Big family cruiser should hold its value

Ford Falcon XY station wagon - today's tempter
Wagons of this age are a bit thin on the ground.

XY-generation Falcons are definitely the flavour of choice out there in the market at th moment, something that's probably influenced by the demand for the Phase III hero car.

Produced from 1970 and lasting for around two years, this series was essentially a cosmetic upgrade from the XW, though some significant improvements were made to the locally-produced six and eight-cylinder powerplants.

The car you see here has what was a popular combination of the 250ci (4.1lt) straight six and a three-speed auto.

What you get is a big tough cruiser that shouldn't be any trouble to live with, so long as the bodywork checks out.

The owner says it's an ex-Gosford museum car and needs a couple of things fixed up to make it 100 per cent.

It's running drum brakes all round and it might be tempting to update that area.

Located in NSW, it's priced at $22,000.
