If you look at the "classic" Fords they are not always the fastest nor the biggest sellers, they are the ones that people like.
e.g. XR GT, XC Cobra, XB GT, EB GT, EL GT all are very popular even though none of them are really fast compared to a VL Turbo or a Skyline.
The T3 is a really great car and I nearly bought one instead of my GTP. Maybe one day if I get rich I will buy one along with all the other stuff I have mentioned (and a P3 GTHO etc.....)
I reckon that the T3 will be worth more in 5 years than it is now.
Here is wisdom.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the BEAST:
for it is the number of a F6 Typhoon; and its number is 0217.
