This baby's parts are always in demand. In fact some of the Holdens run this 4.1 alloy head!!!

Holden + Ford = Folden

IIRC, both Cortina and Falcon were available with Crossflow 4.1 motor. Could be any one of them.

EDIT :
I think its Ford Cortina Mark III.

I am convinced that this is a Ford Cortina. The Side indicators placement and the grille is a giveaway here.

Can't be a Falcon XB, where are the bonnet scoops?

Could be a Holden Kingswood?

May be a Cortina Mk3...

A station wagon, yet one that has character! That rain-dropped Team-BHP sticker in Australia looks swell, thanks for making my day
