Ford Falcon XA

The Ford Falcon (XA) is a full-size car that was produced by Ford Australia from 1972 to 1973. It was the first iteration of the third generation of this Australian-made model. Sold between March 1972 and September 1973, the XA series was the first Falcon to be designed (with assistance from Ford’s US headquarters) and manufactured in Australia. It featured an entirely new body which was larger and more roomy than that of its XY series predecessor, giving it the “coke-bottle” look.

Ford Falcon XA GT

Early in 1972 Ford released the XA Falcon with the GT in sedan and hardtop versions. The hardtop being preferred for racing as its bulging rear flanks accommodated wider tyres. The XA GT was designed for wider appeal with its less aggressive look and creature comforts. The XA GTHO Phase IV is the best remembered model that never was. Three prototypes were built at Ford’s “Lot 6” race workshop and one production model made it down the Broadmeadows assembly line before the “Supercar” furore stopped production. The XA GT won at Bathurst in 1973 with Moffat and Ian Geoghegan in the hardtop version, and in 1974 John Goss and Kevin Bartlett in an XA GT Hardtop won the first really wet Bathurst 1000 enduro.

The GT Special, which was called RPO (Regular Production Option) 83, featured certain GTHO Phase 4 bits such as the 780 cfm Holley carburettor and the exhaust headers, but it did not have the camshaft and valve gear modifications of the Phase 4, or the special “finned” sump of that car. The result was a bit of extra power (about 330 bhp at 5400 rpm), most of which came in at the higher rev ranges, but the scope for race development was much greater than the standard GT’s.
