Alan Crossley's 1967/8 XR Falcon
Location: Adelaide South Australia
Hi my name is Alan, and I live in Adelaide South Australia.
My Falcon is a 1967/68 XR Falcon 500. I have had it for two years now and it has an original 39,000 miles on the clock.
It has a 200 super pursuit motor with 3 speed column manual. All that I have done to it, since I've had it, is lower the suspension by two inches and put 12 slot mags and new tires on it. Other than that, the car is completely original, It didn't even come with a heater or radio.
I have since installed a stereo, which I have mounted under the dash so as I didn't have to cut any holes in the dashboard, because all the dash panels are in perfect condition.
When I originally bought it I intended to put a 289 V8 engine in to it with automatic transmission and Fairmont trim, however because of the low mileage and overall condition (right down to the original rubber floor), I came to the conclusion that I would be mad to play around with it, not to
mention the abuse I copped from my Dad when I told him of my plans.
I hope you like it as much as I do !!!
I thought that I would also send you this picture (top) that I have made up of my car as I entered it in the "Birdwood Classic", which is the largest classic vehicle rally/run of it's kind in the world.
