Vince Neville's XB Falcon 500

Vince Neville's 1974 Falcon hardtop originally wore GS livery and came powered by a 302ci and T-bar auto. Fast forward 36 years of continuous ownership and the car now boasts a 427ci Arrow V2 stroker with forged internals. This is backed by a TKO 600 5-speed and the big coupe rides on thoroughly upgraded suspension.

Vince says the car has been back on the road for two years on full rego since its ground-up resto, but that hasn’t stopped him putting plenty of miles on the odometer. In fact, he drove the car up from his home in Melbourne.
