In a LEAGUE of its own .....
And sporting a Black Business Suit is this superbly preserved and Super Rare 1976 XB Falcon 500 in factory onyx black complete with its matching numbers 351 4V T Code, Tailor Made Special Government Order for the NSW Police Force. This vehicle was an unmarked Detective's car on duty overnight only for classified duties and nick named "The Black Beast" Read more in Survivor Car Magazine edition 41..
After decommissioning in May 1978 it was sentimentally purchased by its original driver, who continued to love it as a family car until passing away in 2012.
From then it was proudly passed on to a Private Collector who has also continued with its preservation lovingly whilst keeping it maintained and not restored.
In 2001 it was repainted in its original colour as it is still presents today. Body and paint presents extremely well. Interior is in unrestored condition throughout showing its original wear but still presents well. Original engine I believe has never been removed from the engine bay. Engine and engine bay have never been repainted and maintain factory paint. Auto is its original FMX. The differential does not appear to have been removed from its perch either. It is an LSD 9’’ complete with disc brakes, 5 leaf springs with the original tramp rod set up. It is factory fitted with 16M steering box as well. The vehicle is a Factory plated T Code 351 4V NOT an upgraded K Code as many are. It has all the mandatory upgrades to be expected with a T Code Falcon GT. This car was built for one reason, “to go fast”.
Unlike many other NSW Police cars, this vehicle is complete with its original 2 sets of keys, brass ID tag, log book still with the NSW Police fit out document stapled in it. Original working sirens from 1976, original vinyl floor coverings and many other tell-tale signs of its past life.
It is extremely rare to find a vehicle of any model with this "Undisputed Provenance" unlike many other cars of this era. Ford Verification claims a 1of1 build.
This unique Special Vehicle will suit any serious collector confidently knowing this car is a "Class A" Investment with its History never to be disputed.
An irreplaceable piece of Ford Motor Company partnering with Government in the Australian Motoring History.
This is a very highly regarded and important car to the NSW Police Historic Organisations Registry. It is always referred to as Len Miller’s old car RIP.
