Ford Fairmont Futura 408 windsor

drag racing in alaska. This was the first car I owned back when I was 14. I finally pulled it into the shop,completely went through it and is really just a weekend street cruiser. It makes quite a bit of power, and with some more tuning I plan on being in the low 11's on the motor. There is a 200 shot of Nitrous also that I haven't really had the balls to use...meaning I wouldn't want to damage the motor!

1978 Ford Fairmont Futura BluWht
This is an interesting design from Ford. Essentially a very rectangular car, it has a sweep of color over the roof, reminiscent of the sweep of chrome over the roof of the 1956 Crown Victoria. Nice colors, nice interior!

1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look -EricTheCarGuy
Many of you have been asking me about Fairmont videos so I thought I would make this one where I take a closer look at what I have to work with. I also talk about some of my plans for this car going forward. I think I have a really nice 'shell' to work with. I have my work cut out for me that's for sure, but as I say in the video, that will just make for more interesting videos. For now, I think I'll drive it. It's a good car after all. A few minor issues, but nothing to really worry about. I may do some of the repairs such as the inner tie rod in an upcoming video. I just need to work out the alignment when I'm done. Looks like an easy job though, easier than some of the other power steering rack stuff I've done. Anyway, enjoy the video. Here's some links.

Introduced for the 1978 model year, the Fairmont was produced in several bodystyles until it was replaced by the Ford Tempo for the 1984 model year. The Fairmont was the successor to the Maverick; its Mercury counterpart was the Mercury Zephyr, which replaced the Comet. The Fairmont and Zephyr marked the introduction of the long-running Ford Fox platform, used for a wide variety of later models. Those most closely related to the Fairmont included the 1980--1982 Ford Thunderbird, the 1981--1982 Ford Granada, the 1979--1993 Ford Mustang (and 1979--1986 Mercury Capri), and the 1982--1987 Lincoln Continental.

Replacing Inner Tie Rods Fox Body Ford -EricTheCarGuy
After shooting "1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look" I decided to replace the right inner tie rod on the Fairmont. It was pretty loose and was also wearing my tire on that side a little funny. I thought it would be a good idea to just go ahead and replace it. As you can see in the video it's not that difficult. I had a harder time with the cotter pin than the inner tie rod. Still, this video will apply to all fox bodies of this vintage and get you the information you need to know to get the job done. Here's some useful links.
