EBII or ED?

Hi all,
I am considering trading up to an EBII Fairmont '93 flavour, 113000 km's, red with chrome mags, 4.0 litre MPFI and the usual Fairmont extra's (Auto) $11000 or a '93 ED Fairmont, standard @143000km's $14000

I am parting with my trusty EA I GL wagon, and would appreciate any advice on which would be the best buy. Iam leaning toward the EBII.

Far as I know there wasn't much difference, well not $3000's worth, bit of chrome. You could do a few things to your car for $3k
Comes down to personal choice but, if they both drive nice, are tidy and comparable, go the EBII. Check out ABS, i think its worth while.

Although obvios check out the gaskets/Rad/water pump (any thing that could help kill the head) cond &history first, if you can.

Good luck

Its known to be pesimistic, and have obmissions, or wronge items, in "standard equipment" section when you click 'specifications' (on left toolbar). Good for a read but

Thanks for your advice Papa Smurf. Seems the EBII might be the ticket, esp with the lower milage. Will certainly check the head.

Cheers

The single reason I prefer the ED is its inclusion of ABS as standard. However, a price difference that great is hard to ignore. If you need to buy soon, then the EB makes a good case for itself.

You want to see some of the prices for fords in NZ. Last time I looked it was like 22k for an au forte. In NZ you dont see a ford or holden as every second car on the road
