Introduction



Even though there were over 280 changes made to the EB to create the ED, Ford's continued development of the EB had seen so many improvements that the ED was simply an evolution of an already popular and reliable car.

As the "XR" models were proving more and more popular, Ford reserved the biggest styling changes for them. Most distinguishable was the introdution of a unique four-headlight cluster - giving the front appearance of the car an agressive menacing look.

A "Supersport" suspension option was developed by Tickford specifically for XR models equipped with the impressive new 16-inch wheel and 50-scries Michelin tyre combination.

The Falcon S model came to an end, to be replaced by the revival of the "Futura" designation, a mid range model nestled between the entry level GLi and the plush Fairmont.

Standard equipment on the Futura included ABS brakes (also standard on the ED Fairmont), cruise control, an eight-speaker sound system, full instrumentation, digital clock, bodycolour door handles (now standard on all Falcon models except GLi), lamps for ignition lock and map-reading, inertia reel centre lap/sash seat belt.

Enter the ED XR6 I happen to own one of these in the rair pearl black colour. It has custom made extractors and custom exhaust and is running 16inch wheels with 225 low profile rubber. I find this car alot of fun. Its Performance is on par if not better then FG non turbo XR6s and SV6 with direct injection. Its very practical to. When I need to pull something like a boat it does it fantastically I get about 12.5 towing 15ft tinny with 3 peeps in car. never really given me a reliability issue.

ED series never had the 3.2L (90kw) it only came with the 4.0L and the 5.0L. It also had a 4 speed auto, not 3 speed. Both these errors only apply to the EA.

Great car, is basically all i can say about the ED. It's great for those long trip's in the summer heat. Replaced the head once and that is all the trouble i have had! Compared to a 1993 VP Commodore, The 1993 ED Falcon takes the win easy! Great [P] Plater car!!

Hi I have an ED which has done 345K Km's. I bought it when it had done 140K Km's. It has been reliable. It is on gas, gets 520km to a 65 litre gas tank on the open road but only 350 in the city. On petrol it still gets about 550 km to a tank. I have had to replace the head twice, (ED's on gas do a head at 150K km and mine did them like clockwork, a new radiator and brake pads etc. It gets serviced and tuned regularly. Just had it done today. Compression in each cylander was 180 and the repair guy thinks it should be good for another 100K km's. I was thinking of getting another car but will put this off for a while yet as it is still going so well.

Our ED Falcon Classic was a wonderful family car. Very reliable, great on the highway run, roomy and comfortable. Personally I loved its styling, especially the fantastic 'Classic' alloy wheels.
At the time of owning it I was able to compare to a '93 VR Commodore, and the Ford won easily. Far less 'tinny' sounding, and it suffered none of our VR's electrical glitches. Economy narrowly went to the 3.8 Buick motor in the Holden, but the Aussie Ford Inline Six made up for this in effortless power, great torque and was far less thrashy.
I cannot understand why young men now buy Commy's of this vintage when the ED is a far better package... GM were apparently better at marketing Monaro doona covers and pyjamas to kids!
