FPV’s eBay auction of two of the final GT-F’s have collectively sold for a record AUD$393,700 ! This is good news for FPV, the Falcon line that ends with a tribute to the ’70’s legendary 351 GTHO Falcon and of course to the National Breast Cancer Foundation who was the beneficiary of the auction.
Offered for eBay auction were build numbers 001 and 500 of the final FPV GT sedan series and received 84 and 106 bids respectively.
Car build #001, also known as ‘GTF 001’ for it’s Victorian registration, has been available to motorsport media as the test drive car and therefore appeared in motorsport magazines. It finally sold for $157,600 to a Perth resident.
Car build #500 being the last of the series, has not yet been built and was perhaps therefore more the favorite for buyers who wanted to choose the final build options themselves. Car 500 was significantly higher than the #001 figure with a final bid of closing at $236,100 to a lucky successful bidder in the car’s hometown of Victoria.
“Given the historical significance of both cars, we expected to raise considerable funds for NBCF and I am thrilled with the final result,” Ford Australia President and CEO, Bob Graziano, said.
“Both Ford and the NBCF are focused on the importance of investing in research and development and the innovations those programs can achieve.”
“The auctioning off of these two iconic vehicles, built by our passionate and dedicated Australian team will provide necessary support to the NBCF to fund their equally passionate researchers in their bid to achieve a future of zero deaths from breast cancer in 2030.”
Congrats to FPV and the NBCF.
