EL Falcon - Fairmont Ghia specs:

INDEX:

Summary:

Talk about a Falcon with the lot!  Now the only way to top this one was with either a Fairlane, LTD or GT...the EL model change was perhaps kindest to the Fairmont Ghia with most of the visible changes being very acceptable indeed! With the XR6 motor as standard equipment in all 6 cylinder versions and 162kw on tap due to a quieter exhaust (this was a luxury car remember) having a V8 was only a matter of pride, with very little extra bang for your buck and a fuel economy drawback to boot.  The EL came with the best looking Ghia alloys for a long time - and that includes later models as well - making it an exceptionally good looking model straight from the factory.

As the model from which the GT was based, the Fairmont Ghia missed out on very little as far as Falcons went.  Receiving the Fairmont's speed sensitive variable assist power steering, the EL Fairmont Ghia also gained an updated interior featuring extra wood grain and those sumptuous chrome sculptured door handles.  Seldom has any one feature made such an improvement!  While the EF Fairmont Ghia was a car to lust after, the EL version manages to improve on the formula and must take second row in later years only to Tickford's XR versions.  A hell of a lot easier to insure too!  About the only down side to the EL Fairmont Ghia was that it was no longer available in wagon form - doh!
