The famous Fairmonster is for sale. While you might think this is just any old 1978 Ford Fairmont, this is a very special build. Car was originally built by Holley’s Tim Grillot, and then I bought it from Cleetus McFarland. Tim had it run 9’s at almost 150 mph leaving at idle. For the record, since I bought the car, Cleetus it has not been raced or driven much, just routinely fired up to keep everything moving.

I’m selling because I have too many projects and while this is crazy bad ass, it’s time to thin the heard. The engine and blower alone on this thing is worth $40k
This is the coolest thing you’ll ever own. Someone needs to buy it, do burnouts, cruise car shows, and get it to run 8s.
