FORD FALCON/FUTURA/FAIRMONT

4-door 6-seater saloon/estate.

Big Australian-built/US-designed range, well suited to outback conditions. Same basic chassis as USA Falcon on 111ins wheelbase, with conventional Detroit-style chassis, front discs and all. Automatic transmission, power steering, and all usual luxury fittings, but only real merit was stowage space and accommodation, though 230bhp and 105mph top speed had some charm.
