Might be ex hire car, limo or could also be from a deceased estate.

Sounds too good to be true though

Yeah, never heard of a manual Fairlane. Also, are those hubcaps? I thought all Fairlanes had alloys. I know you can just change the wheels but still... One last thing: don't Fairlanes and LTD's have driving lights/fog lamps as standard?

But yeah, like everyone else said, it looks good.

i think i've seen that car! i've seen a white fairlane with a bodykit when i was in victoria.

it's really odd, because it's got not foglamps, that strange sideskirt, manual... $10,000!!!

Hmmm well i know a Manual Fairlane doesn't exist out of the factory, must be a conversion job. Secondly i'm abit iffy about this fairlane as it has EL hub caps. Why would someone put EL hub caps on a Fairlane when it comes with factory alloys which are definitly better than EL hub caps. Also this Fairlane is an NF not an EF but thats being padantic.

Oh yeah the reason for my doubts is that in the paper an un-named dealer listed a Fairlane Sportsman with a factory 5 speed. We went to check it out and low and behold it was a friggin auto.

maybe its done 1,085,000 km..

I know the "5 speed" thing is used sometimes by dealers to gain interest in buyers and hope they settle for a Auto.. its always "oh it was a typo.." yeh uhuh..

If you want 100 customers to vist your show room simply advertise a "6 speed 5.7L VTII Calias" for a average price and people will knock your door down. Of course they will shoot you if you don't have it.
