1979 Ford Fairmont Futura coupe. VERY nice body and interior for the age. Clear SC title in my name. Car has been in dry storage for about the last 10 years (while I’ve owned it). NO RUST- very, very SOLID car!! Car was a 2.3 4 cylinder automatic. I have since removed the engine and transmission, so it is a “ROLLER”. That means no engine, car cannot be driven as-is. I still have the C3 transmission, not included, but I sold the engine. 78K mile car!! I have too many projects and I HATE to sell her!! You’d better act before I change my mind. Great color combo (factory 2 tone gray/black) and the car has the very desirable black interior!! This car does not have that silly vinyl top that so many did. This car was a 4 cyl, so the front K member is the same as a V8. All you need to do is swap the springs. I have a set of those I will sell to you if you need them. This car has the sport suspension “package” – even though it was a 4cyl, it has a V8 front sway bar and a sway bar on the rearend. This is the right setup to make a great Fairmont! The only thing custom I’ve done to the car is to add the Mustang pony rims as shown. I refinished them and added new sold center caps with Ford ovals. The tires are so-so. I installed a brand new $200 gas tank and NOS sending unit in the car prior to removing the engine!! I also installed new front struts. The pics of the car sitting under the shed were taken 5/10/15. This is one of the nicest Fairmont projects you will find. I have a nice trunk mat, original spare tire in pristine shape, and new insulation for the hood, all not pictured, that come with the car. Price is non-negotiable for now. If you purchase some of my extra parts I will dicker on those but not on the car price. I am not interested in trades.

I have a set of extremely low mileage, PERFECT condition Mustang LX black tweed seats with power lumbar supports and NOS fabric to cover the back seat that I bought to use in this car. The Futura currently has the vinyl bench seat in good shape for its age, some cracks, but no big tears and the padding is great. The Mustang seats and fabric are to be sold separately – I have a lot of money ($900) invested in them. They are NOT included with the car. I am mentioning them because they would look awesome in it!!

I also have many Fairmont parts. If you have cash for a project, I can just about be your one stop source for NOS parts, etc to go along with the Futura coupe. No engine parts, unless you’d consider a 6 cyl. I have a 82 Futura 4 door sedan, 22K actual miles (yes) that runs good but has no title. I think a title could be obtained without a lot of hassle (from talking with the DOT), but I just haven’t made the effort. I can send pics of that car if you’re interested.

SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY. If you want a great start to a fox body or Fairmont project and are actively looking for a solid car and/or parts, get in touch. This is not a pile of junk.
