A Ford Falcon that is so rare that only one of its kind has been built is expected to set a new auction record.

The XY-series car was made to measure with a long wheelbase in 1970 for passengers of ferry companies.

Lloyds Auctions said the V8 Falcon with six doors and eight seats is possibly & # 39; the rarest car ever manufactured in Australia & # 39 ;.

& # 39; This Ford XY Falcon Wagon embodies collectability, & # 39; said Lee Hames, chief operating officer of the auctioneer.

& # 39; It is the holy grail for Ford fans, the only one of its kind and it is in excellent condition. & # 39;

The Falcon was made to order for Trans Australia Airlines, then a government company, to transport passengers as a free limousine in Tasmania.

This Victorian Ford is even rarer than three surviving GTHO Phase IV & # 39; s, also based on the XY series Falcon.

Last year, a GTHO Phase III once owned by the legendary Test cricket fast bowler Jeff Thomson was sold for a record amount of $ 1,030,000.

It was also & # 39; the world's fastest four-door sedan when it was built in 1971.

The Falcon car built in September 1970 with a Cleveland 351 V8 engine is even rarer.

Bids for a total of $ 51,000 have been made so far on the car being auctioned on September 30.

It was restored in eight years in the 1990s.

& # 39;The story behind this car is as special as the car itself, & Mr. 39 said.

& # 39; It has won many awards and has been featured in auto magazines all over Australia. It has already received a lot of attention, with questions coming in since it was published online. & # 39;
