If the signature design features of the early GTs were reduced to gimmicks that didn't work, the design would lose its honesty.
As a result of his painstaking testing, the work of FPV's suspension engineers and the already highly effective BA Falcon chassis, the new Ford Performance Vehicles GT offers an unprecedented combination of high-performance handling and a startlingly compliant ride.

The success of the XR GT saw rapid development of the XT version released in April 1968 as an ongoing model.
It gained the more powerful 302 V8, a beefy new three-speed auto transmission option, wider 6-inch rims, lower suspension and heavier shockers.

The XW also saw the introduction of the Phase I and II GT-HO homologation models, which were the first local performance cars to feature a full-width front spoiler.
Again, it was the first Australian car to feature standard bonnet locking pins, racing exterior mirror, anti-glare bonnet rally panels, styled fuel cap, separate dual exhausts exiting at each corner, styled 12-slot sports wheels, baggy 70-series radial tyres, long distance fuel tank and large ventilated front disc brakes.

The new GT was also the first full-size Australian family car variation to offer a total performance and appearance package with extra safety including the Mustang 289 V8 with Australias first four barrel carburettor, 4-speed manual gearbox, sports suspension with radial tyres on 5.5 inch rims and steering wheel impact pad, all standard.
Its GT stripes down the sides and across the boot, distinctive GT medallions and grille blackouts caused a sensation when the first GT was released in May 1967 as a limited edition model late in the XR series.
