I've got an AU Falcon (or so the badge on the back says.)

I've got no idea what kind of Falcon though (Whether it be Forte, Futura, etc.).

This is what I do know:
It's a series 1
It doesn't say "Falcon" or anything on the dash
It has power windows in the front, but none in the back
It has a clock on the dash

I know this probably isn't the right forum, but I couldn't quite figure out which one to use. My question sorta fits in with this topic though.

The big tell tale sign, is the grille.. If it has a silver piece through the middle of a small cutout, it would be a Futura. With front only power windows, i'd have to agree with twr7cx.

My mistake, of course, the Au's had that tiny little clock built into the dash.
I was thinking of the clocks like the Fairmonts have, the analogue ones in the centre of the dash up high.

shouldn't you be able to chase it back off the vin/ engine plates. i'm sure there has to be some registry of what is what.

the easiest way to tell is the model number on the VIN plate.

grilles can be changed. trims can be changed. model numbers dont change.

Thanks guys.

I forgot to mention that it has a body kit. Everything (hood, rear, front, grille, sides, spoiler, lights) has been changed.

I'll check the model number in the light tomorrow.

Thanks for your help everyone.
