1979 Ford Fairmont wagon (Wednsday)
Last updated Nov 11, 2013
This little wagon came to me as an orphan, kind of a take it or scrap it but it goes today deal. at that time it had sat for three years outside with no rear window. Needless to say the interior was a bit rough, a little starting fluid and a jump and she came home with me.
it has a 200 ci inline 6 pushing a whopping 85 hp (in 1979)
nearest i can tell the little wagon was a moderately nice model at one point judging by all i have seen around town and in scrap yards. it has a hood ornament (at least it did before my kids "fixed it" for me. lol). is has front bumper molding a passenger side rear view mirror, a luggage rack intermittent wipers and a rear defrost. oh and 14" wire hubcaps stock
I took the broken split bench out and installed '83 Mustang Ghia buckets (look better but still suck for comfort, gotta try again). rear side windows done in a moonlit copper metallic color. satin black body w/pinstripe flames amd a modified skull hitch cover in the grille. i got a deal i couldn't turn down on the 17" 100 spoke wires that it has on.it has a headliner console with map lights from a mid 90s suburban and i am in the process of changing over to black interior from brown
