Im currently restoring a 73 XA superbird coupe, 67000 miles, 4speed in polar white with cosmic blue highlights.

any other superbird owners out there, or do you know of someone who owns one? only 750 where made and they are pretty rare

cheers

Great article, about the only early Falcon one I don't have!

FANTASTIC to hear of another coupe being restored and living on, there are too few nice examples of these cars around. Call me biased, but I reckon FORD really created something special with the 2 door falcon.
Would love to hear some details about her and photos would be great.

not far from where i live, there is a genuine, original xb superbird ute. yes, they did make acouple of them, as well as panelvans. this ute is straight-as, no dents, no rust, all original gt/gs parts fitted etc etc., but is covered in about three feet of dust. its owned by an old italian couple, and theres no way they'll part with it. i knocked on the door once,and in the time it took them to get to they dor, i could have had it on a trailer and on my way home!!.
i also have in my goodies collection, two genuine ford xa superbird decals, the ones you have on your rear quarters. i paid $5 each for them at a closing down sale at a country ford dealers.

I've never heard of an xb superbird..let alone a superbird ute or panelvan!

There based on the falcon 500 bodyshell and were all 1973 models the last of the XA's

Would be a pretty cool car though - superbird ute!! Im getting mine resprayed next month, they are bead blasting it and repainting it 100% original. The current paint is a little bit down, and i want to keep it forever. I want it 100% perfect. The interior is perfect.

I got the superbird and 302 decals for the respray from GT Ford Performance in Melbourne.

I saw an xa "superbird" ute for sale in one of the books a few months ago, they claimed it was an original.?
