,950 when new, while the rarer ute was $5,000 cheaper.

This black sedan, is the first one – serialised as FPV FG GS build no. 0001.

The current sellers are the second owners of the vehicle, and purchased the GS off the original owners in 2011 with 30,000kms on the odometer.

Nine years later, the odometer now reads 84,000kms according to the listing, and shows up to date logbook servicing by an "A1 mechanic".

The car hasn’t been driven in around six months apparently, and lives safely in the shed away from rain, wind and sun.

Unfortunately, the attached photos aren’t spectacular – however this may warrant a look for any passionate FPV collectors out there.

You can find the seller’s contact details within the listing below: the car is based in Queensland and is listed for $31,500.
