Aussie 1972 Ford Fairmont XA Coupe for $75k is a Tough Sale

Australian fans of the Valiant Charger and Holden Monaro may disagree, but for the rest of the world, Ford’s 1970s Falcon and its derivatives is the most well-known two-door muscle car from Down Under. That’s mostly because of its role in the Mad Max franchise.

To find one in the States is a rare occasion, but whether that justifies a top asking price, depends on how much you really want one.

This example is a 1972 Ford Fairmont XA Coupe, which is a more upmarket trim version of the Falcon XA Coupe of the same generation – the one you would really want, though, is the Falcon GT XA Coupe.

Powered by Ford’s 302 Windsor V8, the light purple-colored XA Coupe was listed twice on eBay at $75,000 with no sale made. We also found it on Myclassicgarage for the same asking price. For half that of money, you can get a 1970s Mustang Mach 1, but you know what they say about every seat…
