Ford Fairlane

ZB Fairlane

Ford logo1 Mar 1968

By BYRON MATHIOUDAKIS

Small changes to the grille and taillights were overshadowed by the introduction of two heavily revised engines from the XT Falcon range – a 101kW 3.6L/221ci I6 and 157kW 4.9L/302ci V8.

The base Fairlane was now known as the Custom.

Holden’s half-hearted response was the unhappy 1968 HK Brougham, which was simply a Premier with an elongated boot. Few Aussies were fooled, electing to go for the Fairlane instead.

10,708 ZBs were built.
