The Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III was built for homologation, looked almost identical to the GT and was a modified version of the Falcon GT built in 1971 with a heavily upgraded engine, a four-speed top-loader gearbox and Detroit locker nine inch differential. It was also equipped with special brakes and handling package, plus a 36 imperial gallons (164 litres) fuel tank.
Winner of the 1971 Bathurst 500, driven by Allan Moffat, the Phase III has been described as “…simply one of the best cars in the world, a true GT that could take on Ferraris and Astons on their own terms…”quote by Sports Car World.
The GTHO’s 351 Cleveland engine output was understated as 300 bhp (224 kW) to satisfy insurers. It is generally accepted to produce in the region of 350-380 bhp (265 kW -283 kW). Initial cars were equipped with an electrical rev limiter which came into effect at 6,150 rpm. With the rev limiter disabled, the engine was reputed to pull in excess of 7,000 rpm, even in fourth gear. At that time the Phase III GTHO was the worlds fastest four-door production car.
Top speed: 228 km/h (142 mph) @ 6150rpm 0 – 60 mph – 8.4 seconds 0 – 100 km – 8.9 seconds Standing 1/4 mile (400m) – 14.4 seconds.
