Photos of the last ever Falcon sedan to be built in Australia have surfaced online as Ford workers prepare to close the doors on local manufacturing.

Posted on a Ford fan Facebook page, the photographs show the bare shell of a blue Falcon on its journey down the production line at the Broadmeadows factory – a cardboard sign clearly marking it as “The Last Falcon Sedan”.

Friday marks the end of locally made Fords, and the last car – possibly that blue Falcon – is expected to come off the production line about 10am.

Roughly 600 workers will lose their jobs, many who have spent their entire working lives at the Broadmeadows and Geelong sites.

Some will retire, others will seek other opportunities but all are expected to meet at the factory to say one last goodbye.

Holden and Toyota will follow closely, also ceasing manufacturing in Australia in 2017.
