This 1973 Ford Landau is one of just 1,385 built, and is currently held by its fourth owner who has continued to keep excellent maintenance records for the vehicle.
Sold new to a customer in Elizabeth Bay NSW, this example is believed to be a four owner car, and comes with its original owner’s manual, and substantial maintenance records from 53,000 km through to the current mileage which sits at around 132,000 km. Images showing a sample of the records held are included in the image gallery.
The car retains its original Blue paint and vinyl roof. The paint is in presentable condition and polishes up very well, and the vinyl roof is in excellent condition as shown in the images. At some stage the previous owner has fitted aftermarket alloy mag wheels. However, the original factory wheels and hubcaps are included in the sale.
Rocker panels, sills and floors all appear to be in excellent condition. There are only a few rust spots requiring attention. Locations of those areas are shown in the images, and include at the base of the rear windscreen, under a small section of the boot-lid rubber and some small bubbling spots at the base of the passenger door and front guard. The car is otherwise very solid, and has obviously been kept out of the weather throughout its life.
Inside, the white vinyl trim is in excellent condition, including the headlining, and the carpets throughout the car are excellent. The parts missing on the driver’s door (mirror control and handle frame) are included with the car. The rear cigarette lighter in the console does however need replacing. Air-conditioning, and all controls work well, and the dashboard is immaculate.
The car is fitted with its original matching numbers engine – the 351ci Cleveland. A few modifications have been carried out including the installation of Pacemaker extractors, and an FMX transmission with stage 2 shift kit. The diff ratio has also been changed from the factory 2.8:1 to 3.5:1 – however, the original diff comes with the car should a purchaser wish to return the car to original specifications.
These high-spec Australian coupes are becoming increasingly desirable, and with such low build numbers they surely represent a good long term investment. For more information or to arrange an inspection, please contact Richard by clicking the contact seller button above.

Spotted on an old auction website copart.com (already sold), this 1964 Studebaker commander looks like it could do with some attention - plenty of surface rust, we hope someone was able to salvage what's left of it. Looks to be originally painted "Horizon Green" with matching trim.
If you've got a 64 model, add yours to the 1964 Studebaker Daytona register.
This one was spotted on classiccars.com advertised in January 2018 asking $8,500. It appears that it could be a genuine Studebaker Daytona Sports Sedan of 1965 - repainted in an aftermarket lavender, but otherwise looks to be very original. The vinyl roof has obviously been removed - which may have just saved the car from rust! Would love to see it brought back to an original colour and the vybly roof reinstated of course.
Studebaker Daytona hartop spotted for sale in NY - this one has very low mileage and appears to be in excellent condition. Apparently pulled from 15 years storage in October 2017. 3 of the original Bias Ply tires remain. The 4th had been replaced and unable to be located.

This example was advertised on Facebook in 2019, offered for only $500. Terrible condition, and looks to be only good as a parts car, depending on whether the floors are any good. But still relaytively complete and could be used to save another one with a bad body.
Spotted on trademe NZ in January 2019, this one was asking $90,000 NZD - had a fair bot of work done but still in need of some TLC.
At the time of sale, the seller made the following comments: Genuine M635Csi coupe – the greatest evolution of the ‘shark nose”. Only 524 made in RHD. Engine evolved from the M88 engine in the iconic M1. If you are reading this – you probably know the story.
