Guess I need to start another project thread

So.....

Some of you know, I tracked my 93 stang's build here a few years ago. Well, she's off to a new home and getting even better. I'm on a new project now. This will be the chronicle build of my 1963 Fairlane 500 four door.

I bought the car a year ago with a 260 V8 and an FMX 2 speed. Original equipment all from a dairy farmer who had it stored in a barn. Sounds like a text book story but it's true. Got the car for $1200 and we trailered it the 108 miles to get it home.

Once I drove it off the trailer and around the block once, it was ready for disassembly. Of course, if you know me, that's what I did. I took the drivetrain out and put together a 351W and an AOD for it and had them on the shelf. I bought a Rod and Custom Mustang II front end for it and welded it in. I also got a few extra new parts for it. Here are a few pics with descriptions....



As I bought her after she was pulled out of the shed.......








After I started to tear into her...





Some of my welding of the new front end.......









As she sits now.......









The new plates for her. Lifetime registration I never need to register or get stickers for her again.





I have an 8.8 with 31 spline, traction lock and 3.73's with disc brakes from an Exploder that I have to narrow and install. I also just purchased a 1994 Lincoln Mark VIII to transplant the DOHC 4.6 and 4R70W into the Fairlane. The 351 and AOD will be sold and I'll build new mounts for the 4.6 now. Can't wait.

More to come as soon as I clear all the moving boxes and crap from on top of the car. We're still unpacking!!!!

Dave

Here is the donor. She's tucked in the yard until I can Frankenstein her heart lungs and brain into the Fairlane.




Soon enough, I'll be working my magic.

That's factory when the air bags are deflated. Rides like crap!!! There is an issue with the pump or whatever. I don't care about the air ride. I want the guts.

Re: Guess I need to start another project thread

It's sold now. A guy is on his way to pick it up. I'm not going to keep the boat. The last owner didn't take care of the interior and the body isn't as good as my pictures make it look. I do wish I could pull the IRS out and use it in something but oh well.

Re: Guess I need to start another project thread

I haven't done anything to the lane yet. I did start pulling the trunk and rear seat apart in the Mk8 though. I'm going to keep the air ride system as a whole and might try to work it into my Galaxy with the IRS too. The only concern is getting the car out of here with no rear suspension under it. I have an 8" rear in the lane that could go with it but no springs. I might have to work something out here. I really need to get the RZR's fixed and stored so I can have room for the Mk8 in the garage. TOO MANY PROJECTS!!!

Re: Guess I need to start another project thread

Do you like that mustang II kit? I thought about something like that for the Maruader since nobody really makes suspension parts for those cars.
