1968 FORD FALCON XT GT for sale

Price: $199,990
Ford Falcon XT GT 1968 Genuine car. Certified correct number car, 302 V8 with 4 speed top loader. One of only 1415 built and 1 of 52 with this combination.
When the XT GT arrived in May, 1968, it was obviously a continuation of the theme - although it was available in a greater range of colours, and introduced driving lights to the grille, a feature that was to become a trademark for all subsequent GTs.
Speculation had been rife as to what shape or form the 1968 XT Falcon GT would take after the release of the XT Falcon models earlier that year. There was talk of Ford introducing the massive 390 cu. in. engine, but this was dismissed by most people on the grounds of understeer.
Others believed the existing 4.7 litre V8 was far from fully developed and that the new XT would feature this engine in a higher rate of tune; Racing Car News, for example, predicted twin four-barrel carburettors and 300 bhp. Indeed the engine size was increased, to 302ci (4.9litres), raising power output to 230hp - only 5 bhp more than the XR GT.
The compression ratio was increased to 10.0:1, and a limited slip axle was available to put the power to the ground. There was an increase in the rim width to 6 inches, although 185 x 14 tyres were still fitted. These changes, along with some minor revisions to the suspension (including a front anti-roll bar), made the XT a taughter, but more comfortable drive than its predecessor.
The brake setup from the XR GT was carried over, which meant 11-inch front discs and drum rear brakes, although the XT used a dual hydraulic system. For the first time an automatic transmission was available as an optional extra. With a top gear giving 24.25 miles per hour per 1000 rpm the theoretical maximum speed attainable worked out to be 126 mph at 5,200 rpm, and drivers believed 130 mph would be within reach on the long Conrod Straight at Bathurst.
