It has been my passion for 5+ years. I went completely through the car to make it my own and to make sure it is 100% and well tuned and sorted. It is turn key and ready to enjoy. ***No expense spared*** Drag raced it 1 x on 1/4 mile and 2 x on 1/8 mile - just for fun but it is super fast. Mostly take it to local cruise nights and car shows, I drive it to work on nice days, and I took it to Carlisle several times. It won 1st place at the Carlisle Mopar weekend fun field! Well sorted and in excellent condition, turn key and enjoy! Street legal, registered and inspected. Pump gas. Needs nothing. I just had engine freshened with all new bearings, rings (stock bore) had the heads done over, brand new 3500 stall converter and 4.11 gears (more street friendly than the 4.56's it had). I also had a custom 3" Exhaust system installed with cross over and tailpipes. New Mopar dual batteries. Literally less than 10 miles on all new parts - still breaking it in. When we tore down the engine we were shocked to find a top fuel billet crank. We upgraded to Indy roller rockers to match the roller cam. Super cool car it is the hit of any show. The interior is period correct racer with vintage seats, full dash and roll bar, but no carpet or door panels.

1969 Ford Fairlane Restoration: Lots of Body Work!
Hi! 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!
