Ford’s crushing one-two form finish at Bathurst 1977 provided a seminal moment in Australian motor racing history. Even so, Ford Australia wasn’t enjoying much showroom success with its XC Falcon hardtops. But a clever piece of strategy by Edsel Ford II, Henry Ford’s great-grandson, turned this around. While earning his stripes with a posting at Broadmeadows, Edsel suggested using the revered “Cobra” moniker and striped paintwork for a limited edition batch of 400 Falcon V8 hardtops. While there were no mechanical changes to this special model over regular versions, the concept proved a masterstroke. The XC Falcon Cobra sold out in just days, its unmistakable blue-on-white striped colour scheme making it one of Australia’s most iconic muscle cars.
