1978 Ford Fairmont Station Wagon

This 1978 Ford Fairmont is for sale at our Louisville showroom. The Fairmont was the beginning car for Ford's “Fox" platform which spanned over 15+ models from 1977 to 1993. The Fairmont is known for being a dependable and cost efficient soap box style car that shuttled small American families around to school and work in the late 70s and early 80. This particular Fairmont wagon is far from your regular factory fox. It rolled into the showroom 84,753 miles on the odometer and a 302CID v8 muscling it along. A recently rebuilt C4 transmission with 4,000 miles puts the power to the 8.8 rear end with Ranger axles. The suspension on this car has been well sorted with lowering springs in the front and rear along with 2 inch drop spindles from a 96 Mustang. The ride quality is superb and it feels super tight around the corners. Brakes have also recently been gone through. A new Flowmaster exhaust gives the 302 a nice deep tone down low and wails up high. The yellow exterior has held up well over the years with few blemishes. The Tan vinyl interior is in wonderful shape and has been Dynamatted to keep out road noise. The underside has been undercoated with POR-15 keeping the frame rust free as well. A/C works perfectly and will keep you cool even on the hottest days. Brand new Michelin tires mounted on Bullit style wheels give this Fairmont a mean stance and it looks just right!
