You should start reading Australian Muscle Car (AMC)Magazine. This mag re-visits all the muscle cars of yester year and is very informative. In one of their early editions I'm sure they talked about an XT coupe that was built on the American design. Not many were made and they didn't take off.
AMC issue 8 (Cobra on front cover) in the mail section Keith Taylor from SA sent in an article he photocopied from 'Australian Hot Rod' August 1971 about an XR GT 'hatchback'. This was a modified XR Falcon but the concept was certainly different and would turn a few heads today. As for them being a factory option, who knows. There didn't seem to be too many restrictions back then.
