The Fairmont

Re: The Fairmont

Yup, that's what it is, an XC. Either 1976 or 1977 I think. Its not an update as they had a Blue Oval badge on the grille and boot lid I think in 1978. Nice one! Not for sale is it? (hehehe!).

Re: The Fairmont

Nice looking car.
Amazing to see a lot older cars with such low K's out there. I've seen non taxi BA's with more K's than that.

Congratulations. You are still alive. Most people are so ungrateful to be alive, but not you. Not anymore.

Re: The Fairmont

I would take a guess that it is a late 77-76 XC Fairmont. Going by the silver grille it is a 4.1? 6 cly with a borgwaner auto and same rear. It is great to see that ithas been well looked after all these years. Will it be left to you ?
