About the group

The Falcon 4WD Owners was formed in 2001 after the closure of the Falcon 4WD Registry which commenced in 1997. The group has a get-together every Easter generally in the eastern states. This year, the group will visit Parkes.

 

About the Ford XY Falcon 4WD

Their interest surrounds the preservation of this unique vehicle that had a limited production run of 432 vehicles in the Ford XY Utility body shell only. The Ford Motor Company produced the XY Falcon 4WD in Brisbane in conjunction with Shute Upton Engineering (a subsidiary of the Jeep Australia).

 

The vehicle was developed initially for the Australian Army as indicated by Howard Marsden, in various articles on the vehicles, however the vehicles were not contracted by the army. The vehicles were released to the public around Nov/Dec 1972 and marketed in NSW and Qld only. The XY Falcon 4WD is powered by the 250 CID 6 cylinder motor while the four
wheel drive components are jeep. (3 speed Gearbox, Dana 20 Transfer Case and Dana 44 front and rear axle assemblies). The vehicles came out in a variety of colours with options of a high military type canvas canopy, towbar or PTO winch. 25 vehicles were produced with the factory PTO winch.
