Good and honest six-cylinder XT Wagon

Ford hit a home run with the Mustang-bred XR Falcon, and remained tight-lipped about the XT update up until it first arrived in 1968.

New grille, rear indicators, hubcaps and badges were the visual changes most obvious to buyers at the time; but less obvious changes included split-system brakes, larger diameter tyres and electric windscreen washers.

The XT range included three trim levels in four-door sedan and wagon guise, or two-door utility and van bodies.

Your choices in powerplant comprised of a 188ci or 221ci inline-six, or one of two 302ci V8 units.

This 1968 XT Falcon Wagon’s driveline consists of an inline-six and three-speed auto.

It looks to be in fair and honest condition, with the seller stating it to be a "reliable cruiser" and a "good honest car".

The seller points out that the car has rust in the usual spots; tailgate and the bottom of two doors (there are pictures in the listing), but a great interior for its age and full functionality.

Overall, the car looks like a solid and affordable package for someone after a classic Aussie family chariot.

In running condition, it would be a handsome honest, almost-"survivor"; or could be truly elevated to the next level with a minor or rolling resto.

The car is based in Western Australia and is listed for $20,000.
