    Very cool build. Always like to see someone putting a 65 to good use.

    Wayne;go to You Tube,type in CHRR 2011,there are two videos of my Comet,one is from a Qualifying pass against Dale Snoke,the other is of my three runs!! We run an A/FX class out here,as the promoters only use one class designation.On the East Coast and Central US circuits they run Nostalgia Super Stock and A/FX is a class designation amongst their rules.I do not think you would be legal to run as I believe Fords have to run a FE based engine,no small blocks or 385 series combos. ROY.

    I checked the vids ... WOW ... I'll see if I can get my '64 fairlane "worked" for this but not sure I'm right in the mix of completing an 25.4 tube chassis '64 fairlane.

    Video looks like fun!!
