The ZD series was released in November 1970 for the 1971 model year. The base engine became a 250-cubic-inch (4.1 L) six-cylinder unit, while the 302 and 351 V8s remained, the latter found only in the Fairlane 500. Externally, the taillights were restyled (like XY Falcon), and a new plastic grille with metal surround (mimicking the USA and Brazilian market 1966 model year Galaxie 500) and new boot garnish were used. Internally, new door trim patterns debuted and the speedometer backing was now black instead of the silver used on ZCs. The ZA to ZD were stretched versions of the XR to XY series Ford Falcons, respectively, with the extra length added behind the rear door, moving the rear seat back and giving more leg room.
Muscle Car Warehouse are now offering for sale this stunning 1970 ZD Fairlane K Code. With its striking factory Track Red colour and Ultra White roof, together with the beautiful white vinyl interior this car is a one of a kind and bound to turn heads wherever it goes. It is believed as little as 16 ZD Fairlane’s were made in Track Red. The paintwork is in terrific condition and so too are all the mouldings and chrome work. The car has been treated to a set of five slot wheels and freshly red walled tyres. The adjusted ride height also suits the long lines of the Fairlane perfectly. The trim in the Fairlane is all to factory specifications with rare options such as integrated air conditioning and an original 8 track radio tape player. While the original air conditioning is not operational a much more functional under dash unit has been added. There Is also the addition of extra gauges to monitor the healthy 351 lurking under the hood. The pearl painted steering wheel is a tasteful touch and adds that hot rod feel to the car but remains quite subtle. Under the bonnet is a healthy 351 Cleveland motor once again with tasteful dress ups such as alloy rocker covers, purposeful aftermarket air cleaner and an alloy radiator. Teaming up with the engine is an FMX auto with a 4000 convertor and lastly the original 9” diff with a Detroit Locker centre. When rebuilt the driveline had upwards of $30,000 spent on it. The restoration was completed approximately 14 years ago and has its current condition is testament to all the work that was done. This Fairlane is a fantastic mix of luxury and loudness and is super practical and can be driven anywhere comfortably. Now available by appointment only at our Kogarah facility.
