Add detail to your N Scale 1970s and later streets with the Atlas 1978 Ford Fairmont Sedan. The Ford Fairmont was an rear wheel drive compact car introduced in 1978 and sold through 1983 in North America. As the first vehicle built off the Ford Fox platform, the 1978 Ford Fairmont replaced the Ford Maverick. This platform would serve as the foundation for several other models such as the Thunderbird, the 1981-1982 American Ford Granada and the 1979-2004 Mustang. Three body styles were introduced with the release of the Fairmont - coupe, sedan, and wagon. The 1978 Fairmont set the record for production of a new model, defeating the record that was previously held by the 1965 Mustang, making it quite the rousing success for Ford. The Fairmont was an efficient combination of passenger room and cargo space for its size, garnering praise in the automotive media and drawing comparisons with competing Volvo and BMW models. At its introduction, the Fairmont was equipped with two headlights, though this was later remedied in 1981 where the number was upped to four. A variety of engines were available, including a 2.3 L four-cylinder, 3.3 L (200 cu in) six, and 255 cu in and 302 cu in V8s. This licensed model features an injection-molded plastic body with appropriate window glazing, simulated rubber tires, interior detail, undercarriage detail and realistic decoration.
