The JBA Falcon debuted in 1982, with the first model being called The Roadster. Reminiscent of the 1930's roadsters and built with the same integrity, using an all aluminium body, doors and rear sloping section to encase the petrol tank. The JBA Falcon Roadster sported fibreglass wings and a vertical windscreen and is still viewed today as the ‘original’ JBA Falcon. In contrast to more modern JBA models, the JBA Falcon Roadster was based on the Ford Cortina and was factory fitted with either a standard Ford engine, a Ford V6, or a Rover V8.
This Falcon was completed in 1991 by the one and only keeper of the JBA and is offered today from a deceased estate. Fitted with the running gear from a Ford Cortina, utilising a 2.0-litre straight-four overhead-cam engine running twin weber carburettors, and is mated to the four-speed manual transmission. Attractively finished in Green and Black paintwork with Beige interior upholstery, the JBA shows a recorded mileage of just 4,963 post-completion miles (at time of consignment).
Understood to have spent approximately ten years off the road before being subject to engine fettling to allow the JBA to run again this year, ‘Q471 GCM’ will require further recommissioning before being ready for road use. Supplied a current V5C and invoices relating to the work completed earlier in the year. With tried and tested running gear, this Falcon offers stylish motoring. Not often seen on the roads, the JBA Falcon will always be a talking point.
