Ford Falcon

XT Falcon

1 Mar 1968

Underneath the new grille and redesigned taillights lurked more powerful and economical engines – now an 85kW/244Nm 3.1-litre/188ci and a 101kW/282Nm 3.6/221 six-cylinder engines, and a 157kW/407Nm 5.0/“Mustang 302” V8.

On the safety front the brakes were improved, larger tyres were fitted, the now-horizontal indicators were also reverse lights in the taillights, an external mirror was incorporated and windscreen washers were devised.

The standard three-speed manual’s first-gear was now synchromesh too. 79,290 XTs were manufactured.
