When the management of the Ford Motor Company of Australia approved production of the GT-HO Falcon, never in their wildest dreams would they have envisaged that they, the 1969 XW GT-HO, the 1970 XW GT-HO Phase 2 and the 1971 XY GT-HO Phase 3, would become such icons of the motoring world.
These cars, especially the XY GT-HO Phase 3, have captured the imagination of the Australian motoring enthusiast. Not only are these cars admired by Ford lovers, but they are also appreciated by the rival camps as well.
This carefully constructed book tells the story of the HOs, mainly in pictures, but also through a foreword by John Goss and interviews with leading drivers such as Alan Moffat, Colin Bond, John Goss, Ian and Leo Geoghegan and many more.
