He raced side by side with many cars, Chet McFallo's Cobra did battle with Gary in C/A.
They made good looking Stock Cars too! Les Swayze and Jack McCoy, Portland, Or.
Does the current Gunfighter still use FE power?
Saw Chet McFallo run a few times at Mission City. Put on a great show.
This car sold a couple years ago for $803,000.00.
The current owner contacted me a while back, and I connected him with a buddy of mine that traveled with Chet in those days. The result was, he was furnished with many pictures, newspaper articles, and an original Cobra Racing Team shirt. The car was shipped over here from Germany (it's current home) and brought to my buddy's house. They took it to Woodburn for a photo shoot, and made some passes down the track. All made possible by the HAMB !!!!
Mine and 3 Fairlanes at the Lone Star Goodguys last fall. The brown one is available for 155k. It's a work of art!
Mine and two of my friend's from Knox City, Texas. Glen Large has been a life long collector of 57 Fords, has a museum called '57 Heaven in Knox City. lol, it's only open when he feels like being there. The black and white one he eloped with his wife in back
in the early 60's. He unfortunately had to put her in a nursing home a few years back because she required more care than he could provide. He drove her there in that car, and still takes her for a ride on Sundays in it. The pics were taken at the "summers Last Blast" in Vernon Texas this past August.
Your car is really one of the best I have seen. Great job...Its so clean and understated but so cool.
Is there a nicer looking '57 Ford around? I think you'd be hard pressed to find one.
From the photo, the color is just right. I'm digging what looks like a reversed early
'80s Mustang hood scoop.
Wow, I'm gonna get a fat head, there's lots of great '57's on this thread. Thanks a ton, I think I'll have those last two posts blown up poster size, lol.
Sky Six: we obviously have similar tastes.........yours is one of my favorite Fairlanes. I love everything about yours.
We use to do Phoenix twice a year, but our relatives there passed away two years ago, and haven't been back since the car was finished. I'm missing all the car related goings on there, hope to do a road trip with the '57 back there next year. Maybe someday we can get a pic of our cars side by side at the Pavilion Cruise!!
Quick 85: Yep, '83 Mustang GT hood scoop. I wanted something subtle, and I felt that worked great. As to the "reversed".......I bought the scoop in OKC, already pulled from the donor car. After I got it, I googled '83 GT's to see which way it mounted on the Mustangs. Found pics of 12 GT's, exactly 1/2 had the scoops cowl induction facing, like I did mine, so I'm not sure which was factory specs.
No, I don't like that scoop either.
Love the car - even though it has the scoop!
Baddest of bad.... this fuckers so mean, you could pour boiling water down it’s throat, and it would piss ice cubes.
some photos by @Malcolm
But, is it MEAN??????
Funny, just yesterday I saw this thread pop up and thought about adding these photos. this car is from the Omaha area - can't wait to see/hear it run!
Slap the throttle at 60 mph and find out!
58 fords really now days push my buttons!
