Building a 1966 F/X Fairlane

We are building a 1966 Fairlane to race F/X in Nostalgia Super Stock.

This is what we started with





After we cut out what was rusted out or not needed and mounted on a cart





Rust repaired on front apron

What's up with the '67 sedan that you were working on? Is this one taking its place?

Thanks for the pics, Rusty.
I am also building a '66, and was wondering
what brand of cage you prefer, and do you
have any pics where the bars meet the front
floor or Torque boxes??
Thanks !!

I'm sorry it has been awhile since I have been here. It is a Chris Alston's Chassisworks cage and frame.

Hey Rusty

Hey Rusty,
What ever happened to this '66? Did it get finished?
