100000000 US built ford

On this day in 1977, the 100,000,000 U.S. built Ford rolled off the assembly line in Mahwah, New Jersey. The special 1978 Ford Fairmont Futura spent its early life on a coast to coast marketing tour before being preserved.

The compact Ford Fairmont was all new for 1978, succeeding the Maverick. The model was sold as a coupe, sedan or station wagon and could be had with a variety of engines. Buyers could select from options such as the standard inline 4, a turbo inline 4, an inline 6, or a 302 V8. The last Fairmont left the line in 1983. (Image courtesy UAW Ford Department Facebook.)
