More Details & Pictures
For sale here is my 1978 Ford Fairmont Futura which is in pretty decent condition if I may say so myself. I’ve just put about $1,000 dollars into it fixing up any loose ends getting it ready for sale. It’s a good working car. Drives well and smooth – it is a joy to drive.
The odometer shows 62k miles and I am fairly certain this is accurate (i.e. it hasn’t rolled over to 162k miles) based on the wear pattern of the gas pedal, steering wheel, etc as well as the condition of the interior. The interior is very good, with everything still apparently original. The original hubcaps are still intact. The trunk has tons of space for hauling tools, musical instruments, bodies, whatever you need! The bench seats are super cozy, and even the original radio still works and even still has all of its knobs.
I have made sure that it’s ready to roll as soon as you take ownership. Here is an incomplete list of the recent work that I have done to restore this vehicle to great working condition:
Headlight switch, brake line, drum adjust, wheel cylinder, brake shoes & drums, ignition wires, brake line adapter, new carburetor (with the new carb, you do not need to use the choke any more – it’s chokeless now.) oil filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, distributor cap & rotor, air filter, wiper blades, transmission pan gasket & fluid, vacuum modulator. All this work was completed within the past few months and this car is now ready for sale.
It’s a super cool ride that is fun to drive. Perfect for you if you just need something that runs and doesn’t have a lot of cash. Feel free to reply via email or call/text if you have questions or would like to come for a test drive.
