Above All The Xd Is A Prominent Falcon In Australian Automotive History. — In my opinion, the 79 XD was the best looking car of the range and still to this day is a sought after model. As mine was origionally a cast iron head 6 cyl with a column auto, bench buckets and vinyl interior was a hardy vehicle. It was and still is a strong built car with the new styling of plastic bumpers, inertia seat belts and for its time, a very well layed out dash with all controls in easy reach

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Both my kids came home in this car and by pure luck, came off the production line same month and year i was born so holds a deal of sentimental value.

Cons: The only down side to the XD was that without alot of money spent, it just refused to go around corners at speed.

1979 Ford Falcon Review

Orsmxd — Ford Xd ESP ( European sports pack ) brought roughly 11 years ago and was red when we brought it. Fully customised by my husband and I with great help from mates. Has done 11's but husband not happy with that so is currently getting a new motor built to do 10's or 9's. Ford Cleveland motor. Ford 9 inch diff. Simmons. Mickey Thompsons. Lobelia Indigo Paint. Fuel cell. Handles and drives well on the road, but stiff on the drag strip.

Pros: Unique car with very spacious and comfortable interior, V8 sound is highly addictive!

Cons: Body is stiff needs to be modified to do bigger wheel stands. Not a car you can take grocery shopping.
