    It is yes. But the most expensive Australian car is a 1 off HRT 427 Monaro, which was I think a little over $900k.

    Honestly, you're going to wreck a good car by doing it as a GT mock up. I don't understand why every man and his dog that gets there hands on an XW-Y Ford has to do it as a GT mock up. The XW-Y Falcon shape is a nice one that can look really neat when done tastefully, they don't need to be mock ups IMO.

    True but i have allways wanted a xw/xy gt and i dont have the money so a mock up is good enough you can make it identical and the only difference will be jg23 to jg33 on the tag. Im putting the 9 inch out of the xy into the xw aswell as the dash and sell the xy i dont need 2 of them.

    I know I wouldn't pay $5k for a rolling XY shell.

    Back in 2003 I had the opportunity to purchase a Grecian Gold XW GT, all matching numbers, for $16k.

    Kicking myself now.

    my uncle sold his XC GT coupe for like 23k in 2003ish, if he had held it for a few more years would have been more like 60K
