1978 XC Ford Falcon Cobra

1978 XC Ford Falcon Cobra - 1978, XC, Falcon Cobra, Ford

Wallpaper Description:
The Cobra was a limited edition of the Ford Falcon released by Ford Australia in 1978. It was based on the XC Hardtop (Coupe).

In 1978, Ford Australia unveiled plans for an all-new Falcon, dubbed the XD, that would be released in 1979.

Unlike the current XC, the new model would be offered only as a four-door sedan or station wagon, meaning the two-door XC Hardtops of 1978 would be the last of that design.

The cars were painted bold blue and Olympic blue racing stripes and finished with snow white and "Cobra" emblems, a throwback to Carroll Shelby's Mustangs of the 1960's that made the car easily identifiable as a Ford muscle car.

Unusually, the body shells were painted blue first, the intended blue stripes then masked and the white coat painted over the top. Each of the cars was given its own individual serial number and fitted with a sequentially-numbered plaque (from 1 to 400) in the dash.

The first 200 produced were given the 5.8L 351 Cleveland V8, while the other 200 received the 4.9L 302 Cleveland (the exception Build number 1 was a 302 and Build Number 351 was a 351).

Cobras were available with either automatic or manual transmission.

Standard equipment included four-wheel disc brakes and limited slip axles, 15-inch Bathurst Globe wheels, front & rear spoilers and dual exhaust.

The interiors were fitted with sport cloth seats in black with blue inserts and based on the 1978 Ford Falcon GS Coupe.

From number 2 to 31 were known as Option 97, were fitted with optional parts to allow homologation for racing, including twin thermostatically controlled fans, an engine oil cooler and racing seats.

They were identified from the other 370 Option 96 Cobras by a large rear-opening bulge in the hood.

Allan Moffat raced a "look a like" Replica in 1978 Bathurst 1000.

Falcon Cobras are still highly revered by collectors across Australia and most still exist.

A mint example can be worth upwards of $100,000.
