What a classic!

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

Released in February of 1964, the XM replaced the outgoing XL Falcon, and stayed in production until February of 1965.

The XM was a comprehensive refresh over its predecessor, with Ford touting that its new midsize vehicle had over 1500 new modifications.

These mods included significant chassis improvements such as stronger ball joints, new front wishbones, new dampers and changing the position of the rear spring hangers.

Customers could option their XM in a number of different body styles that comprised a four-door sedan, four-door wagon, two-door hardtop, two-door ute and a two-door panel van.

Power was derived from three inline six-cylinder motors which came in three levels of displacement; 2.4lt, 2.8lt and 3.3lt.  

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

This particular XM is a Deluxe model with the 2.8lt inline six and the two-speed automatic transmission.

According to the seller, the vehicle has travelled approximately 344,000 miles and, remarkably, it has only ever had one owner from new.  

The seller adds that the XM has immaculate body work, the original interior and has been garaged its entire life.

The XM is $21,000 and anyone interested in this Aussie classic can view the full listing here.
