1982 Ford Fairmont sedan

All posts about Fairmont projects.

About/History:
I found the Fairmont for sale in a classified ad in the paper. It was located in Haverhill, MA. It had a few rust holes and other minor issues, but was in pretty decent shape overall with only 60,000 or so original miles, so 1100 dollars later I drove it home. With minimal work, it served as my daily driver with the stock inline 6 for almost three years.
