Ford Falcon with last Australian-made V8 heads to auction again

Posted 1 year ago by CarTorque Club

The last Ford Falcon to be built with an Australian-built V8 is set to be auctioned for the second time in less than two years – but will it overtake its previous result of $355,000?

In May 2021, this Ford Falcon XE ESP V8 was sold for $354,759 in a Grays Online auction – not including a 7.5 per cent auction fee.

The historic Ford Falcon – a Ford Fairmont Ghia ESP by its formal name – was the last to be built with an Australian-made ‘Cleveland’ V8 engine, and was fitted with a gold plaque on its dashboard documenting its significance.

When it sold last year, its odometer had recorded just 60km since it rolled off the Broadmeadows production line on 25 November 1982.
