Gidday, and welcome to Fordmods.

The Fairlane is a bit hard to get ready made parts for it. I know the cat back to the diff will be the same as the sedan and wagon, but the tail pipe will be unique.

I suggest you go to an exhaust shop and ask them if they can source a RedBack system to suit your car. At the same time, ask them how much it would cost for them to make up a 2.5" catback system with a rear res, and compare the prices.

Extractors, will depend on the brand. It may be better to look for a second hand set, and fit them later.

Cheers
BenJ

Thanks for the heads up Papa Smurf and BenJ - will follow up on the advice, l will ask a Ford Dealer tommorow if the wagon is the same setup, get some prices on aftermarket pipes and 2nd hand extractors and post back the result, looking foward to achieving a nice note that befits the cars road presence - I have 2 NC's on the road (will post a few pics of my rides soon as I give them both a bit of a spit n polish ) and appreciate your help.

I think you will find that a NA/NC front muffler are a tad longer then a falcon sedan. And as for the tail pipe they are different from a falcon sedan/wagon. They have there own system. From i what i remember it's about 4 - 6 inches longer then a falcon sedan.
