4. Ford Falcon XC Cobra
As you might know, Ford is producing vehicles all around the globe and it was also one of the first companies to introduce different vehicles for different markets. They were all produced under the same name, but the Falcon in America was quite different from the Falcon from Australia. Speaking of which, the next item on the list is the legendary Falcon XC Cobra from the late 70s, which they produced in Ford’s Australian plant, and sold there and in South Africa.
You may remember this car from the first “Mad Max” movie and it was a proper muscle car despite the fact it wasn’t made in Detroit. Back in 1978, Ford Australia had something like 400 bodies of Falcon coupes laying around, but instead of scrapping them, they decided to transform them into special edition cars. Under the hood, there were 5.0-liter V8 engine or 5.7-liter V8.
Besides serious firepower from two high-revving V8 engines, there was a host of other modifications, external details, racing stripes and a special paint job, making the Falcon XC Cobra stand apart from the other Ford Australia products.
Today, the Falcon XC Cobra is rare, with just 400 built. It is sought after, not only by collectors in its home country but by muscle car fanatics worldwide.
