Late in 1970, Ford replaced the XW range with the new XY range. As with the XW, a GT was also released. By the first half of 1971, a GT-H0, the Phase 3 was delivered. This GT-HO was a true supercar and with a top speed of over 140mph was the fastest four door sedan in the world at the time. Approximately 300 XY GT-HO Phase 3 Falcons were produced.
The Phase 3 comes with the top of the line interior with 140mph speedometer and an 8000rpm tachometer. It also sports the protruding aircleaner scoop in the bonnet famously known as a “shaker”.
