We have been very busy in the shop and I have not had a lot of time to work on this project.

We installed a TCI shifter with a custom mount made by my son Brian and Lokar power cut off attached to the Flaming River unit in the trunk.

At this time I have decided to put together a 428 from a lot of the left over parts I have and race the Fairlane in Nostalgia Super Stock at NMCA events. I can always build an NHRA legal SS engine at a later date.

A friend of mine gave me the 9" rear and I think it came out of a Bronco. It is very hard to get the slicks to clear the 2" studs so to make it easier to install we are going to narrow the rear 1.25". That will center the 10.5" slick when I get a new set in the center of the wheel well.



The Wilwood brakes I have are for the late big Ford housing so we will install a set of Strange housing ends.





The battery cable runs along the frame rail. There is more clearance than the photo shows.

After measuring the rear that was in the Fairlane I found out the pinnon was not in the center. I had a rear out of a 1963 Galaxie that we started to narrow years ago but for some reason never finished. I measured it and once Brian welds the Strange late Ford housing ends it will be perfect for the Fairlane.

I ordered a back brace and heavy duty spring perches from Jeg's and Brian started fitting and welding today.







Next week Brian will finish welding.

Ready for epoxy



Two coats of SPI black epoxy. I'm going to wait about an hour and turn it over again and spray a third coat.
