Ford Motor Company of Australia Ltd.,

The Australian Ford is working in the shadow of the broader program of GM Holden. The production ratio Holden to Ford is about 3: 2, Chrysler Australia comes close to half of the Ford figures. Export not only to East Asia, but a selection of large models even to England.
The Ford Cortina 6 is an English Cortina. Engines, however, are 6-cylinder 3.3 liters / 132 hp and 4.1 liters / 157 hp.
The large models are offshoots of older US Ford. The series Falcon, Futura, Fairmont and Fairlane was derived from the US Ford Fairlane of the 60s. The Ford Landau is a luxury coupe on Falcon suspension with the 5.8-liter 304 hp engine. With the Ford LTD, the top model follows as a sedan on extended chassis with the same engine as Ford Landau.

FORD FAIRMONT from £3,063
American size and style, but from Ford of Australia, where this big saloon is one of a range of cars with six-cylinder and V8 engines. The selection also includes coupös and station Wagons, wich the powerful flexible engines and easy-riding suspension demanded by buyers who offen haue to travel big distances with heavy loads. Australia also makes a six-cylinder Cortina, but it would be surprising to see that in London.
