FORD FAIRLANE 500

4-door 6-seater saloon.

Biggest and plushest of all Australian Fords of the period, with larger engine and modified styling for '73. Like Henry's other Aussie cars, had conventional unit-construction shell, coil spring front end, power assistant for everything, automatic transmission, et al. Fairlane on 116ins wheelbase gave more passenger space all round, with flowing lines, reminiscent of Cortina MkII in a way, and room to lounge. Very few sold in UK when new, and how many survive today?
