Read True Blue Phase Three

Hi guys and girls,
I owned a TB Ph 3 in 1973 with 4.11 gears and a hot cam. I sold it because I was afraid my staff would neck themselves in it. I have heard in the last 2 years that only 4 HO's in TB were built? I have asked Gossy and his lads and they say at least 6. Anyone out there who knows of any XY's built TB? Irregardless of HO? Cheers, Ned.

Re: True Blue Phase Three

Only 4 official Phase 4's were built. 3 were red and made for racing, 1 was green with silver stripes and is the only one with road compliance plates. Last seen in Sydney many many years ago.

Of the 3 red ones I know one was used for rallying and at least one of them was written off!

Re: True Blue Phase Three

There were 36 x GT's made in in TB, and 5 x GTHO's

There is also strong exidence to suggest that a Phase 4 coupe was made, plated H.

That would make two "H" plated cars.

Yes, there is rumour of the coupe and some say it was going to be the phase 5 (which ended up being redesignated to the stillborn XD GTHO) however I only stated the known and proven Phase 4's that are in existance.

Re: True Blue Phase Three

Fascinating stuff racer, Thank you very much. If you don't mind me asking, how did you get those figures and what evidence do you have that suggests the coupe ran a H code engine.
Cheers, Ned.

I got the figures from the GT Club.

The H coupe very likely exists, but is yet to be tracked down. It was factory made for an influential Ford Dealer to race.

I have seen the Green Phase 4 in the flesh, and it was more Fairmont than GTHO. The coupe was built purely for the track.

It was the red 4 door rally car that was written off.

I believe so. The GT dvd says that one car was written off after a commodore towing a caravan hit it. One lives in the country somewhere unkown and one is owned by a gold coast electriction (which you see on the dvd)
