1979 Ford Fairmont Futura
Description: Mostly original paint (except hood) Fairmont body with 5.0
Mustang drivetrain. This has been a very fun car that my son and I have been playing with for several years. It has been drag racing, autocrossing, even drifting. The car has been remarkably reliable, and depending on the tune still gets 20 mpg. I will attempt to highlight some of the parts and modifications we have done.
Body: mostly original, including paint and 34 year old pinstripe, we
replaced the vinyl top and built an all steel cowl hood from the original.
Interior: The front seats are Scat Procar and the rear is the original, all
upholstered to match. The console is from an 86 Mustang, and the carpet is
new as well. There is also an Autometer Tach sectioned into the lower portion of the gas gauge (looks correct) and has a Club Sport steering wheel.
Engine: 1988 5.0, New rings, bearings and gaskets approx 20,000 miles ago.
Lunati Cam (comparable to E303) Pro Products upper and lower intakes. Pro M chrome 75 mm bullet mass air, 30 lb injectors, 70 mm throttle body and egr
spacer. BBK chrome headers, BBK 2.5" H pipe, Edelbrock mufflers,and 2.5"
mandrel bent tailpipes. Adjustable wet Barry Grant nitrous kit.
Trans: 1993 World class T-5, B&M Ripper shifter, Ford Motorsport SFI billet steel flywheel, and Centerforce clutch,
New Steel Driveline.

1988 Mustang front K frame and suspension with SVO 5 bolt front disc brakes.
Adjustable proportioning valve
Hurst roll control (line lock)
Walbro 255 External Pump
This is a car that could be driven on the street or strip.
I've probably missed a lot, but you get the idea by now. I don't want to
oversell it, the truth is, this is a 35 year old car with its original paint. It has rock chips, door dings and other signs of wear that you would expect of a car this old. A lot of folks aspire to the " patina " mindset, I however look at it as, there isn't anything hidden under a repaint, no rust, or obvious collision damage etc.
Trade considered for modern 4WD diesel tractor with HST trans, 30 ish HP range, Deere, Kubota, Yanmar ..?
