I have been told that there were only 25 made? I was also told there were 250 made? Somebody said they were all blue! I thought I had seen them in green? I am 33 and remember when they were new.

Re: XE Falcon "Dick Johnson Grand Prix Turbo"

I scanned in an article from a old Ford magazine for you - says there were 30 built and all were blue, but that dosn't mean its correct I guess?

Re: XE Falcon "Dick Johnson Grand Prix Turbo"

ZH 302 Thank you for the article, I have the exact car. It has Simmons on it now. I will be getting it dyno tuned this Thursday night. The car is still original so I'm not expecting big horspower but we might have a tinker to make it go better. I really appriciate all your help. Cheers Leroy.
