Not quite a Fairlane, just a custom.

And abeauty at that!
One of my old drivers from the early 90s. Let her go to a new home a few years ago.
A few shots of mine over the years.
Don't know anything about it but it's cool.
what's the latest on this 1/4 panel replacement?
Not much in the way of progress, I'm knee deep in a home renovation so I haven't had time to get back on it. I've put a battery in it and replaced the starter solenoid, but that's about all.
Here's a pic of the bad side, showing the quarter work thus far. Still needs a final trimming then it can be welded up.
So far it looks good. I like how you were able to work with sheet metal from a sedan.
Zombie thread revival!
Here's my '63 F'lane. 289, 3 speed top loader w/Hurst shifter, Holley 4bbl, Holley intake, Doug's Tri-Y headers. Currently saving my pennies for new "period correct" cheater slicks and front runners. On the back are the steelies from my grandfather's Galaxie.
57 Fairlane Skyliner I picked up a few weeks ago. Very interesting car.
Who has a photo of a wiper motor on their 62-65 Fairlane? I'd like to know where the ground wire is mounted.
Here is a pic of my 65 lane wiper motor.
The black wire in this photo I'm guessing is mounted to the firewall, I forgot where it goes. :-/
Saw the pictures from MCCAN, Well done Alan...Geoff

Here's mine. Has replica dual quads offered to law enforcement and racers as an option at the Ford dealership parts counter.
Beauty just needs paint
HERES MY 61 - 47,000mile surviver .. 223 L6 .. 3 on the tree .
I like it and I'm jealous.
Here is a couple pics of my 62. I swapped the 221 and Ford-o-matic for a 1968 289, c4. Lots of work done to the 289, around 325, 350hp.

My 64 is getting a new heart this week minus the tri-power. Going back to the 750 Holley for a while.
I noticed a dual reservoir master cylinder, is that for safety or disc brakes?
Good catch John!
That's for Safety. It's a Maverick Master Cylinder, that cost under $50. brand new. Hooked right up, and I installed the Brake Pressure Switch to a junction block.
No issues with stock Manual Brakes either.
Here's a close-up...
I added a new line from the front reservoir to a junction block, to the stock brake line and pressure switch.
my 56,pretty much original and as is from when imported out of Idaho...still left hook
Total pro job right there bro!
Do not have a small one but I do have a first year version.
Totally dead thread...but I thought I would add my mine to it anyway; 1962 Fairlane 500 Sport Coupe with a 260/4v and a 4-speed....original white with red interior car. This is my current daily, and its surprisingly comfortable to drive.
