Hi Guys!

Looking for a Fairlane Concorde (or FBT).

Just wondering what the definate ID rules are.

I have seen one for sale and one thing I have noticed is it has the 'concorde' sticker on the RHS of the front bumper and NOT on the pinstripe behind the rear door.

It has the Tickford engine, It has 2 tone grey leather and it has the crosswire silver 16" alloys.
Somehow though it doesnt look like it has the Tickford Sports suspension, seems to ride at standard height.

Could someone give me a list of things I should check for please?
Build is 9/98 .

(wasnt sure which forum to post this, can mods please move it if incorrect?)

Well I couldn't wait any longer. I phoned Ford.
here is the run down.

680 were manufactured between May 1998 - February 1999.

Only in 5 Colours:
    Navy Blue
    Oxford Green
    Sparkling Burgundy
    Alaskan Frost (silver)
    Sillouhette (black)

Edit:
500 built August - September 1997
These were limited to just three colours
    Navy Blue
    Oxford Green
    Sparkling Burgundy

This run had the gold alloy 5 star wheels and the gold badges and striping.

The later model Concordes had the BBS style Alloys in silver for the two new colours. Arctic Frost (silver) and Sillhouette (Black)
/edit.

I6 162kW Tickford engine & ECU
5.0L V8 (Option)
Tickford Touring Suspension > springs/ linkages/ stabiliser bars/ shockers.
3.45 LSD
EL GT Momo Steering wheel (wood & leather)

Mako Grey Leather interior - Charcoal grey inserts.
Gathered leather door trim.
Grey Dashboard with 2 tone sections.
Woodgrain highlights on door trims, Gear shifter base.
'Concorde' decal on bumper under drivers headlight.
'Concorde' decal on body length pinstripe at rear behind side 1/4 window

Extra information gathered:
Main difference between 'Concorde' and SVP (Special Vehicle Pack) Fairlanes -
Same options as Concorde plus:
    Cappucino Beige leather option

    LTD Electronic drivers seat.



This is from Ford head office in Campbellfield VIC.

he never actually said anything about the compliance plate, He got codes from the VIN number I gave him.

(I am checking out a Concorde for sale atm)
