    That's my favorite GT Falcon, I don't like the 1970s ones.

    Car looks mint, wouldn't mind adding something like that to my 90s Falcon collection but id be borderline hoarder of 90s Falcons lol.

    Would the owner or person handling enquiries, be interested in putting it up on the "Tickford GT Owners Group" on Facebook? I have been asked to do this, but I feel this not my place, to do this. The owner may object. If the owner or representative is interested, just tell Nettie or Brian, the people that run the Facebook Page, you know of the old hoon from Perth. Greg.

    One of those with an injected 351W would be sweet

    The prob. with the EB GT was that it didnt have the mumbo to match the looks and the badge. In fact I'm pretty sure the ED XR8 Sprint which came along a year later could see it off for around $20K less.

    Another case of Ford could have should have...as mentioned interior is debatable but you could live with it if it got up and went as a GT is expected to.
    Would have had one long ago.
    This example is beautiful to buy, just I'd have to butcher it engine wise which I wouldn't wish to do keeping it original.

    Well ideally, you'd drop a crate motor into it and keep the original in the shed or under lock and key somewhere. So if you do want to sell it later, you can drop the GT donk back in and it is back to original spec.

    People often mention how slow it was, but wasn't it still the fastest ever gt at the time?

    I doubt that. The Phase 3 did the 1/4 in 14.3 seconds. Unless it was top speed overall. The bodykit was designed in the MIRA wind tunnel in Britain so it had the aero for high speeds.

    EBGT:

    ◦Top Speed 228km/h (142mph)
    ◦ 0 - 100km/h (0 - 62mph) 7.3sec
    ◦ Standing 400m (1/4 mile) 15.2sec

    XY GT Phase 3

    Bathurst spec (3.25 diff ratio) Phase 3 was rev limited to 228kph
    0-100 in about 6.2 seconds (diff dependent)
    Standing 400m 14.1 seconds, 3.25 rear end. (depending on which gearbox and diff you ordered, it had 3.5 and 3.9 too)

    Not withstanding the massive advancements in handling, braking and tyre technology the old H3 certainly hauled arse in a straight line, even by todays standards it would frighten a Redline.
    My Falcon family heritage: XY V8 Falcon 500, XYGT, XBGT, XC 351 GS, XD 4.1 Spack, EF wagon, AU Wagon, AU2 Wagon, AU2 XR8, BA XR8, BF XR8, FG XR6, Lucky last: Sprint 8. Oh wait, AU3 XLS Marlin Ute!
