78 Ford Fairmont Station Wagon

This is my 78 Ford Fairmont Station Wagon. Its my daily driver work car. I have had it for going on 5 years now. I pulled the original engine, transmission, and rear differential. The engine trans and 8.8 diff came out of a 89 Mustang. It is a 5.0 with a 5 speed and a 3.73 gear. It also has Mustang Pony Wheels on it. Here is a short video of me goofing off on my way home from work this past fall. Its nothing special just an old work car.

THE INSURANCE COMPANY (LIBERTY MUTUAL) PAID OFF THE ORIGINAL OWNER AND SOLD IT TO MY UNCLE (AUGIE'S BODY & SALVAGE) IN SHIRLEY LONG ISLAND NEW YORK. MY UNCLE DID ALL THE WORK AT A COST OF $1,025.00 TO BRING THIS FAIRMONT BACK TO SHOW ROOM CONDITION. MY UNCLE PASSED AWAY 8 YEARS AGO BUT MY AUNT DIDN'T WANT TO PART WITH THE CAR. THE CAR WAS STARTED A FEW TIMES A WEEK AND MOVED AROUND THE BARN TO KEEP IT IN SHAPE MECHANICALLY. FINALLY LAST YEAR MY AUNT DECIDED TO LET ME TAKE OWNERSHIP.

THIS CAR LOOKS LIKE IT JUST ROLLED OUT OF THE SHOW ROOM. MY FAIRMONT WAS RECENTLY INSPECTED BY A N.Y. STATE INSPECTION STATION & NOW HAS A FRESH N.Y. STATE INSPECTION STICKER ON THE WINDSHEILD. SINCE I ALSO OWN 2 NEWER VEHICLES THIS IS NOT MY EVERY DAY DRIVER BUT IT COULD BE. I DRIVE IT ONLY A FEW TIMES (MILES) A WEEK. WITH A PUMP OR TWO IT STARTS RIGHT UP AND DRIVES STRAIGHT AND SMOOTH. SINCE MY FAIRMONT WAS STORED INSIDE SINCE NEW IT HAS NO RUST ON THE BODY OR CHASSIS. MY FAIRMONT IS NOT A WRECK, RUST BUCKET OR LEAKER! THE BRAKES AND POWER STEARING ARE GREAT.

SINCE THIS CAR WAS ALWAYS STORED-PARKED INSIDE THERE IS NO SUN DAMAGE IN OR OUT. THERE ARE NO AGE OR SUN CRACKS IN THE DASH OR STEERING WHEEL. THE PAINT LOOKS LIKE NEW. I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THIS VEHICLE BEING INSPECTED ON MY PROPERTY BY YOU OR ANY MECHANIC YOU HIRE. MY FAIRMONT IS BEAUTIFUL AND IS BEING SOLD IN AS IS CONDITION.

1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look -EricTheCarGuy
Many of you have been asking me about Fairmont videos so I thought I would make this one where I take a closer look at what I have to work with. I also talk about some of my plans for this car going forward. I think I have a really nice 'shell' to work with. I have my work cut out for me that's for sure, but as I say in the video, that will just make for more interesting videos. For now, I think I'll drive it. It's a good car after all. A few minor issues, but nothing to really worry about. I may do some of the repairs such as the inner tie rod in an upcoming video. I just need to work out the alignment when I'm done. Looks like an easy job though, easier than some of the other power steering rack stuff I've done. Anyway, enjoy the video. Here's some links.

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Gordon Tronson In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as "Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all your naughty bits tingle.
