The Falcon V8 Supercar is for sale via tender for Manheim.

A V8 SUPERCAR Ford Falcon that formed part of Triple Eight Race Engineering’s debut in the championship is being sold via an online tender process.

The Falcon – chassis number JBMS 005 – is being sold by Manheim via tender here on its website with the tender to close at 11.59pm AEST on June 4, 2021.

Originally built as a BA Falcon by John Briggs Motorsport, the Betta Electrical-liveried car was raced in the 2003 V8 Supercar Championship Series by Paul Radisich under both the Briggs and Triple Eight Race Engineering banners, given the latter purchased the former during the season.

With Triple Eight wheeling out the first generation of its own Falcons in 2004, chassis 005 reverted to show car duties in ’04 before being sold to Howard Racing, who used it in what is now known as the Super2 Series between 2005 and 2007.

The car was then raced by Aaron McGill from late 2008 through to the end of 2012, the long-time privateer upgrading the car to BF Falcon specifications (including the flared front guards compared to the BA Falcon) for 2010.

The car’s last race in period came in McGill’s hands at Sydney Olympic Park in 2012 and it was sold the following year.

It has since been placed in a livery like that used by Triple Eight in 2005-2006, however the chassis never raced in that livery in period.
