Re: falcon 500 stacked lights ute?? help!

If you post some pics if possible it would help no end. In the mean time, is there an id plate and if so what does it say (chassis/engine no's, codes, etc) and where is it located in the engine bay? Do you know what year it is?

Certainly sounds like a Falcon ute with a Fairlane front (the stacked headlight part). Aussie Fords were exported to the UK in the era, and the panel swap could have easily been done in the years since.

XY (XY was '71, right?) ute with a ZC or ZD Fairlane front end... possibly even a Galaxie front end... it's a fairly common swap - i've seen a few around - looks great!

Re: falcon 500 stacked lights ute?? help!

yeah mate - caught the thread in the ute forum just after i posted...

plenty of Falcon (standard sedan/ute) ute's around with Fairlane/LTD (top of the line long-wheelbase barge) front ends and interiors... they were a bolt-up swap from the late 60's, and i believe they still are... have only seen one of your vintage (XY), and it looked great - i'm a big fan of the stacked headlights...

Never seen a '67 Ranchero, but it definately does make the car look more American.

a 351 or 302 Cleveland could well be the running gear from the donor Fairlane, haven't seen an awful lot of stock V8 utes around, although they definately exist.

SOunds like a great find, especially in England... Enjoy it!
