A little while ago there was a thread floating around regarding a sighting of a possible GTP wagon. Well, at the recent Rally of Melbourne i was attending, i got chatting to one of the guys that was in our little group of supporters. We got chatting about Fords and he told me about how he and his brother had built up a GTP Wagon!
They started off with base XT wagon, and from there, completely re-did the interior to GT spec, including purchasing all the leather seats, dash, door trims - the lot.
They also changed the front headlight, bumper and spoiler assemblies to match a GT front end, bought a set of GT wheels, and the sticker kits, and from memory even did the brake upgrade. It was also lowered to look the part.
Mechanically, all they did was add a chip, which apparently boosted power to about 202kW.
Driving it around they continually get offers to buy it, and also get guys coming up to them wanting to know if its the real deal.
It put 'em about 18 grand out of pocket, but what they're saying is that its a one of a kind!!!
