The 1971 Hardie-Ferodo 500 Race was one full of action between record breaking lap times and a crash that made Bill Brown almost as famous as winner, Allan Moffat.
After the qualifying round the Ford XY Falcon Phase III GT-HO proved it was the race car to beat. Allan Moffat and his XY was in a class of his own when he secured pole position with a time of 2m 38.9s that was 3 seconds faster than John French who also raced in a factory XY GT-HO Phase III. The weather for the Hardie-Ferodo 500 race had light wind and dust which proved great conditions the XY. Once Moffat gained the lead he didn’t let it go he held first place, not even a pesky cardboard box would make him give up his position for a pit stop to remove the box from his grille.
Moffat completed the Hardie-Ferodo 500 with 130 Laps, fastest lap of 2m 44s and was awarded first place finishing with a record time of 6h 09m 49.5s beating the 1969 record by 22 minutes. Classic Carlectables are proud to present a special Gold Livery Edition of the Ford XY Falcon Phase III GT-HO to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of its 1971 Bathurst victory.
