I am advertising this car for my mate. The car is located near Shepparton in Northern Victoria.

For sale is my mate's 1978 Ford Fairlane. The car has a mild 351 small port Cleveland V8 with a 650 vac Holley sitting on top. The motor was fully rebuilt by the previous owner. It is running an FMX auto trans which is only 1000Kms old. It also has a 9 inch LSD diff.

The car recently has had the interior retrimmed to suit the massive sunroof. The car was previously owned by a local mechanic and he had too many toys so my mate brought the car. The mechanic fitted the sunroof to the car. It can be opened by undoing the ragtop roof.

The car has all the Fairlane bits standard. Power steer air con but the air is disconnected . Mechanically the car is very strong. No oil leaks and it runs well. I am not sure what stereo is in it but I will list more info when I get it. You are also welcome to message me with any questions.

This car is sold with no rego. It is advisable for a potential buyer to view the car and even test drive before bidding. It is also advisable to actually see this car as it is pretty unique with its sunroof.

The car has a twin exhaust system and has a good note but is no rocket. Its just a really nice cruiser. The paint colour is matt black and is in reasonable condition however there are a few crows feet developing on the boot.

My mate is selling this as he also is getting too many toys and this car has to go.

Please no offers to swap for anything either unless its a Ferrari.  

The previous owner( who was a mechanic) owned the car for over 20 years where it was garaged the whole time. The only spot of rust is a very small spot in one of the doors. The rest of the car is very clean. The previous owner also fitted a roll bar to the car to add the strength to the roof for the sunroof.

Check out my other auction if you are looking for a toy. My mate is also selling his Yamaha Banchee.
