Well most FM members dont know this but my EB Fairmont Ghia 5.0L has been financally written off :( .
So after serching for 5 weeks & looking at some fords that were so crap their Owners should be shot & dealing with the sharks(dealers) out there I finally found a car that is in good nic & has been well looked after.
NC series 2 FAIRLANE GHIA 5.0L.
The radiator support is gone in the EB.
Look at this post for the damage to the EB

Well I was hunting a DC LTD, Lane or EF upwards but as mentioned previousley all of the EF's upward were crap.
I saw this EF Fairmont Ghia they wanted $3500, when I saw it I said straight out no as the wood grain was rough, leather was all craked & body condition was poor.
Next a EL XR6, interior was poor seats torn & front bar damage.
I could keep going on about the cars out in the market but I'm happy with the Lane.

I think the NA-NC Fairlanes are the best looking Fairlanes ever. Especially when they are scrapin on the ground and loaded with 351 plus cubes!
Good score there ben_daui!
A Mate of mine picked up a mint tickford 5.0 NC in Cobalt. We're going to EFI 460 it 8-)
Hey and with such a long nose there's plenty of room out front of the engine for turbo's. :wink:

For a start it won't have half the problems EF/ELs have, next it is a V8 so it will be rare to see the heads off, next it isn't a dime a dozen Falcon and best of all most non Fordophiles do not know it shares most parts with a Falcon, unlike NF/NL or BA-BF(worse) where I know some non Ford people thought they were Falcons from the front, and Ford wonder why Fairlane sales are down?

Guessing it isn't a late NCII "Ben_Daui" as the body moulds are colour coded like LTD's, that would be one of the early things I would get done.

Nice buy :D

Nice fairlane ben. Get some wet&dry, prepsol, a can of plastic primer, primer, cardinal red and clear topcoat and slap it on those bump strips. What sort of interior does it have? Velour or leather?
