Hey Paul congrats. You could have gotten rotw on the engine compartment alone. Nice work. beautiful truck.
08 SD250 2wd 5.4, 93 F450 7.3IDI, 08 4runner, 67 Imperial Crown, 49 Dodge Coronet parts, ask me why.

Yep, definitely a nice 53 Efy, but the engine bay is not kosher.
As xran has already said, it's a pic of a Ford XY GT engine bay, but I think it's a 71 not a 70 model. About mid 1970, Ford Australia went from Windsor to Cleveland 351s, so as that is a clevo, I'd say it's odds on a 71. But why was it used to determine ROTW? Definitely the wrong bay.
The shock/spring towers and engine bay shape, should have been a dead getaway that it wasn't a 53 Efy.
Having said all that though,,, it really is a nice truck. Lottsa work, skun knuckles and dough too Ill bet.
As a past winner, I welcome Paul to the Aussie ROTW club,,,lol.
