Hero car for our annual Aussie family cars value guide

One of our former cover cars has come up for sale – a nicely-presented 1978 XC Ford Fairmont.

It was a well-optioned family luxo cruiser when it first rolled out of the showroom, with the 4.9lt V8 up front, three-speed auto, air-con and power steering.

This example has a good history and was resprayed in 1999. The odo is showing around 148,000km.

It was used to illustrate our cover feature for issue 450, last March, and we ran a profile on the car and owner as part of that. You can see the story here.

As we've often said, local premium chrome bumper cars iike this tend to be low-stress to own, drive and maintain, while still a very reliable prospect for a long trip.

This example is with Australian Muscle Car Sales in Sydney and is priced at $69,500.
