One family owned since new, 53,612 miles, no rust or marks on upholstery

XL/XM Falcons were once lost in obscurity between the first Aussie XK and the later XP, amongst Ford faithfuls and collectors.

But by the simple virtue of time, these early Falcons are finally hitting the radar, and offer a great entry point into Aussie collectible ownership at prices that won’t scare your accountant.

Early Falcons were plagued by reliability problems, though the XP (and its 70,000 mile enduro PR stunt around You Yangs) publically signalled the culmination of their improvements; Ford made many improvements in front-end strength via firewall and strut tower bracing throughout the preceding XL and XM Falcons.

This 1962 XL Falcon seems to be in rare original condition, coming from single family ownership who have cared for the car over 4 generations since new.

The listing states that the car has always been garaged and cherished, and presents free of rust and has no marks on the upholstery.

It certainly looks to be in fantastic condition, with original documentation and owner’s manual.

The car has covered just 53,612 miles since new and was recently serviced in January. It starts without fail and runs well apparently.

The sellers would love to see the car go to a home that will love and use it regularly – they’ve listed it for $25,000 and are based in Queensland.
