NCII Fairlaine Ghia - Should I?

Today I sold my trusty old camry in the quest for something bigger. At work, there is a 1992 NC2 Fairlane Ghia V8 for sale. I haven't seen the car yet, but i'm keen to have a look. Its green. Its got all the standard ghia goodies. He's got it for sale for $3500 so I dunno what condition its in, but its a canberra car. I was wondering whether this would be the right price for a 12 year old car. I think it probabbly is considering its a V8 Fairlane Ghia. By the way, if anyone has any pics of an NC fairlaine, could you please email it to me. Thanks in advance

First thing: Congratulations on getting rid of the Camry :)

The Fairlane sounds good, especially the price

Not sure. He never listed it in the add, but I'll check it out anyway. Those Windsors are pretty good engines? I've never owned a V8 ford before. Last thing I wanna do is go from a car that ran without missing a beat, to something thats gonna cost heaps to maintain.

I never thought I'd get rid of it. It was a great reliable car, but it wasn't a ford. 280,000 k's on the clock, going strong. Apart from the rattles and squeaks and oil leaks and water loss and this and that. Top car

Dont buy it, i know someone that has a V8 fairlane, and it nothing but a money pit.

Just for fun, go and get some random prices for parts and also thermostat housing, and a couple of heater, bypass and radiator hoses and tell me what you come up with.

FORD should be well and truely REAMED for parts prices on that model car.

Buy another model ford, stay clearer of those model fairlanes.

erm correct me if im wrong... but isnt an NC fairlane built on the same year's falcon wagon chassis? doesnt an NC fairlane run exactly the same I6 or 5.0 V8 engine as it's falcon equivalent? so forgive me if im confused here... but how exactly do these spare parts differ in price compared to if you got an EB / ED falcon?

arent they the same exact goddam parts?????????

Re: NCII Fairlaine Ghia - Should I?

My inlaws have a 6 Cyl concorde and as far as I know, the car can't be faulted. Hasn't missed a beat. But then again, you get good cars and you get bad cars in every range. I appreciate the info. Its good to know what peoples gripes are, so you can fire the questions along those lines.

I'm seeing the car at 1pm tommorrow. I'm going to ask a few more questions.

303,000 k's, has a noise coming from the engine when idling. Body is scratched, faded, the trim is cracked. Interior is ok. The wheel centres are missing. Reasonable tyres. Thinking I will keep my money and look for something else.
