Buying a EB 5.0L???

I'm thinking of buying a EB Fairmont 5.0L Auto.

Is there any problems with this model apart from your normal wear & tear?

I'm guessing around the $7000 mark is a reasonable price for a low km one?

Anything you whish to add feel free.

Cheers,
Steve

Try and get a Series II. Diffs can be noisy and some might have a p/s shudder.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

Except for auto I can't think of anything thats troublesome that wouldn't happen to a newer model.

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Thanks guys. Good to know there is no major problems with them.

Hopefully, I'll have a look at a couple over the weekend.

Did they ever come out with manual box?
