Ride: SERIES 2 FAIRMONT GHIA

Location: perth western australia
WA, Australia

heres some for the old boys.. int the early 70's ford exported xw/xy's to south africa. here we have the south african fairmont gt's.. just arrived at my work ( car importers) . we gotta quarantine them before release to the owners.. also this week got a 56 f100 and a 34 pickup compleate with its sidevalve v8.. it was a tow car at bonneville.

the fairmont gts have all the gt bits ours had. 351-4v donks, fmx autos, one has a top loader.. 9 inch diffs and the 6 leaf heavy duty suspension and the long range tanks... just about blew a load when they came in... the xy's even have the ALUMINIUM shaker scoop assembly..


enjoy-- i did

the SA gts had extra welds on the shock towers too(looks messy thats how ya pick it).. and to my knowledge the rear lights were reversed making the brakes on the bottom but those pics tell otherwise. also the reflector on the brakelight is a SA thing too.

I would like to know if in fact these cars are fitted out as FAIRMONTS & info on VIN's would be good.

One other thing Did we have FAIRMONT GT's?
I have a book from the Marque Classic series title
FORD FALCON GT 1967-2004 & I will read up on it to see if any info listed on these FAIRMONTS

Im pretty sure I remember seeing that these cars are not for sale. They are private importers. Bad luck guys.
