1968 Ford ZB Fairlane
From 1959 to 1964, the Fairlane was a locally assembled version of the American Ford Fairlane which had taken its name from Henry Ford’s estate, Fair Lane, near Dearborn, Michigan. This was Ford Australia’s top-of-the-range model until replaced by an Australian-assembled version of the full-size American Ford Galaxie. In 1967, Ford Australia reintroduced the Fairlane, this time as an Australian-developed, luxury, long-wheelbase version of its mainstream Falcon, positioned between the Falcon and the Galaxie. The locally assembled Galaxie evolved into the LTD which was itself replaced in 1973 by an Australian-developed, Fairlane-based model, also known as the Ford LTD. In Australia, “LTD” originally stood for “Lincoln Type Design”, although Ford Australia later promoted a connection with the meaning “Limited”.
This particular Fairlane is a 1968 ZB based on the XT Falcon, this car was a one owner car until it changed hands recently and still sports it’s weathered but original number plates from new as it’s never been degregistered. It’s a very solid and honest old girl, it has had one repaint in it’s original polar white including the engine bay, the 302 and auto have been rebuilt and in great condition. The burgundy trim is all original and in great original shape, obviously shows some ware as does the car in general given it’s unrestored with the exception of paint and the motor and box but is honest as the day is long… These big girls where often just wreaked out for the drive-lines but have gained a lot of popularity and are still hitting a price point that makes them a stand out in the entry level market.
