marks 11 weeks that have passed when Sash
from AN Racing undertook the restoration of
a XY Fairmont and turned it into a classic
Falcon GT replica. From day 1 Sash had developed
a program that would transform this plain
looking vehicle to an all out muscle car that
would be treated with respect. During the
restoration phase the following work was executed.
Installation of a new 393 Windsor 550hp
Installation of a top loader gearbox
Installation of a Hurst Indy shifter with
AN Racing conversion kit
Installation of a new 9 inch Detroit locker
diff with 31 spline axles
New bare metal respray in 2 pack Track Red
Installation of a wind-back sunroof
Complete new interior
New wheels and tyres
New suspension (shocks, sway bars, rubbers
New custom exhaust system

Driving the vehicle to the RTA today we were
met with plenty of thumbs up. Arthur is absolutely
stoked with the result. He now has a 70s muscle
car with plenty of go. The car will now live
next to his dads immaculate low mileage VK
group A SS.
has dedicated his time, energy and expertise
to transform this vehicle into what you see
today. The plan for this car is to attend
plenty of weekend cruising with the boys so
it is more than likely that you will see it
with the Wolfpac brigade.
