Our kind of poison

The XC Ford Falcon is the third iteration of the third generation of one of Australia’s greatest automotive monikers.

First released in July 1976, the XC Falcon replaced the outgoing XB and stayed in production until March 1979.

Changes made over its predecessor were mostly cosmetic, and included a softer, less aggressive front end as well as a completely redesigned rear window aimed at improving rear visibility.

The XC was made available to customers in a number of different body styles that included a four-door sedan, four-door wagon, two-door hardtop coupe, two-door ute and a two-door panel van.

Power came from either a 3.3lt or 4.1lt inline six-cylinder motor or a 4.9lt or 5.8lt Cleveland bent-eight motor.

The shove from these donks was sent to the XCs rear wheels via either a three or four-speed manual or a three-speed automatic transmission.

This particular XC Falcon is, according to the seller, a one-off ‘Snake Bite’ edition of the XC Falcon Cobra.

The seller adds that the vehicle has been fully restored and, judging from the photos, the vehicle appears to be in very good condition both inside and out.   

The XC Snake Bite is $95,000 and anyone interested in this one-off Aussie muscle car can view the full listing here
