Ford Fairlane ZA

The ZA Fairlane closely followed the XR Falcon onto the market, and for the time was the largest and most luxuriously built Aussie made car - unashamedly based on a US design and using many imported US components, not the least of which was the V8 motor.

In fact, to keep production costs low Ford used many of the smaller car's components, including the drivetrain, suspension and even the doors.

For the first time Australian motorists could choose a non Eurpoean prestige car - and many did! Build quality was high, and durability in Australia's harsh conditions cannot be questioned with the large number of examples still surviving.

The early Fairlane models have remained extremely popular with collectors, and they make a great Sunday boulevard cruiser while being equally at home when used as an every day vehicle.
