1956 Ford Fairlane Part 3 - The Finished Product
This is the final video in a 3 part series. Please watch the other 2
videos to see the building/progress of the car. My son and I built this
Fairlane from the ground up with many modifications along the way. Enjoy.
Dad took me for a spin in his 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria. After stopping
at Buffalo Bill's Mansion and Scout's Rest Ranch, I ask him for a quick
demonstration of the Ford's engine power.
Update: A few viewers have kindly suggested (or rudely insisted) that the
engine is misfiring. Since I don't know much about cars, this one in
particular, I asked Dad the last time I talked to him. He told me that it
was not misfiring, and that the rough idle was characteristic of the
Y-block engines Ford was using for these cars. He did inform me, however,
that there is an Exhaust leak, and
that may be what people are hearing and mistaking for a misfire.
He then said, "I know that explanation won't be good enough for some people
who are convinced my engine just HAS to be missing. I don't care; it runs
well enough for my tastes."
Update 2: I'm going to ask all the functionally retarded members of the
YouTube community to please consider the following:
If you are a jerk to me, expect me to make fun of you, then block you. I'm
not putting up with it. You can hate me, hate my dad, hate his car, hate
this video all you want--just thumbs down my video and move on with your
life. Seriously. No one cares. At all. I put this up on a whim for
people who might enjoy seeing a '56 Fairlane. If you aren't one of those
people, go find something you do like.
