Re: read stupid question, what is e-series

The "E series" is a series of falcons from 1988 (the "EA") that ran until 1998. They were designed and built in Australia and this is where most of them are. Some went to New Zealand I believe.
The various series ran: EA, EA2, EB, EB2, ED, EF, EF2, EL, (EL2 is mentioned occasionally, but nothing really concrete about it anywhere). the EA-ED were all pretty much identical on the outside but mechanically they changed. then there was the new "rounded" shape for the EF which carried over to the EL. EF and EL are basically the same car underneath, with a few body changes.
As implied by having their own area, the E series were and still are VERY popular car- Good family car, good new driver car, good towing car, ok performance car, good cruiser, easily and relatively cheaply modified. Probably the best thing to come out of Ford Aust. until the BA.
To top it all off, second hand, they're cheap as chips for purchase and insurance.

Re: read stupid question, what is e-series

Australian cars are generally referred to by a 2 letter model code rather than a model year like over there. For a brief overview of the Australian Falcons, this link is a good site

Re: read stupid question, what is e-series

US Falcons ceased production in 1970 I think?

The first Aussie falcons were basically identical (bar being Right Hand Drive) to their US counterparts for the first half of the sixties. The 1965-1970 US and Aussie Falcons appeared to be similar, and then the US Falcons were discontinued and the Aussie designs from the 70s onwards were for Australia only (with exports to certain countries, New Zealand being the main one as they have the same Ford/Holden <think Ford/GM> rivalry that we have).

Our Falcon/Commodore (Ford/Holden) rivalry is like your Mustang/Camaro rivalry in the US.

You are thinking of XR-XT... By 1980 there were no Falcons being made in the states, from XA on it was Aus only. A limo mob called Spanmor made some coupes which you might be thinking of
