1970 Ford Falcon 250 C.I.D inline 6 from North America
Basic no frills transportation
Not a lot for what it was. Reconditioned the cylinder heads at about 100,000 miles. Replaced one water pump and alternator. Car rusted out badly on all four doors and trunk lid.
This was a 1970 and a half Falcon, which I believe was similar to the Torino and Fairlane of the same era.
It was a very basic low end model - no power steering or brakes. Parallel parking was a chore to say the least. Plain black vinyl interior (seats, floor, dash etc) made it almost impossible to sit in in the summer heat.
It did what it was meant to do - get you from point A to B. Didn't handle great, and brakes were non power, so stopping left something to be desired. The 6 cylinder engine had adequate power and delivered reasonable mileage (mid 20's highway).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
Review Date: 2nd July, 2011
1970 Ford Falcon XW 3.6 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Big classic 70's beast
Front doors sagging.
Speedo gauge ticks and bounces.
Broken steering column.
Car is a good 70's cruiser, and built like a tank.
Never had a problem mechanically, starts first time every time.
The car is original with whitewall tyres and gets heaps of looks.
There's a bit of rust starting to come through the bottom of the doors, boot and rear quarter panels. Would recommend for a cruise car or a great first car.
