The Home of the SA GT – My interest in the South African Fairmont GT (SAFTGT), besides wishing to own one, is an attempt to find my Dads red Fairmont GT. After a lot of “googling” I quickly realised there is a wealth of information in various places on the internet. This site is an attempt to gather all information in one area and relaunch the forum that Boxy Rule started some years ago.
Ford South Africa would have been the original source of truth, but unfortunately records were lost when Ford moved from Port Elizabeth to Pretoria in 1986. Over the years information has been collected, therefore there may be conflicting facts and figures on this site. SAFTGT would appreciate feedback on anything that is not correct to ensure what is published is factual.
Enthusiasts in United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia, Germany and New Zealand have dedicated time and large sums of money to ensure the South African Fairmont GT does not rust away. Over the years SA Fairmont GT have been exported from South Africa in various stages of disrepair or near perfect condition and many enthusiasts have restored the SA Fairmont GT to ensure the legend continues.
General fact sheet
I have used a number of images from the internet of various SAFTGT’s for display purposes only. EG colour etc. if anyone is offended please let me know. Otherwise thank you all for allowing me to use these images to support this great cause of saving the SAFTGT alias the Rhino. In South Africa we have the white, black and SAFTGT Rhino
I hope you enjoy this web site, appreciate comments on improvements and further updates to the Fairmont GT legend. Thank you to all those that have contributed to this site and special thanks to:
