JASON RACHELE

FORD XM FALCON COUPE

MAR 2017

THIS gorgeous XM Falcon coupe is Jason Rachele’s first build, and he knocked it right out of the park.

Jason knew he wanted big rubber on the rear, so he got mate Con Kreskas to sort it. Con toiled away after hours for the next three years, and the XM now sits on a three-quarter chassis with a four-link rear and QA1 coil-overs, with tubs to accommodate the 20x10in Intro Twisted Vistas out back.

Joe Cundari took care of the body and custom-mix metallic grey paint, and the results speak for themselves. Up front the Falcon sports a 351-cuber with Ford Motorsport heads, crank and rods, Arias pistons and a Crower solid stick, good for somewhere north of 500hp.
