1978 Ford Fairmont XC Hardtop Coupe

Built and owned by the original Owner & Builder of the Top Show Panel Van in the 70's "Total Eclipse" - Mark B who is a perfectionist and has built numerous Ford Falcon GT sedans and coupes. This is my personal car only finished last year.

78 XC Ford Fairmont Coupe. It's a Ford verifed as 1 of only 2 in this combo and the other is gone to car heaven as far as I believe (have also a ford verification letter seperate to one in the photos regarding this).

Combo that car is plated, if it was a XA or XB, would be a GT but as we know no GT's were built in the XC. 

Rarer than most Cobras as most were 302's or 351 autos and this car is plated as a very desirable combo.

Factory T = 351, L = 4 speed manual, 9 = snow white and interior Z = Ochre

Have 100s of shots of full build of car including all the bare metalling and panels replaced. Was a very good coupe to start with not a rusted crap heap. Will not be wasting my time sending people all these shots as i've sold enough cars over the years and know about time wasters but I will show to person who buys it and will gladly give a full copy of the build. 

Built as concourse as I wanted to do it plus a few tweaks: painted bumpers and bonnet inserts, GS grill and working driving lights with correct switch placement and genuine loom (have its original complete fairmont grill complete with rectangular headlights and surrounds to go with car), holley carby and manifold (have its original carby and manifold to go with car), Performance Challenger Mags (have its original Fairmont Alloys and wheel nuts to go with car)

Car sits on brand new Performance Challengers 15 x 8" front and 15 x 10" rear.

Motor is non matching but is out of a fact 351 4 speed manual GXL 78 Fairmont and have the verification letter for that car as well as used to own that car to. 

Coupe has its original rebuilt silky smooth 4 speed manual single rail gearbox with the correct square cut 1st gear.

Coupe runs its correct rebuilt 9" disc diff with stabiliser bar and working handbrake (most don't work).

Runs correct perfect exhaust system with its original cast headers and heat riser tube.

Interior is perfect concourse and brand new.
