Australia 1977: Ford Falcon dislodges long-term leader Holden

Ford Falcon

1977 is a very significant year for Australia, 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, edging out the Holden Kingswood for pole position. 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.
