ZD Fairlane

1 Nov 1970

As part of the popular XY Falcon round of changes, the ZD junked the 3.6L I6 for the bigger 116kW 4.1L/250ci I6, that was to become the mainstay of the series for 18 years.

The 4.9L/302ci V8 now produced 164kW of power. A fussy divided egg-crate grille and taillights, new wheels and revised trim are the visual giveaways.

The custom now came with standard bucket seats, while a bench seat and a sunroof made the options list. 12,797 ZDs were built.
