A pair of blue-blooded Ford collectors have shelled out a combined $353,000 to own the final Australian-built Ford models that can be registered for road use.

Victorian Ford enthusiasts John Bradbury and Mark Jeffs snapped up the final Falcon, Falcon Ute, Territory and Falcon Sprint produced by Ford's Broadmeadows plant at an auction on Saturday.

The cars fetched roughly double their market value, with top billing going to the final Falcon XR6 Sprint, number 500 of 500, which fetched $122,000.

Proceeds from the auction will go toward community projects in Victoria.

Ford will divide the money between a "Give Where You Live" corporate support scheme in Geelong, as well as helping fund science projects in regional high schools.

The vehicles represent the second-to-last examples of their kind. Ford says the final Falcon, Ute and Territory will never be sold or registered, and will instead be displayed publicly to celebrate the brand's manufacturing heritage.
