To avoid completely taking over the XR6 Wagon thread, I thought I would start a list of the rarest production Falcons using the collective wisdom (?) of the forum. Might even be edumacational.

To begin with, all nominations must have run down the Ford production line, so no concept cars, show cars, etc. Edit Also let's not get into colours and options so it doesn't get completely out of hand. If you do know of rare or one-off combinations like MaD_WoG, post them!

Starting with the Falcon with the smallest production run, insert your nomination into the list below in the appropriate position. Sorry I don't have exact numbers on a couple of these - that's the reason for the thread!

Number produced
Car
1 GTHO Phase IV (only counting the production car here, the race cars didn't have HO on the compliance plates)
3 FTE TL50 T3
6-10 EB SS
72 FTE TS50 T3 manual
90 FTE TE50 T3 auto
~100 EF XR6 wagon manual
125 ED XR8 Sprint
250 AU2 (3?) XR8 Pursuit 250
265 EB GT
270 EL GT
300 GTHO Phase III
400 XC Cobra (all)
432 XY 4x4 utes
567 XR GT

There must be heaps more, eg Landaus, Squire wagons, John Goss

PS, do you think including the transmission type is fair or not?

I've always wondered exactly how many EF Futuras (Just EF Futura's not XR or GLi) there were made with a factory 5 speed manual, the actual build number that is.

I'm sure thered prbably be a few but its just been something id always wished i could find out.

Bill Bourkes XW 428 Cobra jet WAS produced by Ford Australia, it is the ONLY R-coded(428 Cobra Jet, Ram-air) four door sedan ever made by the factory, it is even stamped on the id tags. There was a write up on it last year in Performance Ford magazine
Here is a thread from last year http://www.fordforums.com/showthread.php?t=49389
