Thanks to Paul I can share with you official models data for Australia in 1977, in actual fact a very significant year for this market, as it is the first year since the launch of the Holden brand in 1948 that a Holden does not top the annual sales charts. The Ford Falcon is responsible for this historical event, selling 54,506 units this year and edging out the Holden Kingswood for pole position at 53,934 sales. The Holden Torana/Sunbird rounds up the podium, followed by the Datsun 180B/200B and Toyota Corona/Celica. The Ford Cortina, Holden Gemini , Chrysler Galant/Sigma, Toyota Corolla and Datsun 120Y are also successful.

    Ford Cortina MK4 was by far the most modern of all,with its boxy European styling.
