The Australian public had never seen anything like it before. Out of the blue came a car that broke all the rules. This was not a car for the conservatives. Big and bold with black out bonnets, lairy side stipes, chrome GT badging, a Super roo emblazoned on the front guard, bonnet pins, an air duct and under the bonnet a 351 Cleveland V8. And boy did Ford get the formula right. 2,287 XW GTs were sold by Ford. Nearly 3,000 if you add in the GTHOs. And nothing shouts GT more that the race bred colour known in the Ford vernacular by the paint code F117 or Brambles Red.
