Ford XM and XP Falcon
Ford XM Ford Falcon
A Brief History.
The first of the Australian Falcons hit the streets in September 1960. Over the next few decades, this was to mean the end of Holden's hold over the Australian market. It is reported that Ford spent US$30 Million on its first Australian Falcon. The first Falcon coupe was launched in 1964 and was produced for only 2 years (XM and XP). The coupe was not seen again until the launch of the XA Falcon Hardtop in 1972.

The XM Ford Falcon was introduced in 1964. Around 1,500 modifications were made with the launch of the XM. More chrome was added, heavier front end suspension and a new Super Pursuit engine (6 cyl., 200 cubic inch). One of four engine options for the XM. - 0 to 60mph in 11.1 secs. The coupe was heavier than the sedan and mainly used imported body parts.

1965 saw the introduction of the XP Ford Falcon. This is the year of the great durability trial, where 5 cars travelled around the clock for eight days, driving 70,000 miles. This was a world record at the time! The XP had revised front and rear suspension, laminated windscreen option, choice of three-speed automatic transmission or the original two-speed Fordomatic. The XP falcon came out with ten models.
