The Ford Falcon range commenced production in Australia in 1960 with the XK Falcon. Just two years later, over 100,000 Falcons had been produced.

In 1965 the XP Falcon was released and ran in a durability trial that saw five XPs race around the clock for nine days over a rough and twisting dirt track that was four kilometers long. The average  speed recorded was 112.7 kmph and Henry Ford II flew in especially for the event.  The trial established 49 Australian endurance records and established Ford as a manufacturer of tough family cars in Australia.

The XP was the first Australian car to win the Wheels “Car of the Year” award.

The Fairmont was the pinnacle of the model run with a classy upgraded trim, reclining bucket seats, front power assisted disc brakes and 14 inch wheels.

Regarded by many as the most collectable of the early Falcons.


Finished in sparkling Metallic Champagne, this example of the top-of-the range Falcon is in excellent condition

Apart from the gleaming paint, the interior has been finished to a very high standard with Bone coloured seats, reclining buckets in the front and a bench seat with arm rest in the rear and Camel colour carpets.

This car was delivered from Beck Motors in North Geelong, Victoria. The original dealer sticker still adorns the rear window.

It is suspected as being a dealer demonstrator as its first owner was a Mr Bernie Beck when it had approximately 1,000 Miles on the clock.

When the car was approximately two years old it went back to the Ford Dealer for a new water pump. The dealer mechanic installed a long bolt in a short hole and damaged the original engine block. As compensation ,the dealer fitted a reconditioned 221 CI engine to replace the original 200CI engine.

The more powerful unit ensures an effortless drive and the engine runs like it just came out of the factory. The original factory fitted Borg Warner 35 transmission shifts smoothly works well with no issues.

The first owner held the car right up to 2018 when it was sold to another Victorian owner who undertook extensive work on the vehicle to bring it up to its current condition.

Apart from the paint, it was re-trimmed by Nigel Finlayson in Victoria and fitted with new hood lining, carpets, seat covers,  colour matched seatbelts  and rubbers throughout.

The original radio is fitted and is in working order, the heater has been reconditioned and works well, the vent doors which flood the car with cool air while moving are in good order and working well.

All door handles and fittings within the car and external to the car are in good condition. The wheels currently fitted to the car are the original 1960’s Magnums made by Sampson Engineering in Adelaide and the tyres are as new

One of the special factory features of the Fairmont was a pedal actuated windscreen washer system, which has been repaired to good working condition. To find one of these systems in working condition is extremely rare.

The brakes have been fully rebuilt and are factory with power boosted discs on the front and drums on the rear. The front suspension has been fully reconditioned with all new bushes and associated parts, the front shock absorbers are new gas units and the rears are the new air bag type.

The original Victorian number plates are available with the car.

The car comes with the original hub caps (in average condition) and an original steering wheel and horn rim.

Currently on historic SA club registration.

An extremely well presented and classy Aussie cruiser.
