Cheap V8 Aussie workhorse for the whole family: minor wear on body and interior, reconditioned engine – drives beautifully

Ford’s EB Falcon of 1991 was visually hard to distinguish from the preceding EA, but there were various improvements under the skin; and were vastly improved in regards to reliability.

There were new springs and has shock absorbers, and minor adjustments to camber and castor settings lead to a superior handling car.

The big news was the return of the V8, with the Mustang-sourced 5.0lt V8 taking pride of place in the powerplant hierarchy.

This 1993 EB II Fairmont wagon is specified with the 5.0lt V8, coupled to the automatic gearbox.

It’s a fairly well-maintained Aussie workhorse, with good exterior and interior save for some minor wear and tear, namely a small scuff on the rear bumper and a steering wheel that’s a little worn.

The Fairmont wagon received an engine re-conditioning just 40,000kms ago and has travelled an admirable 364,000kms on the chassis.

The seller states the car drives beautifully and presents mechanically "A1".

It’s also been fitted with an exhaust and extractors, and has recently received new headlights, tail lamps and indicators.

Beyond the minor wear and tear – the seller points out that the Air-con works intermittently and the rear window demister is currently non-functional.

Still, it’s a cheap and cheerful workhorse with room for the whole tribe, and – if you are a passionate EA-EL fan – could be a cheap and relatively straight forward project to bring up to scratch.

The Fairmont wagon is based in New South Wales, and is listed for $3,900 (or nearest offer).
