Ford Falcon 70,000 mile durability run Pt 1.wmv
In 1965 6 stock standard 6 Cyl Falcons were driven flat out for eight days around a twisty 2.2 mile mountain test circuit until they had completed a total of 70,000 miles, aprox. 5000 laps per car. Despite 3 cars rolling and a collision with a 2 ton rock all the cars finished without mechanical breakdowns. This was a make or break stunt by Ford to show how tough the new XP Falcon was.





"Matlock Police" car chase (1972)
This has already been uploaded elsewhere, but sadly incomplete - here it is in full. BOTH chases... And, yes, the speedo shown is an XW / XY, not an XR; and the wreck is a 500, not the GT. It was a drama, not a documentary...

1995 Ford Falcon Outback XG ute
Australian Ford ute promotional video from 1995: "Outback in the Outback: the Falcon Longreach Outback Ute. When a two wheel drive Falcon Longreach ute came twelfth overall in last year's Australian Safari, a lot of people thought, 'I'd like one of those." Well now they can have one. The Longreach Outback ute is based on the class winning vehicle that covered the 6,240km between Sydney and Darwin. 'Outback in the outback' proves that you don't need four wheel drive every time you drive off the tarmac. The Longreach Outback isn't intended to replace four wheel drives; some people will always need one. But this film convincingly shows the Outback's abilities. And they may well be exactly what you need. Have you driven a Ford... Lately?"
