In my job at the Ford Discovery Centre I am lucky enough to find myself looking at copies of old Ford Australia information and today come across this gem from a copy of Modern Motor August 1967 referring to the "New XR GT"
"Interested? By the time you add registration, insurance and maybe a radio (which isn't standard) there is nothing left out of $4000.
But first, of course, you have to find a GT for sale. The original batch of 260 was placed with dealers, and those that weren't wanted by the dealers themselves soon found homes.
Ford are supposed to be putting out another batch - possibly 500 this time, which will make them easier to get. Place your order now though, because they won't last for long - even at $4000."
Ahhh, the good old days eh?
