`63 4dr. sedan

my wife & I just bought a `63 Fairlane 500 4dr last month for $300.00. we had to replace the engine/trans, used a 302/C4 combo from a `79 Granda.it has the usual rust (Iowa Car) lower quarters, dog legs, lower front fender, rear spring hangers and two small holes in drivers floor. besides that engine swap, we have done all new fuel&brake lines,new brakes and dual exhaust. sprayed it in primer for now,we'll do body work this winter. i'll try to post pix later. Very Happy
more later!

While at it: grab the disc brakes and wheels from the Granada as well. They will fit your present ball joints, not sure which conversion outer tie rod end is needed, though.
