Ford Fairlane thread, anyone?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Blades, Jan 14, 2010.

  1. Hey Guys, this Fairlane thread is great, but as I said in my earlier post, I am going to put my 61 up for sale here on the HAMB later today.
    In 67, I had a new 390 GTA. It was Silver Frost with a Red interior and I've never seen another one. My Dad also had a Fairlane.....Great Cars!

    Murph:cool:

HHHMM interesting. :confused: . well i had to hear to humor myself. the barrel of carb looked like it was filled with saw dust so its confirmed its beeen sittin. two squirts of starter fluid and revolutionand half and the thing fired right up! and oh yeh there was an imbalaced rod alright! maybe a broken one.:eek:its a straight 6/ 3 on tree. s i thanked her for let me look at it and left.:D im lookin for a driver cuz i got my model A project and i just wana cruiser! heres the pic is of the 63 fairlane

    raceron,

    what a great looking car. i hope to have mine that pretty one day. you have any idea where i can find a y block for mine? thanks
     


  14. Thanks, I'm just getting it back on the road after many years. John (streetdreams) did major portion of the restoration on it. I have some pics in my album of how it used to look - it was ugly!

    re: Yblocks? Yeah, I have 3 sitting in my polebarn (not for sale). Maybe post a want-ad in the classifieds here? They're out there, everything from a POS '54 239 cid to the pretty cool 312. I've seen prices all over the map on 'em too but you should be able to find a rebuildable core for reasonable $$. My engine is a bored .030" 292 out of a '55 Mercury completely rebuilt & with several upgrades.

    Yours looks like a '55? - with some '56 stuff on it? It looks pretty solid, something we don't find too often up here in a stock '50s car - most have rotted floors, etc. Good luck with the build!

    I have just acquired a combination of 6 '59 fairlanes, fairlane galaxy, mercury meteors and one that i think is 60. Here are pics of some of them how they sat in the bush. I have a ton of work ahead. It was hard to get a god pic because of all the trees.

    A couple guys came by the shop the other day wanting me to use my wrecker to pull this 57 out of a barn. It had been there since 1983.

    WOW! :eek: That beauty is in awesome shape. Motor? Trans? Looks like it wont take much to get it on the road. Looks solid and all. I gotta say that is one hell of a find.

    It is a 312 automatic car. There was also an original continental kit in the dirt next to the car (they had to remove it so the car would fit inside). The car was running, driving, in perfect shape when it went into the barn. The pictures are a little deceiving. It is far from solid, as barn leaks, rats, dirt floor, etc. probably rotted it out underneath. I wish the guy luck though.

    Reminds me of my aunt and uncle, only the '57 ragtop was my aunt's. He had a Powerpack/Powerglide '56 Chevy hardtop, and she had a 312-powered '57 with glass packs when they got married in 1960. They sold his and kept hers, because hers sounded better.

    We took the 65 out this weekend to a local car show, Spring Fling 2010 in Leonardtown, MD. Ended up getting the people's choice award. Not bad for a race car!

    Question: What Loctite do you recommend? I had a 3 speed column shift in my 63, I installed a toploader 4 gear trans. The problem I have is, the bolts are vibrating loose...the ones that join the bellhousing and the transmission.
