Description/extras: Group C XE Falcon in original King George Tavern Livery with compliance plates and racing history including Bathurst, Surfers Paradise Oran Park amongst others, comes complete with cams log book, current historic log book and cams certificate of description. Complete with stone chips from its last race at Bathurst in 1984, this XE Falcon has to be the most original Group C race car in Australia and one which heralded the end of an era for both Australian motorsport and for Ford’s iconic 351ci Cleveland V8.
Built to replace the King George Tavern XD Falcon Joe Moore and Christine Gibson had run at the 1981 Bathurst after that car was badly damaged in a race-stopping incident with Gibson at the wheel (the pair were in sixth place), the XE was a superior build and one which would carry Ford to the end of Group C racing. Moore campaigned the car between 1982 and 1984 in championship series and achieved point-winning positions in the 1984 ATCC. Bathurst history for this car comprises of Moore pairing with Graham Moore in 1982 and ‘83 and with Bob Muir in 1984, all being races in which the car suffered mechanical failures and did not finish. More recently the CAMS logbook for this car has it recorded at events at Queensland Raceway, Morgan Park and Sandown Historic, all in 2004.
