Ford Falcon 4WD Ute

“Ford Australia had a fairly serious try at a four wheel drive with a 4WD based on the Ford Falcon XY ute of the early 1970s. Apparently 432 were built in Brisbane for sale in Queensland and NSW. The 4WD Falcon had the 4 litre 6-cylinder engine, Spicer transfer-case and leaf springs front and rear. Tougher Australian Design Rules (ADR) caused production to be stopped.

The 4WD Falcon XY ute was an official Ford project, but from time to time enthusiasts have had similar ideas. For example now and again you might see a Ford Falcon station wagon or panel van mounted an a Land Rover or Toyota LandCruiser chassis and running gear – a simple if heavy way to get a car interior with rugged off-road ability.

Ford’s main rival, General Motors Holden does not seem to have seriously entertained a home-grown four wheel drive but the GM Holden Overlander conversion was produced in modest numbers for a while. Other Australian 4WDs, on a larger scale, include Caldwell ValeOka and RFW.”
