Ford Falcon GTHO Phase 4 test drive
The Falcon GTHO Phase 4 is one of the rarest muscle cars ever built by
Ford. Only 4 were ever made and 3 are beleived to still exist. 3 were
purpose built for production car racing and only one made it through the
production line before the program was cancelled due to the "muscle car
scare" in Australia.
It is to Australia, what the Mustang Boss 429 is to the USA - The
ultimate muscle car.
