In 1971 Ford had the Australian luxury car market sewn up with the full sized ZD Fairlane 500. Big on the outside and roomy on the inside. Powered by the trusty 302 Windsor V8 with column cruisomatic this was a big car, perfect for the big family as a cruiser in the days when a family holiday meant squeezing all the kids into the back seat, packing the huge boot with all the gear and heading to the beach, the bay or to the snow for the school holidays. Not flying overseas like we're all doing nowadays.
For sale is this stunning totally original Track Red with Saddle trim 1971 ZD Fairlane. This is as original as they come. Mostly original paint with original trim. Only 85,954 miles on the odometer. And all in excellent condition for a car that's nearly 50 years old. The matching numbers 302 is still purring away under that big bonnet. The factory optioned integrated Air Conditioning is still in place and ready to cool you down. The car has factory power steering, and the factory Superfringe radio is there to entertain. Even the original boot mat is still there.
Mechanically the car runs beautifully. The suspension has been re bushed and the brakes serviced. So she's ready to hit the highways and the byways immediately. Period accessories have survived with left and right side weather shields. Even an Air Conditioning service sticker in the glove box has survived since 1974. And the hubcaps, white wall tyres, chrome and glass are all in top condition, a further testament to how well looked after this Fairlane is. This car will take you back to the good old days when family road trips were long and loud, dusty and tiring but oh so much fun.
Being one of only 16 Track red ZD Fairlanes built this is a rare opportunity to put some luxury back into your garage. This beautiful ZD Fairlane can be supplied with NSW roadworthy or NSW club registration so you can get down to the fun stuff straight away. In our Kingsgrove, Sydney showroom for your inspection.
