1980 Ford Fairmont 2dr Futura sport coupe 200Ci Inline 6 from North America
Classic 80's car
The only problem with the car is, since they stopped production of the car in 1983, they also discontinued the parts in 1985. So as you can imagine... the parts are hard to come by.
The interior has shrunk over the years. The roof is coming undone, and the carpet is ripped up. the plastic pannels on the interior are cracked in some places.
I never really had any problems considering how for the last 6 years it didn't run. however I also bought an '82 Fairmont Futura with the same engine and trans, and since I swapped all the parts over, she runs like a dream. The car has a lot of guts for a six cylinder.
She really isn't that hard to work on. Especially after you realize that since it is a "FOX" chassis, the car,in all reality, is an 80's Mustang, with a longer hood, and a trunk.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
