“I have at­tached a photo of a Fal­con coupe I saw at the Ford deal­er­ship in Pen­rith, NSW some­time be­tween 1974 and ’79,” writes Mike of the stun­ning ma­chine he spotted at Sin­clair Ford. “The badge be­hind the front wheel may be ‘Con­corde’ or ‘Grande’”. Looks very much like the hand­i­work of for­mer Ford de­signer Peter Ar­cadi­pane to us. The dis­tinc­tive nosecone de­sign of Ar­cadi­pane’s Con­corde show­stop­per panel van of 1977 was re­born on Mad Max’s In­ter­cep­tor and this is an­other prod­uct of the fi­bre­glass nosecone craze. Mean­time, Mike says the car­yard full of Amer­i­can mus­cle was on Par­ra­matta Road and shot around the same time. He snapped the ‘sec­tioned’ Fal­con at Klosters Ford in New­cas­tle a few years ear­lier.
