GT 351 Boot badge XBGT

I always thought the XB GT had the same badge for all. Being the GT351 decal located under the boot lock.

Now, ive seen one that is like this:

Check this out

Is this a design change by ford or has this guy put a previous or future model badge on his xb coupe.

Looks like he stuck the XA badge on, or that's an XA with XB tail lights.

The chrome bumpers hint to it being an XA.

Looks like the spoiler is also the wrong way around.

I was about to take the controls of an ultra-rare Falcon XB GT 351 coupe (one of only 123 made, of which only a handful are known to be in these here United States of America) and was very much looking forward to it.

Chrome bumpers together with the side protection strips were part of the Ford "Protection Pack" option. I guess it was intended for people who expected to crash into a lot of things :)

As this one is missing the side protector strip it's either had the strip removed or the bumpers are incorrect.

Re: GT 351 Boot badge XBGT

According to some the rearpanel was highlited with Silver instead of black and the bumpers are colourcoded, the badge is incorrect and the wing is the wrong way arround, looks like one of a XYGTHO and did not come from the factory with one unless a special order, you can find the build sheet under the passengerseat under the original carpet, if it is still there and this will tell you all there is to know about the car.
Does not matter if it is not all stricktly correct unless you paid the $$ for it.
