Ford Sprint/Fairlane Compact/Ranchero 1962-78

These, apart from the Compact Fairlane, are US-market Fords which Australia rarely saw as new cars. As such, most in the market are relatively recent arrivals and likely to have remained LHD.

Falcon Sprints might have seen their day as front-running Historic race cars but they are still an interesting alternative as hobby vehicles to the very common Mustang.

The Fairlane GT shares its looks and some panels with local ZA-ZB Fairlanes and only costs $10,000 more. You will also pay about $35,000 for a 351-engined Torino which is significantly below the current cost of a similar-looking XA Falcon hardtop.

The Ranchero pickups are mostly recent arrivals, based on mid-sized Ford passenger models and sell for under $25,000.

Falcon Sprint V8 1963-66 $37,365 [8]
