Rare one of only 178 XE Fairmont Ghia ESP 5.8 Litre V8 and 4 speed manuals ever produced. In stunning Monza Red over Charcoal this beauty runs the matching numbers 351 Cleveland and 4 speed manual gearbox. Located in Collaroy, NSW.

While Ford dumped the high performance image of the GT after the XB Falcon, there was still a way to get your Three Five Ones worth of power. With the XC model, Ford gave us the Fairmont GXL. With the XD Ford's luxo hot rod was the Fairmont Ghia ESP with the final and best dressed iteration left for the XE Fairmont Ghia ESP. By the time the XE rolled down the assembly line, Ford's honchos had decided that the XE model would spell the end of their V8 offering. And so it was, that for the next 10 years or so there would be no V8 offered by Ford.

Madness we know. But it sure as hell guaranteed legendary status for the mighty XE Fairmont Ghia ESP from day one. Only 260 XE ESPs were manufactured with the 302 V8 engine and automatic transmission, a further 100 with the same small-block and a four-speed manual tranny. And only 178 ESPs were built with the mighty 351 Clevo of which all were four-speed manuals.

All XE ESPs were built between February and November, 1982. With the XE ESP Ford offered a stunning two tone painted finish. All were equipped with power steering and air-conditioning with power windows, central locking, power antenna and a premium sound system as optional extras. While the engine and drivetrains remained unmodified in ESP form, the car was enhanced with four-wheel-disc brakes, Bilstein shocks and lowered springs. Also signature 15" Snowflake alloys and 60-series Uniroyal Wildcat tyres completed the picture.

Inside, truly stunning Scheel buckets immediately grab your attention and the whole interior is finished in a soft-touch trim. And the ESP features six gauges - speed, tachometer, fuel, temp, oil and volts housed in the big, rectangular XE binnacle.

For sale is a beautiful example of this super rare model. Finished in Monza Red over Charcoal, this XE Fairmont Ghia ESP features the original matching number 351 Cleveland which has been enhanced with a mild cam and aluminium intake, 750 vac sec Holley, extractors through to a full dual 2.5" system, then to a single exit pipe. The original Carter 4 barrel Thermoquad comes with the car.

The Gunmetal Grey interior features the original ESP Scheel seats and all interior, dash and steering wheel are immaculate. Originally sold through Trevan Car Sales, Lismore, NSW, the ESP is running the factory working air conditioning and power steer and is showing a genuine 163,850 km on the clock.

Riding on 15" factory Snowflake wheels and excellent tyres. Original spare in the boot still carries the day one Uniroyal.

Rarely available and an excellent example of one of Ford's rarest muscle cars. Available for inspection in Collaroy, NSW. (Ref: 6036)

If you wish we will gladly arrange a video tour/inspection of the car using WhatsApp and of course there is no issue with door to door enclosed transport anywhere in Australia or New Zealand.
