They are getting harder to find...........I don't know why they are not more popular as all the Fox Mustang stuff fits.................I had my mom's Zepher until a couple of years ago.

Being a donner car for the early Mustang disc brakes conversion, they are getting more difficult to find at a good rate. There are other years that work as well, but I don't have those on the top of the old noggin.

getting harder to find.....but fun if you can score a futura.

longer wheelbase, basically a 4 door mustang. The fox body tbird/cougar stuff will interchange as well.

always wanted to take a wrecked 03-04 cobra and put the driveline in my 80 4 door

There was one for sale here about a month ago for $600 and it was in pretty descent shape. It was the first one I have seen for sale in about five years. I remember back in the 80's you couldn't hardly give them away.

Fairmont suspension stuff dosn't interchange w/ Falcon platform stuff. Fairmonts
are Fox body, and have nothing in common. I did however rob the cyl head from a 200 6 in a '79 Merc Zephyr ( Ford Fairmont )
