Wayne never stopped trying to convince Ford to bring back the GTHO so did a concept drawing for an EA 351 that would hopefully become a GTHO Phase 7. It was too wild for their liking so he then got the go-ahead for a stripped back version. They still didn’t go for it so HO Phase Autos built this in small numbers (with engine upgrades). Ford did end up bringing back the GT for the EB but left the HO out (not at the request of Wayne).
