How good does this look?!

Released in February of 1965 and replacing the XM Falcon, the Ford Falcon XP was the final instalment of the first generation of one of Australia’s most iconic automotive monikers.

The XP Falcon stayed in production until September of 1966, at which point it was replaced by the XR Falcon.

The XP differed from its predecessor in a number of different ways that were mainly cosmetic, and these updates included a completely restyled front end.

Customers could choose to have their XP in a number of different body styles that comprised a four-door sedan, four-door station wagon, two-door hardtop, two-door ute and a two-door panel van.

Furthermore, customers could option their XP with three different engines; a 2.3lt, 2.8lt or 3.3lt inline six-cylinder motor.

These engines sent their collective oomph to the XP’s rear wheels via either a three-speed manual or a two or three-speed automatic transmission.

This particular XP Falcon is a ’66 two-door hardtop and, according to the seller, the vehicle is in excellent condition and has travelled 88,888 miles from new.
