The EB II Falcon SS in late '92 was devised, like the VP Commodore SS V6 it competed with, technically as a production model. Neither were ever intended to be mainstream. Only fans of Group E production car racing would have heard of them.

The Falcon SS' 4.0 six was effectively a prototype for the original S-XR6, lacking only the split exhaust, and with a milder suspension tune. A camber kit and a V8-derived gearbox improved performance and handling, while ABS, an LSD and a raised rear deck wing were also fitted.

Price was $31,467 - $561 more than the superior S-XR6, which deliberately ensured the lack of popularity, not to mention availability issues.

This information is from the October '92 issue of Wheels, though someone on the #eafalcon IRC channel recently contradicted this by claiming the the SS had a supercharger.

Hi there. I know this is an old thread but I own one of these EB SS falcons and was wondering if anyone can tell me where I can get some information about the history of them. My car has been modified to The Australian Saloon Car Spec but I was hoping someone may be able to help me find out more about the history of the EB SS falcon. I purchased mine as a Saloon car and didn't even know there was such a car as falcon SS. I assumed this was a misprint in my logbook (Thought maybe was just an S) until recently when my car was scruntineered by a CAMS official who creamed his pants over my car being a falcon SS. I have a few contacts at Ford in Geelong but they weren't even aware of the EB Falcon SS and I haven't been able to find any information anywhere.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards, Brad

Re: EB Falcon SS

Hi
I know these posts are pretty old but I too am now looking for info on the EB SS. My brother was pretty much given one recently and we have only just found out that there are only 10 in existence so we are keen to find out any info we can as well.

The success of Kent Youlden in the Group E production touring car series and the fact that Kent worked for FoMoCo allowed them access to facilities at the Geelong engine plant. Also a meeting with Howard Marsdon in which the decision was made to produce the ss purely to homoligate the things which they needed to win the series. I do have the Ford service bulletin somewhere, the engine mods included retarded cam timing and modified ecu. if you are still interested give me a call. andy40d
