ZH Marquis models were also available with the 'Regency' option. This was basically a range of four different metallic paint finishes (bronze, green, dark blue and lime) that were exclusive to the Marquis.
Late in the ZH model life, Ford released a limited edition 'Sportsman' model, which offered chrome-plated mirrors, 'Volante' alloy sports wheels, a special upright bonnet emblem, bodyside tape stripes and colour-matched vinyl roof. Around 750 are believed to have been built.
One of the few criticisms directed against the ZH Fairlane when new was its lack of boot space. While front and rear seat passengers had plenty of room, the boot area was quite shallow and the intrusion of the fuel filler neck further reduced luggage capacity.
