1971 Ford XY Fairmont – Today’s Tempter

By: Alex Affat, Unique Cars magazine

XY Fairmont XY Fairmont

71,000 genuine miles, front buckets and gold pinstriping

Early XY V8s are hot property these days, with GT-disguised clones frequently fetching the auction headlines – and the big bucks.

But what’s left for the average joe that just loves these early Falcons and want a weekend classic in the shed.

70s Aussie family rigs are also on the rise, but you can still find XR-XYs sixes for what could be deemed ‘attainable’.

Take this ’71 XY Fairmont for example.

Details and photos within the listing are light, but it certainly looks like one worth a look. The listing indicates it’s fitted with a six-cylinder and automatic; though not specified whether it’s a 200ci or a 250ci.

It appears to be finished in Monza Green with gold pinstriping and is reportedly in good condition throughout.

Listed for $40,000 – the car could be worth investigating if you’re after a useable XY.

The car is based in Queensland, and you can check out the full listing here!
