Ford XA Fal­con RPO83 Hard­top in Yel­low Fire

- Cars · Consumer Goods · Mustang

An Amer­i­can friend of mine who ed­its a mag­a­zine over there I do some work for told me the XA-XC Fal­con coupes were ‘ugly’. Hmph. I guess it’s in the eye of the be­holder. I love them. They look tough, as long as you’ve got some fat rear wheels to ll those enor­mous guards. Which, sadly this car does not. It’s got steel 12-slots in­stead – the ba­sics only for this one. But then that’s how they came. The 1:18 scale model fea­tures in­clude XA sports steer­ing wheel, full dash in­stru­men­ta­tion and com­po­nents. Ar­gent painted steel 12 slot rims with GT cen­tres are an out­stand­ing fea­ture on this model with their chrome trim rings to­gether with the red-wall tyres. Sit­ting on top of the 351 Cleve­land V8 is the air cleaner with high per­for­mance sticker. The bon­net hinges are etched metal for re­al­ism and smooth op­er­a­tion. The model has su­perb chas­sis de­tail with work­ing front sus­pen­sion and steer­ing. The springs, sway-bar, wheel rims and brake discs fea­ture nicely. Like the Mus­tang, there will be just 500 of this model, so it should sell out quickly, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing it’s the rst Fal­con coupe in a cou­ple of years. Again, we don’t have pric­ing or re­lease dates yet but keep check­ing with your favourite re­tailer of at www.clas­s­ic­c­car­lecta­bles. com.au for more de­tail.

This Oc­tane Or­ange FPV looks the goods, doesn’t it? The colour re­ally pops and the car it­self is a good-look­ing thing, with the strip­ing echo­ing other fa­mous Fords of the past. This is a 1:18 scale model and it’s moulded in resin, so while there are no open­ing parts, the win­dows show a very nicely de­tailed in­te­rior. It’s due later this year, for $225 or so.
