XA GT RPO 83 Sedan
One of the most desired of all Aussie Muscle Cars. The RPO 83 was Fords "Top Secret"
Homologation special. After the demise of the Phase 4 project, Ford needed to use up it's supply of high performance race parts, which had to be used on at least 250 publicly sold vehicles. So the XA GT RPO 83 was the car. Although not offically recognised at the time as being anything special, now 33 years on they are finally being regarded in a similar light to the legendary GTHOs, as in spirit at least these RPO 83s are a Phase 4.
Although the homologation special parts varied from car to car, options
