Very regretful sale of my baby!
What we have here is a very rare factory XC Fairmont Hardtop. There were only 648 XC Fairmont Hardtops built and this one is rarer still as it left the factory with a 351, auto, air con and with a brilliant Neptune Blue duco.
Now with its third owner, in my hands the car has retained a factory appearance but has had substantial upgrades to engine and running gear and now sports a fire breathing 380 cube cleveland putting out 312kw at the rear wheels, a Tremec T56 6 speed transmission, 4:11 diff gears which combined with the 6 speed means that the car sits on 2300 revs at 120klms/hr all day long. Thousands of dollars have been spent on the rear end and suspension set up with Diff Technics and Heasman Steering in Sydney including Bilstein shocks all around.
The car performs effortlessly on long cruises and has neck snapping acceleration when required (on private roads of course!).
I have put the matching numbers engine and gearbox to the side and these are included with the sale. Also included with the sale are the original (restored) factory wheels with NOS caps.
The body of this old girl has to be seen to be believed. It had very minimal rust prior to being painted and has never been in an accident. Anyone who knows XA/XB/XC coupes knows that the condition of the body is of paramount importance when it comes to buying a coupe.
Most of the jewellery on the car has been replaced with rare as rocking horse poo factory NOS parts including headlights, indicators and grille. The interior is day one original and unrestored and has a beautiful patina and factory smell.
This car is a joy to own and drive being as reliable and tight as a new car. It has taken me interstate twice and all over NSW without a single issue.
All the hard work has been done, hop in and enjoy!
