Lowering a 1962 Ford Fairlane for $30.
This weekend's project was lowering Cuti's 1963 Ford Fairlane 500. Used a
3'' block kit in the rear, and cut the front coils. Car has a 302 and a T-5
Firing up the 64 Fairlane.
It hasn't been started since March of this year. But the big block started
right up like its no big deal. Had this car for a long time , bought it
when I was 18, Drove in stock form back and forth to work in the eighties,
then started working on it and street raced it in the late eighties to
early nineties. In 93 I back halfed it, then started bracket racing at the
strip.In 2000, I built the front clip, and switched to big block. Me and
this car have seen a lot of fun together.
1969 Ford Fairlane Restoration: Lots of Body Work!
This video shows how we restored Agent 8771's old, beat-to-death 1969
Ford Fairlane coupe. The car had been hit hard in the rear many years ago,
and the frame rails were buckled. This, combined with the major structural
rust throughout, made the car virtually unrestoreable. Agent 8771 didn't
want to give up on the car however, and didn't want to just buy another
similar unit and pretend it was his old car. I decided that we could
replace the whole bottom half of the car with a solid, straight chassis
from a low-mileage 4 door sedan. When one came along at a low price, we
decided to get to work. We saved what we could from his original car,
including the seats, doors, roof, parcel shelf, hood, decklid, and glass.
We also used his old wheels, grille, bumpers, and even his old Exhaust system with the "Thrush" mufflers that
we used to put on our cars! When we were all done, it looked, sounded, and
drove like his old high school car! He even took off the power steering and
substituted his old manual box so that the car would drive just like it
used to. Overall, a really fun project and it makes a great story to tell
people you still have your first car, even if much of it has been "donated"
by another Fairlane sedan!
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy a tour of this project; let me know what you
think! Thanks for watching!
