Described as a Large car, Ford Falcon (1960–2016) the first true all-Australian Ford Falcon arrived with the XA model in June 1972.
The Falcon had been an Australian automotive icon for most of its 56 years in production, playing a prominent part in Australian life, popular culture and motor racing. Falcons have served as taxis, police cars, family runabouts, transport for tradespeople and have been the winning car many times in the Australian Touring Car Championship and at the annual Bathurst 1000 touring car race, where the Falcon’s reputation for engineering excellence was cemented by the early 1970s through the Falcon GT and GTHO muscle car variants.
