1991 Ford Falcon EB Sedan and Wagon

The EB facelift hardly altered the apearance of the EA, however the big news for V8 fans was the re-introduction of the V8 (available for the first time since 1983). The Mustang sourced 5.0 liter "Windsor" V8 developed a respectable 165kW. The front suspension was further improved over the EA, as Ford upgraded the springs, introduced gas shock absorbers, negative camber and increased castor front end geometry - the end result being far better handling. Spotting the difference between an EA and EB can be a little difficult. Look for the placement of the Ford badge - on the EB it was relocated to the grille. From 1991 there were new wheel trims, and the reverse lights were relocated to either side of the number plate. Improvements to the suspension consisted of gas-pressurised shock absorbers, uprated mounting bushes, revised front geometry and higher geared steering, making the car much more refined.
1991 Holden VP Commodore

The VP Commodore was always going to be a face-lifted VN, however there were considerable and detailed improvements made over the latter model. Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) was introduced, fitted as standard equipment on the Calais and Commodore SS and optional across the range, the system being adapted from the long wheelbase VQ. On the exterior the Holden engineers kept changes to a minimum, the futuristic looking clear acrylic cover running across the length and at the top of the grille of the Executive model always being contentious (others models used a color coded version).
