Haha we had a nissan xf falcon (actually made by nissan I think) not sure how many there are out there,they could be quite rare one day, ours was a ute, driving it you can't tell the difference between the ford and the nissan-just as good a work horse as the ford.

The Nissan (XF) ute was simply a rebadge of the XF ute. Reason you can't tell the difference is that it was a FORD.

They were done from new. Ford got the Mavrick (Patrol).

Alot of rebadging was done through the 90's.

Toyota Camry - Holden Apollo.
Toyota Corolla - Holden Nova.
Dunnydoor - Lexcen.
Nissian Pulsar - Holden Astra.

Mazda to Ford (but Ford being part owned of Mazda.

The list goes on.

Nissan got the Panel Van also I think, and don't forget the Pintara, it was also sold with a Ford badge. Corsair or some such name.
