The Final Ford Falcon Enters Production In Australia

The very last Ford Falcon sedan has started production at Ford’s Broadmeadows Assembly Plant in Australia, according to website It will spend tonight in partially-complete form before assembly is finished tomorrow.

The blue Ford Falcon XR6 sedan will join Broadmeadows’ last-ever Territory SUV and Falcon ute as a museum piece as the assembly plant shutters operations forever tomorrow. Ford Motor Company is ceasing all Australian production after 91 years, owing to hefty losses incurred in that market over the past decade.

The last Ford Falcon will receive a special send-off at the Broadmeadows plant tomorrow, reports, to which only production staff will be invited; not even designers or engineers working in the plant will be allowed to attend. The plant has some 600 remaining hourly workers, each of which will be left jobless as a result of Ford’s decision to cease its production operations in Australia.

The automaker has built more than 3.8 million Ford Falcon units in Australia over the last 56 years.
