Ford Falcon/Fairmont XW-XY market review

Concerns expressed in previous Guides about the trashing of genuine XY 351 Fairmonts to create GT replicas seem well founded.

The money being asked for untouched 351s is becoming extreme and comfortably exceeds that achieved by most ‘tributes’. Whether buyers are willing at present to pay more than $100K for 5.8-litre XYs we can’t confirm, but that day cannot be far away.

Untouched XW-XY Fairmonts with the smaller 302 (4.9-litre) V8 are worth $60-70,000 and about the only way to pay less than $50,000 for a factory Falcon V8 of this age, is to buy a ute. 4x4 utilities are also making gains.

Six-cylinder XW-XYs have reached $30,000 and continue to climb, with 4.1-litre Fairmonts at above $40,000.

XW-XY Falcon $25,515 [18]

XW-XY Falcon V8 Sedan/Wagon $55,135 [7]

XW-XY Fairmont $41,030 [14]

XW-XY Fairmont V8 $62,060 [17]

XY Fairmont 351 $99,300 [5]

XW-XY V8 Utility $54,900 [11]

XY 4x4 Utility $42,335 [3]
