thats awesome, most people expect me to tell them it only has like 20k on it...he must have driven it a decent amount, he was in the air force so it was parked at the air force base alot. sticker is still on the front bumper. it was bought new from tiedge ford in portsmouth ohio

i saw a medium chestnut metallic fairmont box top a few weeks ago, i went flying into a parking lot to look at it, as i approached i realized it was a flintstone mobile, the bottom of the doors were gone, the rockers were gone and the bottom of both fenders and quarters were gone, made me realize how lucky i was to score this one
