Second-gen hero car

Ford's second-gen Falcon GT-HO, based on the XW platform, had a lot riding on its proverbial shoulders. 

According to our feature celebrating the 50th anniversary of the model: "By the time the main protagonists arrived at Mount Panorama for the 1970 Hardie Ferodo 500, Holden had two wins to Falcon’s one victory with the XR GT in 1967.

"Ford had spared no expense in trying to win Australia’s great race and the Broadmeadows boys figured a more powerful and faster Phase II GT-HO was the weapon needed to win."

Production numbers were tiny at 286.

This Queensland-based 1970 example is said to have recently undergone a high-end restoration. and is priced at $600,000.
