The Ford XA-XC market is volatile.

Ford Falcon/Fairmont XA-XC V8 1972-79

One car selling for $60,000+ is likely to inflame the market for 1970s Fairmonts, turning a bubbling pot into roaring inferno.

351-engined Hardtops have for some time been generating significant prices and now the sedans are getting their opportunity.

If you can’t stump up $60K for a two-door or ‘K Code’ sedan, try one of the later XC GXLs which can be found in decent order at less than $30,000.

Basic Falcon V8s cost even less but also have less long-term appeal than a Fairmont. Keep an eye also on movements in the XA-XC van and utility market.

V8 Vans in particular are hard to find and we think a $30,000 average price isn’t representative of the money an excellent 351 van or even a ute might generate.
