The XB GT represents the end of an era and is the final chapter in the legendary Ford Falcon GT story. Launched in September 1973, the XB range was restyled with a new split grille, one-piece taillights and some significant mechanical improvements such as the option of four-wheel disc brakes. Having continued the GT lineage with the previous XA, Ford again offered a highperformance version of the new XB, moving away from the fire-breathing XR-XY GTs and pitched instead as a more refined GT for the mature executive. Powered by the 351cubic inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor and developing 300bhp at 5400 rpm, the XB GT certainly wasn’t lacking in grunt and could still turn the quarter mile in 15.8 seconds on its way to a theoretical top speed of 200 km/h. With a choice of four-speed Top Loader or three-speed F.M.X automatic transmissions, the XB GT had a limited-slip differential as standard. The XB GT was again sold in either sedan or hardtop.
Muscle Car Warehouse are super pleased to bring to you this lovely Ford Falcon XB GT. As far as desirability goes this particular example would have to be up the top of the wish list as far as specifications go in the XB range. Finished in hero colour Apollo Blue with matching silver accents. Paintwork presents very well for its age. Keeping with the originality are the original twelve slot wheels and original GT centre caps too. Interior is also all original, from the Chamois coloured seats, original steering wheel and original Super Fringe radio. This Falcon GT was also originally ordered with a host of great options such as power steering, tinted side and rear glass, delete exterior wax and the ever so popular Golde windback sunroof!! Still running its original matching number engine and totally rebuilt to produce in excess of 400hp. Backing that up is a C10 auto transmission with a 3500 convertor and lastly the original disc brake 9” diff with upgraded gear ratios to 3.9. Being built in 1974 means it is also a pre-pollution model as well. The car was originally delivered to Col Paige Ford in Footscray, Victoria and has had three owners and full history is known.
