50th Anniversary Ford Falcon invasion

As Ford's Falcon model enters its second half century on existence, the American manufacturer is gearing up for a frantic Falcon summer, with no less than 6 special models dedicated to the occasion.

"The Falcon's long and distinguished heritage is unmatched by any other car in the history of Australian motoring," Beth Donovan, Ford Australia Marketing, Sales & Service vice president said in a release."50 years of continuity in any industry is a remarkable achievement, but it's especially rare in a dynamic field like the car industry."

Ford's models chosen to celebrate the anniversary year are G6E 50th Anniversary, G6E Turbo 50th Anniversary, Falcon XR6 50th Anniversary sedan, Falcon XR6 Turbo 50th Anniversary sedan, Falcon XR6 50th Anniversary Ute and Falcon XR6 Turbo 50th Anniversary Ute.

For the G series, the anniversary package comprises unique accent colour treatments with "Medium Stealth" touches, new leather detailed seat trim with embroidered "50th Anniversary" logos, 50th Anniversary badge, fender feature and carpet floor mats and 19-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels.

All G Series 50th Anniversary models will be available in two new colors which will be introduced in May and August.

For the XR, Ford prepared "XR50" badging, XR50 body stripes and a "50th Anniversary" fender feature, Interior Command Centre (ICC), instrument panel and front door spears, standard dual zone climate control, premium audio system and high series sports leather steering wheel.

"Recommended pricing for the Falcon 50th Anniversary range will be announced closer to the on sale date, but as with previous limited edition models, customers can expect these special vehicles to come with some equally special pricing that will deliver exceptional value for money," Donovan added.
