actually there was an EA GT, it had a 351 engine and only 1 was ever made, the engine was too cramped inside the engine bay to allow addequite cooling so it wasnt cost effective so they scrapped it.

downingj - you got told!
EA GT is cool - Sieera Cosworth style vents like the Allan Moffat EB's...
I don't think your gunna find a bodykit of it, as I don't think any companies have had access to it to make the moulds and Ford'd keep them locked up!

Yeah sorry, I should have mentioned the 5.8 prototype EA. I've actually got a copy of the Wheels write up on the car / engine combo that Ford built. It was good for 0-100 in 7.8 seconds. A bit soft, considering they "claimed" the thing pumped out 220kw....

Would you believe that the EA GT kit was partly made out of
wood !!!...(the wing I believe) I read this in an article a few years back Anyway apparently Ford ordered the GT to be scrapped , but the car was "hidden" by some of the Ford engineers who worked on the project. It got a little worse for wear until it was rescued and ressurected by some Tafe students and then sent on to be displayed in the Ford museum. Tough looking kit!

I heard through the underground grapevine that the tafe students sneaked off with the bodykit and made a mould of it and then returned the bodykit without anyone knowing, the only copy of this kit is hidden deep in Mt kosiosko and has a team of monkeys protecting it.
