XA Falcon GT-HO Phase IV 1972-1973

Early in 1972 Ford released the XA Falcon with the GT in sedan and hardtop versions.

The hardtop being preferred for racing as its bulging rear flanks accommodated

wider tyres. Ford built 1868 sedans from January 1972 to September 1973 and

891 hardtops between July 1972 and September 1973.

The XA GT was designed for wider appeal with its less aggressive look and better creature comforts.

The XA GTHO Phase IV is the best remembered model that never was.

Three prototypes were built at Ford's "Lot 6" race workshop, and one production model made

it down the Broadmeadows assembly line before the "Supercar" furore stopped production.

The only production phase 4 GTHO sedan came down the line in 1973 and was Calypso green,

and prior to that 3 T code XA GT sedans were built as racing prototypes GTHO's in Brambles red.

The Phase IV was to have had 340bhp (255kW) and around 400 ft/lbs of torque and

a reported top speed of around 150mph (240kmh).

The 'normal' GT continued in production and while many race teams made do with their Phase 3 XY's.

The XA GT won at Bathurst in 1973 with Moffat and Ian Geoghegan

in the hardtop version, and in 1974 John Goss and Kevin Bartlett in an

XA GT Hardtop won the first really wet Bathurst 1000 enduro.
