Remember the 240z was dearer to buy new and faster.


Wasn't the GTHO the fastest production car in the world at the time? Seem to remember one of the GT Falcons of that era was anyway

Fastest 4 door car in production, they are not really fast in today's terms or in sports cars of the time.

142mph 0-60mph 8.4
1/4 mile 14.4
Bathurst lap 2.36.5

I don't think a 180b is that bad either.
Two old blokes, a bit like the muppets!

Some classic rally action. Mr Clark and Mason in their RS1600 escort at the 1972 RAC rally.
Poped up today on the Ford Hetitage channel.

Very sexy car.
Always been a fan of the 710 or 160j. Unfortunately a car we got very few of here.
