About the XD ESP
Replacing the outgoing XC Falcon, the Ford Falcon XD was released in March of 1979 and stayed in production until March of 1982.
It was a wholly different car to the XC Falcon, not least because it featured a completely new body shape with much more boxy proportions.
The XD was made available to customer in a number of different body styles that comprised a four-door sedan, five-door wagon, two-door ute and a two-door panel van.
Furthermore, customers could choose from a range of different model XD’s which included the Falcon GL, Fairmont and Fairmont Ghia.
Customers could also choose have their Falcon or Fairmont fitted with either the S Pack or European Sports Pack (ESP).
Power came from either a 3.3lt or 4.1lt inline six-cylinder or, for those wanting a bit more grunt, a 4.9lt or 5.8lt V8!
The oomph from these motors was sent to the XD Falcon’s rear wheels via either a three-speed automatic or a three or four-speed manual transmission.
