Don't have a 71-73 Mustang but have always liked these cars since first seeing them in 1971. Have the Aussie equivalent in a 1973 and a 1976 Falcon Hardtop that borrow heavily in styling from the American Torino and Mustang. One of the Falcon Hardtops is used for charity runs, or 'bashes' as they are known and that one is the black 1976 XB Falcon Hardtop that has a Mad Max Interceptor theme. The other Falcon Hardtop is in the process of being restored.

This pic is of my Falcon Hardtop Mad Max Interceptor replica.

Welcome! Nice cars, too. Always like the Falcons ever since seeing The Road Warrior. Done some work on a friends Goss Special. Everyone I talked to thought it was a Torino, except the one guy who was convinced it was a fastback Cuda....

Hi Swoopy,

Welcome from Brisbane, just up the road! It would be great for you to eventually own a Mustang at some point. Love the Falcon.

Welcome from Arkansas

Welcome.

I love the Aussie Falcon - no doubt because I loved my 70 GT Torino and my 73 Mach 1.

I am sure there would be quite a few on this side that would trade car for car, Mach 1 for Aussie Falcon.
