Ford Meteor (GA/GB). 1981–5 (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan. F/F, 1490 cm³ (I4 OHC). Australian name for booted first-generation Ford Laser, with slightly different nose, which could be found on some Japanese-market Mazda Familias. Intended as a temporary Cortina replacement before the Ford Telstar (GC) was launched. Never really filled the niche as two 1·5-litre engine options were offered (standard and twin carburettor), rather than the two-litre starting point of the Australian Cortina. Identical to Laser mechanically.

Manufacturing location: Homebush, NSW, Australia

Marque: Ford | Model: Ford Meteor | Predecessor: Ford Taunus 80 | Successor: Ford Meteor (1985–95)
