Ford Falcon/Fairmont XW-XY

Ford XWs and XYs represent the ‘big end’ of the Falcon market, with genuine factory V8s still strongly in demand and with the potential to keep climbing.

Bumping factory 351s and GT Replicas into the Muscle Car survey left us looking just at 302 [4.9-litre] cars. However, not even a reduced sample size could diminish the strong market performance of these Fords.

Buyer's Guide: 1971 Ford Falcon XY GS

Excellent XW or XY Fairmont V8s consistently exceed $55,000, with basic Falcon 500 V8s 40 per cent cheaper. Utes realise good money as well, however a lot that are currently running V8s weren’t built that way.

Six-cylinder Fairmonts have climbed appreciably, however their level of growth may not be sustainable.
