Anyone even remotely interested who has space to keep it should serously look into this.Fuel Efficient,simple to work on,brakes are same as EA81,the list goes on.And the engine can always be passed on to any other vintage owner.


Thanks for posting,Shawn.

Seats were suprisingly good aside from a usual tear on drivers side.Seats are blue.Dash is sun cracked.Carpet and rear seat looked good as well as inner door panels.I couldn't find the engine code on the block so I couldn't tell what type it was.Motor was really complete with Ac compressor and all.

The engine would be nice for any 76-79 owner!!
There might be a slight change from '78 to '79 since there's a different part number for the '79.

FE's are a fine example of what the industry SHOULD have been doing for the last 25 years.

The engine is an EA71,for sure.

Is the carpet blue too?
