Australia’s Rarest Car – 6-Door Ford XY Falcon


When it comes to rare cars, they don’t come rarer than a car that’s the only one ever made. That’s exactly the case with the Ford XY Falcon Wagon, a 6-door factory-built beauty originally made to order for TAA Airlines to be used as a courtesy car. Like the movie Highlander, there can be only one, and now it can be yours!

Key Ford XY Falcon 6 Door Wagon Highlights:

  • Singularity in Rarity: It’s a given – cars don’t attain a higher echelon of rarity than those of which only a single model has ever been produced. The Ford XY Falcon Wagon embodies this pinnacle of exclusivity.
  • Origin & Purpose: Initially designed and crafted for TAA Airlines, this 6-door marvel served as their courtesy car. A custom-built masterpiece, its existence is unparalleled in the realm of Australian cars.
  • Ownership Opportunity: A treasure like this is bound to have its admirers. So, if you’ve been fortunate enough to save a significant sum, seize the chance. Lloyds’ Grand Final Fever auction is presenting this unique vehicle, with the initial bid set at a mere $1. Yet, be forewarned – its unparalleled status in the automotive world ensures that the final bid will likely soar to impressive heights.
  • Beyond the Falcon: Should this prized Falcon elude your grasp, fret not. The auction boasts a diverse array of automotive gems, from a pristine 1982 Holden Commodore Group III to a stored beauty, the 1977 4-door Holden A9X Torana, and even a race car with a legacy from Walkinshaw Andretti United Racing.

I mean…if you’ve got a bit of cash lying around, that is. The one-of-a-kind Ford is going under the hammer at Lloyds’ Grand Final Fever auction, with bidding starting at $1. Although, presumably, you shouldn’t show up expecting to snap it up for a buck and a half. The rarest car in Australia is bound to fetch a pretty penny as classic car lovers clamour for it.

If the XY Falcon slips away from you, the auction offers up a nice selection of other prizes, including a 1982 Holden Commodore Group III in original and meticulous condition, a 1977 4-door Holden A9X Torana which has sat in storage for 15 years and a multiple podium finishing race car chassis built and run by Walkinshaw Andretti United Racing and driven by the likes of Courtney and Tander.

But there’s no doubt the headline act is the Falcon, which quite literally stands alone in Australian automotive history.
