This must be the ultimate Ford Bathurst Set?

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) :
