when this australian built falcon xl utility was originally sold back in 1963, the ford pr guys claimed a power output of 90 horsepower and a 0-60 time of 18.1 seconds. 
 

these days, this ‘restomod’ ute has performance figures that would leave those pr guys speechless. 
 

thanks to a fully rebuilt 289 mustang v8, coupled to a fully refreshed c4, this car produces around 250 horsepower at the rear wheel, and can sprint to 60 (100km) in around 7.5 seconds. 
 

other performance tweaks include: 
 

  • Holley Carb

  • Electronic ignition

  • 9" Galaxie Dif

  • Mustang GT sway bar

  • Falcon XF rotors

  • HK calipers

  • Suspension lowered 2 inches

  • Thermo fan

  • 15” American Racing rims (blacked-out) 

  • 20 kg ballast packs over rear 


the ute had a full nut and bolt restoration around 8 years ago, and today the quality of that restoration is very evident. the panel-work is still gun-barrel straight, and there are absolutely zero signs of rust. 

 

recently, she has benefited from a cabin refresh, including new carpet, hand-crafted door trims, and a retro looking modern sound system - not that you really need a sound system with the sweet rumble of that v8. 

 

here is a ute that you can drive everyday and have fun embarrassing modern so-called sports cars.
