Yes, you are seeing double. Two factory XW Ford Fairmonts in Imperial Burgundy, both 302 V8s and now both GS Replicas. Both now for sale and available for inspection at our Sydney Showroom.
It's more than likely that these two Fairmonts went down the Ford Production line at Broadmeadows together. Back in 1970, Ford would prepare a batch of cars to be painted in a particular colour. This would most likely include a range of cars including Falcons and Fairlanes all destined to be painted in the same colour. In this case the batch was to be painted in the striking colour of Imperial Burgundy. This second of the two Fairmonts for sale was ordered with the Dark Saddle trim.
The car received a full nut & bolt restoration 7 years ago and has covered a mere 2,677 miles since. The Fairmont has been tastefully optioned with a full GS Rallye Pack with GS striping, GS chrome hubcaps and GS spec dash with rim blow GS steering wheel. Even the stainless has been repolished by a jeweller and there are receipts for all work completed.
Mechanically the XW is running a stroker 347 Windsor that makes 450hp with the aid of a Scat crank, ported World Racing heads, Roller Rockers, Wade solid cam and lifters, an Edelbrock Victor Junior manifold, extractors and a dual 2.5" exhaust. The factory 4 speed Top Loader gearbox has been fully rebuilt and power goes to the ground through a 9" diff with 3.5:1 LSD gears. The complete original matching numbers 302 Windsor engine is supplied with the car.
On the inside the XW has been re-trimmed in factory Dark Saddle trim. A GS steering wheel, GS dash with 6,000 RPM tacho and 140 MPH speedo plus correct Fuel, Oil and Temp gauges have been fitted. And a working clock and original functional AM Superfringe radio are fitted. New seat belts, hood lining, carpets ... nothing has been left unrestored. You'll also note that all rubbers have been replaced and all door mechanisms rebuilt and cad plated.
The XW is riding on correct 14" steel rims with mint GS chrome hubcaps and excellent white wall tyres. The boot has also been fully detailed with new rubber boot mat and spare. The underside of the XW is also super tidy with the brakes and suspension fully rebuilt and sorted plus a new fuel tank installed.
The car comes with a letter of verification from Ford, a receipt folder and an original set of keys.
