Resources if you are restoring a Fairmont

(Some are in Adelaide)

Fairmont parts

Brown Railroad Equipment - A highly recommended source.

Have personally known the owner - Dan Brown - for nearly 20 years - sadly he passed away in April 2012, however his son has picked up the business.

Les King Motor Cars - Now trading as Fredericksburg Shops, but by all accounts the service and range is just as good.

I do not recommend back yard dealers - remember "there is no such thing as a free lunch".
