Random # 22: 1964 XM Falcon Coupe

No prizes for guessing exactly what year and model this magnificent Ford Falcon coupe is! 

Not sure if this image works or not.  It was either a horizontal car or a horizontal horizon, with the former winning out.
The twin exhaust pipes suggest it's a V8 but UMPH isn't sure if Aussie-made versions were ever equipped with anything other than a straight-six.

It might be that it's an import from the USA, like the lovely blue version featured in Random # 15: Falcon Convertible (https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=7165367970551834236#editor/target=post;postID=6267208270993806494;onPublishedMenu=posts;onClosedMenu=posts;postNum=4;src=postname), but reconfigured to right-hand drive.

Please excuse the UMPH iPhone reflection!
There's also a fair chance that the V8, if that's actually what's under the bonnet, was retro-fitted.

In the end, the only thing that really matters is that it's a great looking car!
