GTHO Once in a lifetime... GTHO PHASE IV Ford Falcon!
This XA GTHO is one of only three race cars made before the Super Car Scare forced Ford to abandon its plans to continue the legend of the GTHO Phase cars and dominate racing in Australia. Built in Ford’s Special Vehicles unit known as ‘Lot 6’ these three Phase IV cars were going to be driven by Allan Moffat and Fred Gibson with one car as a spare. Sadly this never happened.
The rarity of the Phase IV has given the car mythical status and now it sits at the pinnacle of Aussie muscle cars with a legend, a back story, and a value that is unparalleled.
You’ve heard the stories. You’ve seen pictures. This is the reality.
Bathurst 1971. The XY GTHO Phase III dominates qualifying for the The Great Race with eight of the top 10 grid positions wearing the Blue Oval. 130 laps of Mt Panorama later Phase III drivers make it a Ford lockout on the podium with Allan Moffat on the top step. Ford rules Bathurst one again and Falcons fly out of showrooms across Australia.
1972 sees Ford, Holden and Chrysler hell-bent on bringing bigger, better, faster cars to race on Sunday to help sell the road-going equivalents on Monday. The fight is on.
Holden has the LJ Torana but now with a V8. Chrysler looks to the 340ci V8 to boost its Charger and Ford has a brand new model with a more aerodynamic body to slice through the air down Conrod Straight. The ‘Big Three’ are hungry for racing glory and they are putting everything into making the fastest cars they can.
160MPH ‘Super Cars’ Soon screamed the headlines on 25 June 1972. A week later, the Torana XU2 would be a dream, the 340ci Charger would be forgotten and the XA GTHO Phase IV would be dead.
“Bullets on Wheels” was what the secretary for the N.S.W Minister for Transport whispered directly into the ear-hole of a journalist looking for a scoop who spewed the message onto the front page of the daily newspapers. This was ‘The Super Car Scare’ and for better or worse it changed Aussie performance cars forever.
GTHO Phase III 'BIG RED' Breaks Million Dollar Record!
The GTHO Phase III is the holy grail of Aussie Fords with a reputation born on the racetrack and bred on the streets. One of those custodians was legendary Australian fast bowler Jeff Thomson who owned the car for nearly a decade, during which time it gained the nickname ‘Big Red’, which is what the car has been known as ever since.
Saturday June 16 marked a very special day in Bathurst, NSW as the home of Australian Motorsport became the new headquarters of Lloyds Classic Car Auctions. There was an impressive lineup of classics including this GTHO Phase III previously owned by Australian cricket legend and World's fastest bowler, Jeff Thomson. Local radio broadcast live from the event with over a thousand people from the community joining in what was a historic event. Watch some highlights from this incredible trip down memory lane, showing history in the making right in the heart of motor sport racing, Bathurst.
