Ford- Fairmount/Zephyr 1978-1983 Repair Guide



The Fairmont/Zephyr series, introduced in 1978, features the fuel economy and maneuverability of a compact car with the interior roominess and comfort of a mid-sized car.

Some highlights of the Fairmont/Zephyr series are: A strut-type front suspension; coil spring, four-link rear suspension; manual or power rack and pinion steering; lightweight, cast center-section rear axle; lighter front disc brake calipers and a body designed with computer analysis to provide a balance of strength and light weight.
