Item description

We brought this car off the original owner in about 2005. The car does not haveits original engine, I believe the original owner purchased a change overengine, as everyone did back in the day, when the original got a few km’sunder its belt. The car has had gas put on it (dual fuel) by the original ownerand i have left it on as I was going to use it as a tow car for my other cars, but never did. I have taken the original gas hat off and capped the line as Idon’t use the gas. The car is a 1978 XC Fairmont (update) running a 5.8L(Factory T code), 3 speed auto (FMX) and a 9 inch LSD rear. It is well optionedwith the sort after GS rally pack, power windows, power steering, airconditioning, cassette deck etc. The car is rare in that it is a rally packFairmont without the fussy GXL option. This car is as close to a GT as you canget in the XC model The car is not restored so is showing signs of its age andit is not perfect, I like to describe it as a good old honest survivor. Theseats and carpet are original and I have not changed them because I don’tbelieve you can get the original fabric and carpet and I would prefer to have itoriginal and warn, than have the new fabric that doesn’t match. I had somerust repaired when we first got it hence 80% of the car got fresh paint. Thecolour match is ok but not perfect. There is a small leak in the power steerpump, but I have a new pump that i have had repaired and have not put it in.Rear wheel bearings are a little noisy. Air con needs gassing. The air cleanershown in the photos does not go with the car as it is off another car i have.The original gas hat would go with the car.
