Ride: XE 351, EL Fairmont Ghia 5 Litre

Location: Newcastle
NSW, Australia

recently come across a el fairmont, with a twist, has been optioned up with a factory V8, and tickford kit with ticky spoiler and XR mags.
its now mine, and slowly starting to mod it out.
got 20s, clear tail lights, currently has my old 18s on it to tidy it up a tad.
so far interior wise, have bought a fairlane rear seat, it has been modified to suit sedan style.
stereo is basic, jsut the head deck an a sub in boot, nothing special yet.
motor wise, already has lukey extractors, high flow cats, and a 2 into 1 2 1/2 inch exhaust.
has had some small work done, not quite sure wat, all i know is a slightly bigger cam, and all new gaskits.
bodywise, strait as, jsut needs paint.


My plans:
V8 Manual conversion (as soon as i can find one)
full respray, same facotry colour
20s put on.
work the motor abit, nothing major for now.
slam it, currently thinking the usel king springs.
get from cats back customised with dual exhaust all the way.
full stereo, speakers, amps, dvd head rests "maybe", dvd flipscreen etc, possible boot install. and have it all retrimmed to match colour wise.


well that it for now, its a start :)
will update and post up pics

Nice EL. I have an EF Fairmont V8 that is not a Ghia.

Unfortunately I use to own a 6cyl EL Fairmont Ghia will all the Tickford goodies so I know exactly what I'm missing out on. Dam i miss premium sound.

Good luck with the car.

The V8 was an option all the way from GLi to Fairlane Ghia.
