1982 XE Ford Fairmont ... (SOLD)

Just listed for sale this rare XE Fairmont 6 cylinder with factory 5 speed manual transmission, located on the Gold Coast, Qld.

In 1982 Ford designed the XE model to provide a better combination of space and comfort, performance and economy. The Alloy Head II engine incorporated a viscous clutch fan that reduced engine lag, a two stage carburettor that metered fuel more accurately and more efficiently and the option of a 5 speed transmission available with the 3.3 litre engine that helped Falcon's economy figures for a 6 cylinder car to be comparable with several 4 cylinder cars.

That combined with the newly introduced watts-link rear suspension system with 6 bar linkage and coil springs provided a smoother ride and safer road holding for the Falcon range.

This was Ford's marketing departments answer to the need for a big economical family car.

For sale is this unmolested example of the '82 XE Fairmont in Copper Bronze running the original 3.3 litre Alloy headed 6 cylinder and rare 5 speed manual transmission. The car has had a professional exterior repaint in 2019 with original paint in the door jambs, boot and most of the engine bay. The car has covered a genuine 209,195 km from new and is believed to be a two owner car.

The car has factory Air Conditioning (needing a regas) and power steering. The Sierra Tan interior is totally original with wear only to the driver's seat bolster. There is a Clarion radio/cassette fitted. The car is riding on excellent tyres with original hubcaps and the spare/tools. Only needing the horns replaced but otherwise will sail through roadworthy.

Used as a daily driver by the long term elderly owner to drive to his RSL Club at Tweed Heads, the car drives, brakes and handles extremely well and is ready for the next custodian to enjoy.

Located at the Gold Coast, QLD. (Ref: 5868)
