Resources if you are restoring a Fairmont

(Some are in Adelaide)


Fairmont parts

Brown Railroad Equipment -

Was a highly reccomended source.knew the owner - Dan Brown - for nearly 20 years - sadly he passed away in April 2012, his son continued the business until it closed in 2017

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" and most likely to come with a loony rave
