67 Fairlane 500 project

Great forum.
I thought that I would post my current project even though it's not much to look at right now. Man, it takes alot of time and money to build these cars but I enjoy every minute! Feels like I am working on a shoe string budget but I will get it finished someday.

We all have to start somewhere. Yeah, it looks like you are into a full restoration. What are your plans for the car?

For now my plans are just to build a street car for local cruise ins/ car shows. I have a 302 HO engine out of a 84 mustang that I will build and drop in when the time comes. My short term goal this year is to finish the sheet metal work and weld in sub frame connectors. I do all the work myself to cut down on costs but it takes me a while.

I originally wanted to build a Pro Touring style car with modern suspension, drivetrain, etc..., but I just don't have the money to pull it off right now so I have cut down on my wish list and now I will settle just to have a solid street car that I can enjoy on the weekends.

The car originally was a 289/auto, but along the way someone had pulled it and put in a 6 cylinder. The body was in very good condition except for the passenger door. I just finished it this past week and hung it on the car. The next step is to repair some of the rusted areas in the floor pans.
