NICK CAMP­BELL Fal­con XB GT Coupe

Spec: re­stored and stan­dard apart from elec­tric fan

Classic Ford - - FORD FEST -

And now for some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent... Nick’s (frankly huge) 1974 Aus­tralian Fal­con is one of only four cur­rently in the UK, he reck­ons and is a rare old thing thanks to that dis­tinc­tive colour. “It’s called Mush­room Beige,” re­veals Nick, “and this car is one of only four that came from the fac­tory wear­ing it.The XB was re­stored be­tween 2002-2004 back in Perth, Western Aus­tralia, but has been in Lon­don with me for a good few years.” Lon­don? “Yes, it’s sur­pris­ingly easy to drive it around the city, though I’ve had to fit an elec­tric fan to help keep the Cleve­land 351 cool.”

Ben Szanto’s Es­cort needs to go lower, don’t you think? Clas­sic Ford and clas­sic BMX: a win­ning com­bi­na­tion. Robert Twinn’s Mk2 Granada fea­tures a very neat 24-valve V6 in­stall.
