The XA tail lights and mustang bonnet scoop are a nice finishing touch for a GT

That's Reed Herman's XB. He is a friend of mine and has put the car up for sale. He has US$55,000+ in the car and I believe the current asking price is about US$30K. He had a set of 17" & 18" Simmons wheels built for the car but sold them to me. The XB is pretty wicked.

Just like the Bill Brown 428 powered XWGT: Fitted after manufacture in the states...

Would it be worth big bucks if it was built for the Ford Australia MD???

That aside im not sure how accurate the stories are about this car....

You can't begin to imagine how much attention these cars draw over here. Mustangs are much more common in Australia than Falcons are over here. When you figure that there are only around 100 in the US/Canada and there are around 340 million people that live in these 2 countries it makes these stand out at any car show or cruise night.
