1978 Ford Fairmont Sedan
Westerville, OH 43082
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
1978 New Zealand-assembled Australian Ford Fairmont XC (upgraded XC Falcon trim) with GS hood, gas cap, grill/driving lights (I can swap with Fairmont-style squares upon request), and steering wheel. Was imported and restored in 2005 and lived most of it's stateside life in Arizona. It was outer-panel repainted in 2015 with Ford Vista Blue. It's a 302C with C4 automatic fed by a Summit 500CFM carby and lit with a Crane Cams optical distributor and MSD box. Suspension lowered by 2". 2015 refresh included new front and rear pads and new master cylinder and tires. Other upgrades includes Moroso aluminum valve covers and air cleaner assembly. If you want to, this would be easy to convert into a Mad Max yellow interceptor if that's what you wanted to do. I can help with obtaining the body kit, etc.
An interesting note--when I had the engine apart in 2015 I took a picture of the crankshaft's "302" markings and uploaded it into Wikipedia--the image you see there is from this car. Please no time wasters or tire kickers--I know this is a rare car in the U.S., but I can't handle everyone who wants to come to see it just for the novelty aspect of it.
