Grand Sport
How To Make Your Own Grand Sport

First, pick your model ... Falcon 500 ... Futura ... or Fairmont Sedan. Then add the GS Option Package, and exciting things happen. Along the side, raking GS Rally Stripes sweep to a GS Insignia. Heavily-chromed GS Full Wheel Covers add to the sporty flavour and show your exuberant mood. Inside, there's a deep-dish 3-Spoke Wood-Grained Sports Steering Wheel with a Full-Circle, Rim-Squeeze Horn and a GS Cockpit Dash that really lets you know what's happening.

You take it from there. Add Bucket Seats and a Sports Console that houses your choice of 4-speed, All-Synchro Manual Shift or T-Bar Automatic. Mustang 5-litre, 220-horsepower V8. 11 1/4 -inch Turbo-cooled Power Disc Brakes. Power Steering. Air-Conditioning. Tinted and Laminated Windscreen. Vinyl Roof. Wide-Oval Radial Tyres that put extra tread on the road, giving your GS an even lower sportier look. Falcon's great list of options stretches on and on. The Falcon you choose can be a luxury car ... sports car ... family fun car ... or a blend of all three, just the way you want it to be.
