Check Out the 1978 Ford Fairmont on Ebay September 17, 2018, 06:54:13 PM Everybody check out the radical '78 Ford Fairmont on Ebay. Kind of a reddish-orange. In Birmingham, AL. Buy It Now price of $12,000. He claims it's badged as a Mercury Cyclone. Not sure about all that, but it is a good-looking car. It has a very built 250 I6 (turbo'd, injected, roller cammed). At 7psi, he claims 350hp. I believe what he says that you won't find another one like it. What do y'all think?
