Im going to say this once as ive had sooooo many issues selling stuff on ebay lately.This is an AUCTION / no offers at all and do not wait to see if the buyer doesnt buy it. Highest bidder wins over my reserve.If you win, you pick up the car and you pay me.Serious buyers / collectors only and you can come inspect my ute.
You are looking at my beloved 1970 XY GT hybrid mockup Falcon. Also know as Black Betty.I purchased this car in April 2009 and it did need some work but I loved it so much that it was my daily driver for a full year. In that year i purchased many parts and started adding my own personal touches to it, to make it look like GTHO and made it run better and faster.All was going well till i lost my license. Having a car like this as your daily driver is a bad idea ahaha. Everyday i couldn't resist driving this car like its meant to be driven... ballz to the wall ahahaWhen i lost my license i took it off the road to build it even more and get it spray painted eventually. This spray paint is what it was when i purchased it in 09 nothing special lots of imperfections, just someone's home job. It Never ended up happening because i couldn't decide on midnight black or gun metal grey matt finish. Still cant decide ahaha.One of the things that needed to be done was a new radiator. Being anti electric at the time i tried to source an original gt one but i couldn't.After i got my license back i was driving it around to get work done to it or trying to get very specific parts for it so i could directly conpare and fiddle with it and sadly on one of these journeys it overheated. I suspected engine troubles before overheating anyway as i was having a few other random issues. After it over heating various items immidiatly stopped working and wouldn't run at all. It took me a while to figure it all the issues out, one by one got new parts and it ran but i never drove it not knowing all this time the big end is gone from over heating. So for the last 7 years I've been adding parts starting it pulling it to bits again starting it after i had finished working on it.Litteraly as i was pulling it out the garage on Sunday to wash it, take photos and sell it, the engine is done might be seized i havent tried to crank her again. i feel seriously stupid that all this time ive been working on it and i actually needed to rip it out ahahaIn the 7 years i purchased a full second hand engine meant to be in good condition with loads of cool racing parts on it and again was going to build an a stroker weapon but just never got to it.
This is why im selling it i just dont have the time like i used to and its time to see her go to someone dying to build it up like i once wanted to do 10 years ago.It is a factory V8 body which isnt common and took a photo of the plate for you.I do literally love this car and have some fun memories in it and had serious fun working on it too.Since i purchased it i added the following:Electic fuel pumpHolley 450 double pumperNew plug set and distributer partsReplaced so many old bolts / screws with new stainless or high tensile exact replica bolts / screws.GTHO front skirtGTHO driving lights (never wired them up tho as it was purely for the look ahaha but have the wiring set)GTHO badging the one on the front is 100% original cost me an arm and a leg to getSteering wheel and boss kitRacing seats. The seats that came with it are out of a later model falcon and i hated them with a passion and you get those too ahaha i took a photo of what it looked like with the new and old seats in it.Aluminum radiator and electric fanBraided hosesAluminium Washer bottleAluminium Radiator over flow bottleNew clutch stuffNew break stuffNew air cleanerI installed a tool box on the rear checker plate as there is honestly no space in this car.Brand new batteryOther stuff i cant even remember ahahaThe last photo is of what it was when i purchased it.
What it needs:New engine or the one im providing to be tested and put in itPaint job Like i said it was a crappy home job when i purchased it but no real rust just a few surface rust spots coming through on the bonnetBody work on the rear tailgate (providing new tailgate skin and complete second hand tailgate)Body work on left front guard someone damaged it and did a runner.New handbreak cableNew dash pad New hood liningVarious switches or nobbs missing from the dash.A few random things fabricated like a proper mounting set up for the over flow bottle.Sterio doesmt work dont think there are even speakers in the car! Ahaha I loved the sound of this engine and exhaust that much the entire time i drove it only ever listened to Betty rumble.
