FORD XW FAL­CON GT-HO PHASE II

STARLIGHT BLUE

Australian Muscle Car - - Editor’s Induction -

In 1970 Ford pro­duced a new XW range of ve­hi­cles. They had a GT and with their de­sire to win at Bathurst, again re­leased a GT-HO model - the Phase II, of which ap­prox­i­mately 400 were pro­duced. The Phase II XW GT-HO had a top of the line in­te­rior with a cen­tre con­sole, sports steer­ing wheel and dash, ra­dio, floor mats, door sill plates and door trims with wood­grain and chrome ac­cents. From the out­side, the Phase II looked very sim­i­lar to the pre­vi­ous XW, ex­cept this Phase II had 14x6” wide 5 slot rims with chrome hub­caps. Me­chan­i­cally, the XW Phase II was a to­tally dif­fer­ent car from its pre­de­ces­sor. The trusty Wind­sor en­gine was re­placed by the new 351 cu­bic inch Cleve­land.
