The South African Ford Fairmont GT was built from 1970 to 1973. It was CKD version of the Australian XW Falcon GT. Components were shipped to the Port Elizabeth Ford assembly plant where they were assembled. Ford South African knew the Fairmont GT would be an instant favorite and decided to brand the car as Fairmont’s instead of the Australian named falcons. Nicknamed “the super rhino” only 239 of the XW GTs and 1585 of the XY GTs were built during this period, making this car very rare today. This 1972 GT is a legend one brute of a machine, powered by its big 351 ci V8 ram intake engine pushing out roughly 224 kw of power to the rear wheels. A proudly South African Muscle car, numbers on the shock tower vin tag, and tag under the seat all match confirming that this is a genuine Ford Fairmont XY GT. This car is in excellent running condition and has gone through a complete service and recommissioning through Rally Sports Motors.
