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.

The Ford Fairmont is a compact car produced by Ford Motor Company for the
North American market. Introduced for the 1978 model year, the Fairmont was
produced in several bodystyles until it was replaced by the Ford Tempo for
the 1984 model year. The Fairmont was the successor to the Maverick; its
Mercury counterpart was the Mercury Zephyr, which replaced the Comet.
The Fairmont and Zephyr marked the introduction of the long-running Ford
Fox platform, used for a wide variety of later models. Those most closely
related to the Fairmont included the 1980--1982 Ford Thunderbird, the
1981--1982 Ford Granada, the 1979--1993 Ford Mustang (and 1979--1986 Mercury
Capri), and the 1982--1987 Lincoln Continental.
