I bought this car in December of 2008 from a 103 year old lady in Hendersonville, Tenn. It had 26,952 miles on it when I drove out of the parking lot and headed home. It now has 29,643 miles on it. This is a truly rust free, low mileage Futura.

I have all the original documentation for the car including the original sales order, warranty card and build sheet from between the springs and cushion of the front seat.

My intention was to build a nice street car with a roof, air conditioning and an automatic trans.

I got as far as building the 8.8 rear end for it and got it installed but unfortunately that’s as far as I got. Now I’ve come to the realization that I’m not going to be able to get it finished. I just don’t have the time.

The car has:
200 c.i. 6 cylinder.
Power Windows
Power Door Locks
C4 Automatic
Air Conditioning
Power Steering
Power Brakes
AM Radio
I replaced the power bench seat with 2 ’90 Mustang GT bucket seats.They’re not perfect but they are in decent condition.
The headliner, rear package shelf and dash pad are all perfect.
The Rear Seats, Carpet and Door Panels are all perfect.

When I did the rear end I used 2.73 gears because I intended to stay with a 3 speed C4. I rebuilt the Traction Lok and put in all new bearings and seals. It has drum brakes with 4 lug axles from the ’90 GT.
I used 2000 Mustang GT lower control arms, Factory Five Tubular Upper Control Arms and ’90 Mustang GT Rear Springs and Sway Bar.

I have the following for it:

2000 5.0 with 59k on it from a Mercury Mountaineer.
Complete Fuel Injection System from the Mountaineer.
New Ford Racing E303 Cam
New Fuel Injection Wiring Harness from Factory Five
AC Compressor with bracket.
New Fox Body Oil Pan.
Melling High Volume Oil Pump with Pick Up Tube.
Mallory Electric Fuel Pump and Regulator.
’90 Mustang GT Front Springs and Sway Bar.
New Urathane Front Sway Bar Bushings.
NOS Hood Emblem.
Center Console from an ’86 Mustang.
Double Hump Trans Mount.
2 New High Beam Headlamps.

It does have a few issues.
The windshield is cracked.
The R/R Wheel Cylinder is not releasing all the way and the brake drags.
There is no muffler or tail pipe.
One Windshield Wiper is missing.
Choke doesn’t work. Hold it closed and the engine starts right up.

I’d like to sell the entire package. I know I’m not going to get back what I have in it but I don’t want to give it away either.

$4500 for the entire package. I’m open to reasonable offers or possibly parting it out.
