Super rare to find 1982 XD Fairmont Ghia ESP 351 4 Speed now offered for sale. Located in Perth, WA. Offers over $110,000 are invited.

We're not sure what Ford's marketing department was thinking calling the top of the line XD Fairmont Ghia a European Sports Pack. To most Aussies it's plain and simply a GT.

But names aside, the XD ESP was a lovely package. In many ways, a whole lot nicer than the GT Falcon it replaced. Under the bonnet was still a 351 Cleveland V8, although now weighed down with ADR specified pollution gear. You could still order a manual or auto transmission. There were even subtle pin stripes and 5.8 Litre badging to let everyone know you had ticked the box for the sporty version and the big 351 engine. The car ran sticky Uniroyal Wildcat tyres and 5 spoke Globe Bathurst alloy rims, uprated suspension, a rear axle tramp rod and faster ratio unassisted steering. And open the doors and WOW...those amazing body hugging horizontally-striped Scheel sports seats were the icing on the cake.

It's pretty clear to us in hindsight that Ford's intention was a reincarnation of the GT model it had dumped five years earlier.

For sale is a genuine Hermitage Red XD Fairmont Ghia ESP 351 Cleveland V8 and 4 speed Single Rail Top Loader in exceptional condition. A very late XD ESP built in Feb of '82 with the XE model series commencing a month later. The car was originally sold through Kloster Ford in Hamilton, Newcastle, NSW. The XD has had a closed door repaint approximately 8 years ago and is rust and damage free. The ESP features the original Scheel trim in exceptional condition and has covered a genuine 130,000 Kilometres. The ESP was supposedly an ex demo vehicle but documentation shows it was sold to the first owner in Merrylands, Sydney with only 77km on the clock. Obviously, the first demonstration of the car went well!

Now owned by a serious Ford collector in Perth, the ESP comes complete with the original purchase invoice, delivery documents, Log books, purchase paperwork, radio owners manual and verification letter from Ford. The Ford verification letter notes that this particular example is one of 2 built by Ford with this exact build specification. A photo of the car with the original owner in 1982 is also supplied.

Mechanically the ESP has been upgraded with forged pistons, HO pushrods, blue printed high volume oil pump, Pro Comp electronic ignition, Edelbrock manifold, 780 Holley Carby and Genie extractors. The car has been meticulously maintained and presents in near showroom condition throughout.

Riding on the genuine Globe alloy wheels with brand new Supercat 215/60/R15 tyres.

This is a standout example of a very rare and genuine Ford XD muscle car. An ESP by name. A GT in our books.

Located in Perth, WA for your inspection. Offers invited over $110,000. (Ref: 5841)
