1973 FORD FALCON XB/GT COUPE

Production of the Ford Falcon in America may have halted in 1970, but it continued strong in Australia up until 2016. You may recall the iconic 1973 Ford Falcon XB/GT Coupe from the movie Mad Max, in which it was fitted with a supercharger and, consequently, [“600 horses of fuel injected vengeance”]. You can still buy one of these and have it shipped to the U.S. for nearly $20,000, which shouldn’t be an issue legally since its 351 Cleveland engine was sold in the U.S. That means it could make a lot of horsepower as it’s part of a bigger block family than the 351 Windsor.

1971 MUSTANG BOSS 531

For one year Ford made the Mustang Boss 351, which like the Falcon also had the Cleveland V8. More common are the Boss 302 Mustangs which were made between 1969-1970. Boss Mustangs were made to compete in Sports Car Club of America’s (SCCA) Trans-AM series, and thus were offered with not just a racing-inspired engine but also handling and aerodynamics packages. If you can find the Boss 351, one of the rarest production Mustangs to ever exist, it’ll cost you somewhere around $80,000.
