Allan Moffat, in conjunction with Shannons, will auction book No.1 of the '1971 Ford Falcon XY GTHO Phase III Register' proudly donated by Allan Moffat in support of raising dementia awareness, with all proceeds going to Dementia Australia.

This book represents 50 years of Falcon XY GTHO Phase III history painstakingly researched with many never-before-seen period photographs, the complete factory production build list, with detailed documentation on each individually numbered car, well-written by passionate GTHO Historian; Ross Vasse, this is the definitive book on the iconic 1971 Ford Falcon XY GTHO Phase III colloquially known as the ‘GTHO Bible’.

Filled with information known previously only to insiders, mysteries are solved, myths busted, and secrets revealed. Inside you’ll find a detailed history on every specific GTHO built, and their story of survival told. Includes how many are left, how many were stolen, how many were crashed or written-off, how many were raced, and how many are still missing in action.

Also included are which Ford dealerships sold which GTHO Phase III, unusual build anomalies and one-offs, decades of value trends, and first-hand ‘memory lane’ accounts from original owners. This is the most comprehensive work ever completed, one that tells the story of the fastest four-door production sedan in the world, about the men who created, built, drove and raced them when they were new.

And just like the mighty Falcon GTHO Phase III, only 300 individually numbered copies of this book were printed, making book No.1 a sound investment sure to appreciate over time, whilst at the same time all proceeds from this auction helping to raise dementia awareness.

“This book has been a labour of love, and its endearing to know the auction proceeds from the first copy are being donated to help raise awareness to a good cause.”Ross Vasse (Author; The 1971 Ford Falcon XY GTHO Phase III Register)
