We are hoping to show on this page some literature about Australian Fords, and also, some literature about Australian Chryslers, as both were advertised and sold in the U.K.

We owe a great debt of thanks to Jason Durand in Australia for sharing scans of his brochure collection for this page.

But first, something from Andrew showing the different foreign Fords that you could buy in the U.K. in 1971.

Here is an earlier Ford Imported Cars brochure, possibly from 1974 or 1975, featuring the XB Fairmont.

The 1977 Ford Imported Cars brochure which now features the XC Fairmont, in an otherwise identical format.

There now follows the 1978 Ford Personal Import Export catalogue.

We would be very interested in finding out about or acquiring any other U.K. Ford catalogues that featured Australian Fords.


Here is the cover from an Australian LTD Cartier brochure - the LTD’s were mentioned above. Notice it has an Automobile Association stamping on it, from their technical library, but also it came with a covering letter from Ford Personal Import Export.

Some U.K. magzines that featured roadtests of Australian fords

Autocar, 9th November, 1967

Custom Car Magazine, January, 1975

I am grateful to Chris, one of our Mopar friends in Scotland, for finding a copy of this magazine which has a ‘road test’ of an XB GT Falcon. It is fascinating to look back at how the car was reported about here in the U.K. within the context of the aftermath of the first ‘oil crisis’. It is also quite interesting to see what was allowed for a cover shot for a car magazine 30 years ago.

Motor magazine, 23rd November, 1974

I managed to find this magazine on ebay U.K. and features a road-test from ‘Motor’ magazine for the same car as featured in ‘Custom Car’ above. Interestingly, it shows the car in colour which appears to be Red Pepper, and it also shows the rear of the car with the U.K. spec tail-lights, which came from the Triumph Dolomite. This car also has a front spoiler, and extra, intriguing, lights on the rear valance near the exhaust tail pipes. The text is ‘interesting’ too.

Motor magazine, 29th March, 1975
