Launched alongside the all new, Australian designed and built XA Falcon, was the luxury version, again badged as the Fairlane and coded the ZF model in Ford's parlance. Available in both six and eight-cylinder models, the Fairlane was sold as either the Custom or 500 and both featured power-assisted front disc brakes as standard (four-wheel discs were an option when the 351-cid V8 was fitted). The Fairlane differed from the Falcon in having revised front and rear sheetmetal, with four headlamps and full-width tail lights. The standard engine in the Custom was the 250ci six, while the 500 received the 302ci V8 but both could be ordered with the 351ci V8 for even more performance. Cruiseomatic column-shift auto was standard on both Fairlane models, with the console-mounted T-Bar auto optional. The ZF Fairlane has always been well regarded by those who appreciate the space, comfort and performance afforded by these classic Aussie luxury cars.
