Numbers matching, largely unrestored wagon: closed door in respray in original colour 15 years ago

Ford’s sophomore Falcon, the XT, was produced for less than two years from March 1968 to June 1969. In that short time however the brand’s newfound success it found with the newfangled XR Falcon endured with around 79,290 XTs rolling off the production line.

Available in sedan, wagon, panel van and ute forms, with three different trim lines; the XT could be most easily distinguished by its new grille, rear indicators, new hubcaps and badges.

At the top of the trim tree, sat the luxuriously appointed Fairmont, coming as standard with the 3.6lt six-cylinder and automatic transmission. Seat belts, Fairmont-specific door-trims, plasti-wood dash and courtesy lights were amongst the Fairmont’s other standard features.

This 1969 XT Fairmont wagon looks like a great find.

With the standard and numbers matching 3.6lt six-cylinder and column-shift auto, the car presents largely unrestored, save for a closed door respray 15 years ago in its original Vintage Burgundy/White Roof colour.

The interior remains untouched with the factory optioned Dickey seat, and remains in great condition for its age, and a testament to its 81,380 original miles.

Overall, it looks like a great and honest classic family cruiser in a well-presented turn-key package.

The car is based in New South Wales, and is listed for $33,000.
