How rare is this?! Can you imagine the fun of walking into Jefferson Ford back in late 1971 and ordering this beauty. Mr. Salesman ... I'll have the Fairmont. Let's option it with the big 351 K code Cleveland and mate it to the smooth 3 speed FMX Cruisomatic transmission with T-Bar shifter and console. Gee I love the look of that GS Rally pack with sports instrumentation, GT steering wheel, those wonderful GS stripes down the side and the GS chrome full wheel covers. But don't worry about the radio. I want to listen to the wonderful burble of that V8, not any disc jockey prattle!
You get the drift, this was one special 'special order' XY. Fast forward to 2017 and this rare Fairmont was treated to a full restoration by it's current owner. The car was bare metalled and repainted again in stunning factory 2 Pak Wild Violet. New reflective orange GS Rally stripes were placed down her flanks.
The black interior was treated to a freshen up including a retrim to the seats, restoration of the gauges and refinishing of the original GS steering wheel. The matching numbers 351 2V Cleveland has been rebuilt with $15,000 in receipts. Transmission, diff are all reconditioned. Brakes, steering and suspension have also been rebuilt.
And the result, we think you'll agree, is one smart unit. In fact this Wild Violet XY GS is a timeless beauty that shows how flexible Ford was back in the '70s when you could order a car that truly suited your individual requirements and tastes.
Three owners from new. Comes with a Ford letter of verification and a photo and receipt file for restoration works. Located in our Kingsgrove, NSW showroom for your immediate inspection. Call Mike Selby on 0414 278 604 to make your appointment. (Ref. 5199)
