1997 FORD XH II FALCON XR UTE - $49999
The Ford XH Falcon range was introduced as a commercial range of vehicles, supplied in either Ute or Panel Van body styles. Most notably, the XH was the first Falcon utility vehicle to offer a V8 engine option, specifically the 302ci Windsor V8. 4 speed automatics were available as well as a 5 speed manual gearbox. Production ran from 1996 until 1999, where the AU Falcon took the reigns.
This particular December 1997 built XH II Falcon is an XR variant, optioned with the 302ci V8 and a 5-speed floor shift manual gearbox. Interestingly, a Vortech V2 Supercharger has been installed, which provides a signature sound under load. The distinctive sound is also amplified through a set of headers running into a 2" exhaust system. To complete the running gear, an LSD differential distributes power to the rear wheels (use only performance oil). Slotted disk brakes appear at all four corners. A set of pedders lower bushes + sway bar rubbers have been replaced and serviced on the 16th of September 2020.
Finished in Heritage Green, a set of FR-17 2-piece Simmons wheels provide the perfect contrast to the understated exterior. Sealing the immaculate rear tray is a flat top stretch fit tarp, that compliments the body colour. Stepping into the interior, a cloth interior is evident with contrasting leather bolstering. With only 94,500 kilometres on the clock, the car presents beautifully.
Driving just as beautifully as this example looks, it will not last long. Pick up this immaculate ute and make it your cruiser this summer.
