Sandy Mercer from Glasgow, Scotland (Australian Ford Register UK) has provided us with some excellent research on the "Special Market" GTs that went to the UK in the seventies.

This is an XB GT which I photographed at a Custom and American car show in Central Scotland back in 1986 or 87. There are several points of interest to this car. Firstly, it is one of the cars consecutively registered to my old GT (June 1974). Secondly, it is now one of the infamous 'Rusty Scottish Falcons'. And thirdly, it too has the Triumph Dolomite tail-lights.

Sandy spoke to the past owner of this car, who confirms that it was the front one of the two 'Rusty Scottish Falcons' and that it was originally Sky View Blue in colour with a Parchment interior. When checked against photos of the rusty Falcons, it can be seen that this one has the Triumph tail-lights. The other Rusty Falcon was originally white, probably Polar White, with possibly a white interior. The third GT, which was in one of the garages behind the tow cars outdoors, was/is probably Burnt Orange.

Crawfy also told him that 'his' GT had only 33,000 miles on the clock when it was acquired by the owner who left them to rust, and the other one had only done 26,000 miles. As we had both heard, there were apparently 6 hardtops acquired by Trust Ford in Dennistoun/Riddrie, four GTs and two Landau's, and they sat for many years, unsold, in a warehouse in the Glasgow docks. Crawfy recalls going to look at another car being sold by the owner of Blytheswood Motors in 1982, and on being taken to the warehouse seeing this big blue car sitting there, covered in dust.

This is an original "Special Markets" GT. It appears that Ford Australia sold 17 XB GT hardtops with this code in March, 1974, and a further 6 with this code in June, 1974.
