BA (Barra!) Station Wagons! Any???

This may sound like a stupid question...?? But is their, or is their going to be a BA Station Wagon based on the BA design? I know there are XT Futura wagons but I have never seen or heard of a BA station wagon.....surely they are going to make one?

They have 3 station wagons at my work, they all have a XT silver badge on the boot which says " XT" and the Futura is there also So who is wrong? Or am I blind, cause thats what I saw?

Re: BA (Barra!) Station Wagons! Any???

are you asking if their is a BA futura station wagon ???
As a BA is the model ( like EA, XF whatever ) they obviously make a station wagon in BA format.

Umm
Do you drive with your eyes open?
There are BA wagons every where!

XT Futura? no such thing
do you mean "XT and Futura wagons"? There are XTs and there are futuras, you can be "one or t'other".. not both.

All XT, futura, XR, fairmont, fairlane are "BA"
BA just means current (2002-2004/5) model style.

Unless you are asking are ther XR wagons or fairmont or fairlane wagons

in which case the answer is NO there wont be, if you want a wagon and futura aint enough ...wait for Territory must be the message.

(aint been a fairlane wagon since the grand old yank tanks of the early 60s, ahhh memories )

I have seen heaps of wagons so you had better keep your eyes open!!
XT is a separate model from the futura so you must be blind.

Check out Ford Australia's web site http://www.ford.com.au. You'll see that they sell the BA Falcon XT wagon and another model which is the BA Falcon Futura Wagon.

Re: BA (Barra!) Station Wagons! Any???

The BA wagons have the same rear end as the AU series. You can pick the difference by the XT badge on the rear rather than Forte


The front end is the BA design.

Hang on..are you having a lend here, mate?

First you say you have never seen BA wagon, then you say you have seen wagons with XT and futura badges. Either you have seen them or you havent. After reading this, its your fault Im gunna have a killer hangover in the morining. Enough to drive a bloke to drink (OK im looking for excuses to tell the Mrs)

Given the XT only came into being with the BA range. any car with XT badge is BA. Ergo, your wagon with XT badge is BA wagon. Unless some joker has stuck a XT badge on his AU futura wagon (as you would, i dont think) then i guess its a a xt futura badged AU wagon.

thank you good night - end of discussion (reaching for the Jamisons)
