AMERICA TAKES FAIRMONT TO ITS HEART!
 
Last year, Ford introduced Fairmont, "The Ford in Your Future" —designed to be fuel efficient, space efficient, cost efficient. Fairmont in 2-door and four door sedans, 4-door wagons, and Futura, the Fairmont sporty coupe, is built for today but designed for the years to come. And America has responded to Fairmont as to no other new car in history. According to official figures, in 1978 more Fairmonts were sold than any other new car nameplate ever. Thus Fairmont breaks the record set by another great trend-setting car built by Ford more than a dozen years ago, the original Mustang.
The 1978 Fairmont was a record-smashing success in part because Fairmont delivered so well on its design objectives. Fuel efficient: Fairmont 2.3 litre 4-cylinder engine with standard 4-speed manual floor shift delivered 1978 EPA mileage estimates unsurpassed in its class. Space efficient: Fairmont's roomy interior has head, leg and shoulder room for five people. Cost efficient: compare Fairmont's sticker price with any other car in its class.
These are just a few of the reasons why America has has taken Fairmont to its heart.
See and test-drive the 1979 Fairmont for yourself at your Ford Dealer's. It could be "The Ford in Your Future," just as it has already become the new Ford of so many thousands of Americans.

Town Landau. High-flying luxury.

Ford's era of the personal automobile began in 1954, with the debut of an exciting, new kind of car — Thunderbird. Its name created images of glamour, excitement and distinction. Its high-flying style gave wing to soaring pride of ownership. And to this day Thunderbird remains steadfastly true to the traditional values of spirit, design, luxury and comfort. One luxuriously irresistible example of this is the Thunderbird Town Landau for 1979.
One look at Town Landau and you know you are in the presence of one of the world's distinguished personal luxury cars. It appears here in Midnight Blue Metallic.
The distinctive tiara-band roof, with its brushed aluminum wrapover applique' makes Town Landau easy to identify. Stylized script on the opera windows and translucent, color-coordinated hood ornament are other subtle symbols.
Other noticeable features from Town Landau's complete list of standards are: unique accent stripes on the upper bodyside, hood, grille openinh panel, headlamp doors, fender louvers and deck lid. And accent painted cast aluminum wheels.
