1974 Ford Falcon XB GT 351cu.in. (5.8 ltr.) from Australia and New Zealand
A quality road going race car
Nothing major has occurred
Have had a full repaint (original color)
Drivers seat re-trimmed
General wear items replaced i.e. clutch / brake pads (4 wheel disc's)
Serviced every 10,000 klms.
Last of the 70's GT Falcons some say the last real GT.
Getting more popular now as a collectors item these cars suffered badly at the hands fools in their prime.
They were a quick cheap car and got "thrashed" to death most ending up in wrecking yards.
A good example now fetching upward past $10,000 au. they are set to become part of our Australian Motoring History.
I thank everyone who has rescued a GT or a similar vehicle, oh so many were taken for granted.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I thought the XY GT, was the last of the real GT's!
XB GT, luxurious in the GT tradition? -Yes, but not in the performance stakes.
If you would tell people it was the same car that Mad Max drove I bet you will get it sold in no time.
The reason you can't sell your ute is because it is not a gt ford never made gt utes. It is probably a gs ute witch could be optioned up to nearly gt level when new. I also doubt any one would be willing to pay 30,000 for it.
XB GT are an appreciating classic. Like most people who own one they know what people are paying for the genuine article these days.
Hi, my name is Jack, I have been in the trade for over 25 years, I suppose that makes me old. But it doesn't matter what model GT I have in my workshop at one time, everyone's eyes light up with pure joy just to be near a part of Australian history.
I have rebuilt many GT's over the years for myself and customers. The one gem that I and many have overlooked over the years, is the XB GT. In the last 4 years, I have rebuilt 5 XB GTs from ground up, and consider myself a very lucky person to have helped these poor unsent souls. I have grown to appreciate this model, and think this model is a sleeping giant, as you can now see by their prices.
Good luck to all. And remember, have fun. Not too many people can truly say I own a part of Australian history!
