A dentist in Sydney has the other one. He won't allow pics or any publicity about the car

Mention is made of it in the Ford GT video which does show the Qld one being driven on the road and it has a half roll cage in it

The cop said "Do you know why I pulled you over". I said " Well, that all depends on how long you have been following me!"

Nope.. One is not at the FDC.. Shame really, it would be a very popular display vehicle.

Well for one thing the Phase 4 was a XA.
Only one went down the line - Stamped GTHO on it's complience plate - Calypso green with white interior. 3 race cars were in various stages of building when the supercar scare hit and these three were off loaded out the back door. One was destroyed in a rally incident but the other two still exist.
Phase 4 was basically an update on the phase 3. Motor - larger sump with windage tray (11pint), 780 holley retained but with larger valves/porting, larger radiator/new designed fan, stronger conrod bolts, new designed headers and a twin point dizzy (6200rpm cutout)
Close ratio gearbox was dropped / overall gearing lengthened with 3.0 to 1 ratio / detroit locker diff, 7x15" Bathurst mags / 60series tyres.
top speed was calculated at around 242 kmh (at 6200rpm) but Marsden said that the engine was good for 7200rpm or around 273 kmh (170mph)
My infos from a magazine The History of the Falcon GT.

Cheers
