The XT Falcon range was introduced in March 1968 as a facelifted version of the XR Falcon, which it replaced. The XT featured a revised grille and taillights and improved safety features including split-system brakes, larger tyres, and electrically operated windscreen washers. Standard equipment in the luxury Fairmont models included bucket seats, front disc brakes, a heater/demister, a wood-grain dash, carpet, and courtesy lamps in all four doors. The Fairmont Wagon featured an electrically operated tailgate. The Ford Falcon (XT) is a full-size car that was produced by Ford Australia from 1968 to 1969. It was the second iteration of the second generation of the Falcon and also included the Ford Fairmont (XT)—the luxury-oriented version. An XT Falcon GT driven by Bill Gates and Jim Bertram scored an outright victory in the 1969 Rothmans 12 Hour Classic race for production cars at Surfers Paradise International Raceway on 5 January 1969. A team of three XT Falcon GTs won the Teams prize in the 1968 London-Sydney Marathon, finishing 3rd, 6th and 8th outright.
Ripe for restoration!! Muscle Car Warehouse are super excited to bring to the market this Ford Falcon XT GT “Shed Find.” This car has been unregistered and unused since 1989. This XT is the perfect entry level car into the Falcon GT market and a great base for restoration. The car was sold through Centenery Ford, Brunswick Victoria on the 28th of January 1969. It is also one of 397 XT GTs to be made in G.T Gold and one of only 1415 XTGTs produced altogether. The XT has been painted externally only at some stage of its life, but all other areas are as original and without any modifications. Inside is the standard factory black interior which is all original too with all the original hard to get pieces still intact. Even the factory radio still works as it did when the car left the showroom floor. The body of the car is extremely clean with only very minimal signs of rust and or previous rust repairs or major accidents. Under the bonnet is the original matching number 302 Windsor 4V engine that still hosts most of its original components which is coupled up to the original four speed Top Loader transmission and then finally to the 8 ¾ inch diff. The engine starts and runs extremely well having only travelled a mere 94000 miles. So again, if you are in the market for a great entry level Falcon GT that you can tinker with in the shed this is certainly one to be considered. Now available for inspection by appointment only in our Kogarah facility.
