This car should be amoung the great Fords at Bathurst.

Scott McLaughlin's pole setting Falcon with an amazing time of 2:03.8312.

....and one of the last proper Australian V8's to run at Bathurst. It should be a pretty popular model downunder.

I’m guessing two of these are Code 3s?

No, all three built by Biante.

They are only available in this set. You cannot buy all three seperately!

The Falcon Hardtop is still my favourite local racing Ford and AA did a great job on quite a few of them.

Nice to see another Aussie model find its way to the other side of the world, even if it’s ‘just’ a Ford. I have to admit the coupes were good looking cars and it’s a pity Ford Australia never had the courage to release a replacement for the XA/XB/XC coupes.

I think the '67 Falcon is the most expensive of all of them...it can go for over GBP100.

I hadn't realised the Winterbottom car was worth serious money. Here's a cheap unboxed example if you are interested (happy to help if the seller won't send overseas) :

Firstly, a massive thank you once again to Ian (Jager) who helped me sort out the postage situation to enable me to complete my Bathurst collection:

First up is actually a model i already had but had it stored away until now:
2008 Ford Falcon BF Lowndes Bathurst Got - Classic Carlectables 43662 Winner
Image
Next up is one which Ian helped me to source - it was cheaper buying the 1-2-3 set than it was buying an individual car
2013 Ford Falcon FG Winterbottom Bathurst Got - Classic Carlectables 43668 Winner
Image
Image
Last but definitely not least (and shown previously on the forum) is the Shell Sierra - what a beaut!
89 Ford Sierra RS500 Johnson Bathurst Got - Apex Replicas AR41104 Winner
Image

Ian - as always, top man! I owe you a toohey or two.

Glad these arrived in one piece and you were able to complete your Bathurst collection. The way things are going this year, the new Mustang seems considerably quicker than the old Holdens, so I suspect you may have another Ford to add to the collection in 2019.

I've decided to add a global racing sub-category to my international Ford collection and am thinking about picking up two or three Bathurst cars. Some nice looking examples here.
