1965 FORD FALCON XP - $59999
The Falcon XP was introduced in 1965 with a short production run until 1966. It was the last
model of the first generation Falcons whereby the XR was Introduced. Subtle styling cues
externally distinguish the XP from the predecessor XM Falcon, but the significant change was
centred around a stronger steel sub frame, increasing structural rigidity.
This example is a Falcon XP sedan, leaving Ford’s Broadmeadows production line in June of
1955. It is believed that this XP left the factory as a bench seat, 6-cylinder car, but has since
then had some modifications. The ‘Silver Blue’ paint presents beautifully as well as the
accompanying chrome and stainless highlights throughout. The original hubcaps have been
replaced with a set of colour matched ‘Performance Wheels Superlite’ in the 14” variety.
The interior features a very subtle set of black vinyl seats as well as an ivory XM steering
wheel. A contemporary dash cluster delivers all the diving vitals such as RPM, coolant
temperature and oil pressure. New inner and outer door handles have been previously
installed as well as 10mm of floor sound proofing.
The example now presents a 302ci V8 Windsor, mated to a borg warner 4-speed manual
transmission and a mustang 8” differential to the rear. Additionally, this XP previously
received new brakes front and rear, exchange VH40 booster, new front suspension including
upper and lower control arms, new 16 gallon fuel tank and sender and new 3-core aluminium
radiator. This XP also has compliance in South Australia to legally have the 302ci [4.9 Litre]
Windsor fitted to the vehicle.
If you’re in the market for a stout, little XP for some summer cruising, look no further than this
example. While the second generation Falcon’s pull big numbers, this XP presents great
