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

78 XC Ford Fairmont Coupe

Ford verifed as 1 of only 2 in this combo and the other is gone to car heaven as far as I have sourced.

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

Only selling as due to a leg condition and at 62yo I cannot get easily into the coupe anymore so have decided to sell one of my cars. Not selling my sedan as I get into that easy unless i part trade this coupe on a genuine XY GT with factory sunroof (see note at bottom of this ad regarding a trade) then this will be next. 

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 show to a person viewing car and will gladly give a full copy of the build to the purchaser. 

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 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)

Coupe is on club rego but that is not transferable.

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 as well. 

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.

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

Interior is perfect concourse and brand new.


Car has its original rear seat heat shields for exhaust on body and the correct 1 only passenger side tramp rod specific to T plated engine manual cars.

Correct pollution fuel tank and charcoal canister.

Runs its original distributor and has the correct large electronic box controlling the distributor on the passenger side in the engine bay.

Runs its original canister type power steering which works perfectly.

All guages work.

See the verification letter picture for its options and every one of those options is still retained on the coupe, even down to its working original aerial switch and balance switch for the working cassette player. All power windows work.

Correct speakers front and back.

Rare heated rear window.

Car presents as immaculate and will only suit a person who is a perfectionist and wants the best. Just turn the key and enjoy driving it.

This is a show winning car if your into showing cars.

Has all correct factory stickers and paint markings including on springs, diff, shockers, tailshaft, etc

Any queries please call Mark on 0409 233 815 - 8.30 am to 9pm any day (please call as I will NOT answer texts or messages asking to send details to an email address and private numbers will not be talked to about car - i want to see your number come up on my phone) - and please only call if serious as i am busy with work and not interested in life stories.

Don't waste my time please if not cashed up, have to apply for a loan or offering some stupid offer as you wont be buying it.

Deposit is 10% and balance by bank transfer only and car will not be released until funds cleared. Car is sold clear titled - so no money owing on it.

Viewing of the car or having someone verify it will be in country Bright, Vic (airport at Albury, NSW) at a spot I choose and will not be driven if the day is wet. Car has never seen water since its rebuild.

The only car I would trade coupe for and I would add in the balance (I have the money to do trade - dont have to ask the wife or bank) is a restored genuine 4 speed manual XY GT with a genuine option 10 sunroof in a nice combo.
