Best to get 4.0ltr EB, dependant on k's. Look out for rear seal oil leaks and head leaks.

I got an EA, but go an EB a bit newer is always better :), and you get ABS

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

ABS was optional AFAIK.

My brother paid around 6 for his EBII fairmont with 159,000 about 2 years ago... so you should be ok.

ABS was standard on no EB models. With the series II, only the Ghia received it standard (opt on others), and the ED Futura and Fairmont got it in '93. The next logical step - standard fitment to all models - only occured with the AU series III.
