Ford kept playing the value-added card to prop-up Falcon sales. Trainspotters should be aware of the “Series III” badge, smoked headlight surrounds, the addition of side skirts, clear side indicator lens and an extra-tinted windscreen.

The Ghia once again was powered by a 168kW/370Nm version of the 4.0L VCT engine.

Near the unloved AU III’s end Ford began to leak details of the heavily facelifted and re-engineered BA Falcon.
