The Ford Falcon XD Ghia ESP (European Sports Pack) is a performance meets luxury variant of the Ford Falcon produced by Ford Australia between 1979 and 1982, which was the second iteration of the third generation of Falcon models. The ESP package was introduced to cater to the demand for performance-oriented Falcons. It featured a range of upgrades over the standard XD Falcon including the option of the famed 5.8-litre 351ci V8, upgraded Bilstein suspension, disc brake upgrade, special interior upholstery, six pack dash, unique exterior pinstripe, alloy wheels and more. Today, well-maintained examples of the XD ESP are sought after by collectors and enthusiasts due to their relative rarity and historical significance in the Australian automotive landscape.

This rare and unique matching numbers V8 example is ideal for a purist who is looking for a very original un-restored survivor car that is still turn key and ready to be enjoyed. The car is presented in its original Onyx Black form wearing all the bumps and bruises from its life, and yet still is an impressively well preserved and solid rust free example. Features include foglights, factory Onyx black paint, factory red and gold stripe, Bathurst Globe alloy wheels, black sheel seats with unique strips, air conditioning (working), Pioneer cassette player with AM/FM radio, power windows and more.
