Just spoke to ford about what options my 97 Futura came with – and apparently there was an “Option 98â€￾ which the guy says wasn’t on the option list sheet. Anyone know what that was??

I also noticed mine came with the “Sport Suspension Packâ€￾. Anyone know what came with that?.

Ive got no idea what OPT98 is. To my knowledge, theres no hidden options on the car....

I was hoping its a blueprinted engine! :lol:

That would have been my guess, but I didn't think that the hybrid motor was an "option". Then again the RPO "option" on XA GT's wasn't exactly an "option" either :)

We need an answer on this. It's gunna give me the s**t. I've been searching on the net with no luck! Aaaaarghh!

I rang ford and gave them my vin - and he went away and told me how it rolled out of the factory...it had the usual like air con, 4 speed auto, trans cooler - also the "sports suspension pack" (sweeeet) but he said it also had "Option 98" which he said wasnt in his book....

OPT 98 is my lazy abbreviation - it doesnt say this anywhere on the car.

So what the F**k is Option 98? I cant find a code list on the net....

Dunno. Those who know me, know that I tend to dig a little deeper than most Ford Partsguys. I will search EVERYWHERE to get you an answer. (yes I will more than likely lose sleep) will post tomorrow all going to plan.

Partsguy - you are my own personal jesus. Appreciate it.

Its most probaby some pissweak option like special seat colors or something. I dunno....Although apparantly it was bought new by a Ford dealer in Geelong who owned it for a few years - so might be something interesting.

Rear wing perhaps?? It does have a factory wing.
