GREEN RestoMod Falcon Down Under (CarScoop)

1967 Ford XR Falcon ZERO'D with 600hp V8 Diesel is Even Greener Than it Looks

Joining the local introductions and even some world premieres like the Lexus LF-LC II at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show in Sydney this October will be a unique muscle car build from the Land Down Under.

Australia is known for its love of muscle cars and has a long tradition in the category with vehicles such as the classic 1970s Ford FalconGTHO Phase III, Holden Monaro and ToranaV8s, and Valliant Charger R/Ts (Chrysler Group), as well as the contemporary offerings from Holden's HSV and Ford's FPV performance divisions.

Now, an Australian has come up with a green muscle car build – and we're not referring to its beautiful, rich exterior shade.

Named the ZERO'D and billed as the "world's first elite eco-friendly custom-built muscle car", the four-door saloon is based on a 1967 Ford XR Falcon. It's the brainchild of Mick Fabar, owner of Green Homes Australia, who wanted to create a muscle car with a green footprint – not only when it came to power, but it's construction as well.
