We've taken a wrong turn

Ford xy for sale

Many manufacturers across the globe have commissioned one-off vehicles for their own purposes, and Ford Australia was no different. Eventually, it returned to Australia where it passed through the hands of a number of private owners and underwent a refurbishment in the early 1990s. These would be nothing like what would have been originally fitted to the car back in the early 1970s. While I have questioned whether this car would be considered to be restored or refurbished, I do believe that the interior trim color is probably correct, especially given the original Bronze Wine paint. Speaking of hot weather, the Falcon is equipped with what is claimed to be a very effective air conditioning system, which is a real bonus. The car rolled down the Ford Broadmeadows production line in September of 1970.

Now we get to the crux of why I refer to this as a refurbishment, rather than a restoration. Sorry, we've taken a wrong turn. Occupying the engine bay of the Falcon is a 351ci Cleveland V8 engine, backed by a C4 automatic transmission. You also get power steering and power front disc brakes. Your request has been blocked.

That stereo extends to amplifiers and subwoofers mounted in the cargo area, and those modifications are enough to make me not want to refer to the vehicle as restored. Please visit for more information. The front and rear doors on the Falcon are standard Ford items, while the middle doors were fabricated using sheet-metal from both a front and back door in a bid to keep the car looking as factory original as possible. The conversion work undertaken by Stillwell Ford was first-rate, and the fact that the vehicle underwent an engineering inspection and certification by Queensland Transport in 1995 is an indication of the quality of the modifications. So it is very possible that at this point the Falcon was transporting some pretty high-rollers to the casino.

The White paint looks to be in good condition, and it is little touches such as the extended chrome roof-rack that really catch your eye. Looking inside the Falcon is where I see items which motivate me to refer to the recent work on the Falcon to be a refurbishment, rather than a restoration. Please reference the following incident number so we may assist you with this error. With front bucket seats and a pair of rear benches, the Falcon is capable of seating up to 8 adults, The condition of the upholstery and trim certainly looks really nice, with no rips, tears, or problems to report. There were a number of different interior trim colors available for the Falcon at this point in time, and this one probably offered the best compromise as far as ease of maintenance and resistance to inadvertently cooking its occupants in hot weather.

This is a Falcon with quite a history behind it. Given the fact that this Falcon Station Wagon was originally commissioned by Ford Australia, the claim that it is a genuine Ford model could be considered to be legitimate. It is for this reason that I earlier questioned whether the center console was the original one for this car. One thing that catches my eye for all the wrong reasons, is the wheels that are fitted to the car. After living a very colorful life, it is now being offered for sale.

At this point, the normal practice would have been to scrap the wagon. If so, it is probably the rarest vehicle ever produced by Ford Australia. . . . .
