I was on the look out for a new daily. As it's main use will be running me to work in the city and back every day I was thinking something 2000ish 4cyl hatchy type thing.
That was until I saw this for sale :shock:

1994 ED Fairmont Wagon.
1 Owner, an older couple and they don't remember anyone ever sitting on the back seat, looks like it too
167,500 k's with full Ford service history (less than 10,000 a year)
Straight as a die with perfect factory paint (no lifting clear and all factory marks and bar codes) never been in any sort of accident
Mint interior trim and all electrics work
Runs on LPG and ULP perfectly and has a tow bar
I think I picked it up way too cheap and Shannon's insured it for more than twice what I paid, sight un seen. :mrgreen:

I have updated the side and rear lights, with clear front on the way, but have boxed up all the originals.

Let me know what you think.

Very nice Indeed! If you plan on keeping it dead stock, the Venetians and Sun Visor will add to the classic look! Good to see there are good quality boxcar's in mint condition still out there hiding in grandpa's garage. Well done! :mrgreen:

I have bought some kings low for the front and 2" blocks for the back, but will be keeping the stock springs.
I have had a look at wheels but think I will keep the stock alloys.
Other than lowering it a little it will be 100% stock

Reminds me of my EA sedan, before it got stolen...

You should do the Gear Selection mod, by replacing it with an EF/EL knob.

I did it to my EA and it looked and sounded a lot better than the clunky rectangular handle.

Cheers,

wow that interior is spotless, it looks as if no ones even sat in the front :shock:
my mate got a good score on a hj prem with 120,000kms a little while back, it was all original 308 sun visor, rear venetians, he bought it off the second owner though, he also got told that the original owner and the second owner had never had back seat passengers in the old girl,

Cheers guys, I am very happy with it. I hadn't thought about white walls but now that you mention it :) It does need front tyres so I think I might swap the rears to the front and get some slightly wider tyres for the back.
I have a question though.
What is the name of the colour, it isn't really silver and it isn't blue either, lol.

Cheers fairv8.
I have it booked in for Thursday for window tint, 20% rear doors and back glass, 35% front doors.

I thought I would add some of my previous Fords :)

Bought this XB when I was 17
Image

Bought this XA Coupe when I was 19, yes I had a mullet but it was 1991
Image

Then I had this XD, my son in the walker is now 13 and taller than me, lol
Image
As you can see it was kinda low, lol. Most people thought it was a TE it was sooo low at the front, I had to chop to bump stops. This is one of the few XD's I have seen tucking 14's, lol

I have also had an XE Fairmont Ghia 302, a TE Ghia that I fitted a XF EFi engine, a MkII Cortina sedan and a XF Fairmont Ghia 6cyl.

I am not new to the seen but this is my first "E" series. I did loose my way for a few years, the EA shook me and the AU broke me and while we still have a new car and this isn't my project car it is a very nice car and I have a sweet daily :)

That is in beautiful condition, what a great find! It's good to see there are still some really great examples out there.
