XD Falcon: Ford’s accidental racing hero
To be true blue is one of the greatest honours an Australian can hope for, and its one which Dick Johnson and his ‘Tru-Blu’ XD Falcon truly earned. It’s also one which nearly didn’t come to be.
In 1980 Ford Australia had no intention to race or homologate its new XD Falcon, and Dick Johnson had just collided with a huge rock which had tumbled onto the track while he was leading the Bathurst 1000, wiping out his home-built XD Falcon. So the story of how it did is a classic.
