Due to many verying reasons i am putting an expression of interest on my 1982 XE Fairmont Ghia.


The shell has been taken right back to metal and is currently in 2k primer, the shell is reasonably straight but has a few minor imperfections that need attention, like a few small dings etc.

The car comes with 4 litres of the new BF toxic 2k paint which is that greeny yellow colour (looks hot as)

The interior is in absolutely immaculate condition and is XF fairmont ghia interior including the roof lining etc.

All the electrical options are there and the windows work very well and are quick to come down and go up, i have receipts somewhere saying they were replaced with new motors some time ago

The car comes complete however the exterior trimmings etc are removed for paint job and are in the boot.

Pending on offer for price the car will also come with BA xr6 17 inch wheels aswell.

The engine is as follows:

Imported Ford 400 cui V8 (bored 40 thou, giving roughly 410 cubes, which is roughly 6.7 litres)

* The engine has been bored 40 thou, fresh hone marks etc.
Dished Pistons, Brand new rings+ bearings in the box.
* Crank has been linished, the whole bottom end has been balanced
* New in the box Comp Cams 275deh camshaft
* FELPRO Full gasket kit, brand new
* Gear Drive assembly
*Edelbrock performer manifold (very very hard to find for this engine)
* 302 closed chamber heads that have had massive amounts of porting done to them, i took it to a local head rebuilder and he said they have had extensive work done to them, and the only thing that could be done would be to modify them for 4V valves.
* I also have a genuine FOMOCO bellhousing to adapt a C4 to this engine, as the 400's have a c6 pattern. this item is genuine. to get an aftermarket version of this from other sources is worth over a grand itself (from rod shop/ whoever make bellhousings.)
* Engine mounts/ hardware to bolt engine into X series ford.
* C10 Auto gearbox in excellent condition with as new 3000 rpm Stall converter

The car also comes with other bits and pieces that I have probably missed etc, this car will be an awesome cruises/ burnout machine when its complete however due to time and money and other reasons I may have to part with my baby,

I would appreciate it if people could comment on a rough idea on how much this would be worth, it owes me a great deal of money, but like any car/project sometimes you just have to cut your losses.

Cheers John.
