Mooooo...you asked for it

Here's a pic of my 1966 Ford Fairlane 500 XL. I've owned it for over 7 years now, and I bought it off my brother for 500.00...that's right It originally was a 289 car, but the first thing I did was yank out that little guy, and bolt in a 460, which I had in my 1970 Torino Cobra. I put .060 over 460 in (472 cubic inch ), a C6 Full Manual Valve Body Trans, the 9", "N" case Detroit Locker rear w/3.89 Richmond gears, and the old Torino driveshaft, shortened an inch. I even used the springs and shocks from the Torino. I gutted every part from it that I could, because the body was very rusty, and needed more money than I wanted to put into it. After taking everything out, I sold the body to the ultimate optimist for 200.00

The engine is a Jasper short block, with stock dished pistons. The heads are 1968 429, with the 72cc chambers, which helps up the compression a tad. I have stock size Seal Power Stainless Valves, 2.08 intake, and 1.65 exhaust. The valvetrain is all Lunati. Bracket Master II cam, with 280-290 duration, and .516-.543 lift, roller rockers, adjustable valve train, guide plates, and hardened pushrods. I have a Ford Motorsport dual roller timing chain. The ignition is all MSD, with the distributor plugged into the MSD-6A box, and a Blaster II coil. The carb is a Holley 850 Double Pumper, with dual 50cc accelerator pumps, and re-jetted. I bought the jet kit, so I can change them myself. I have a fuel cell in the trunk, with the Holley Blue Pump, and 08 stainless braided line from the fuel cell to the carb. The headers are from Total Performance, in Mt. Clemens Michigan, and I ran 3" pipe into 3" Flowmaster's with turndowns. I need to put some Drag Radials on back, because the street tires are useless Best time with 28" Drag Radials last year, was 12.78 at 105.93 Last weekend, I did a 13.017 at 106.99, with alot of wheelspin. I'm hoping the Drag Radials will get me to 12.5 at something other than 107. Not too bad, for a mild 472 cubic inch, 4000 pound street car, with less than 5000 dollars in the car.

OK so here it is my mint 1968 mustang. With 16,000 miles on the odometer. when I bought it 5 years ago it had just over 10,000 on it, and yes it is the old story of how a little old lady owned it and only drove it on Sundays to church.
I have all the original service records and the original tires. When I got the car I had to replace heater hoses and brake lines. The car was on jacks in a barn on the second floor covered. 1968 was the last of the 289 small block. I plan to keep it as original as I can. It is in nice shape. Here are some pics that I took today








This one is the best

I got my old Falcon back last week and boy is she in desperate need of repair or retirement. I let my sister use her for a few years and this is how I get her back. I hate to see the ugly thing get uglier.

This is my grandpa's 1968 Mustang he bought in 1979, completely trashed out. He's done minor body work, as well has rebuild the engine and the interior. Great car, and sounds just as good as some of the V8's at the car shows we've gone to. I love the car, and I love getting to work on it even more.

Late '60's Mustangs are great! But I have to vote for the 1969 MACH I as the best looking Mustang ever built!

This one was my first car:

Here's my first car, a '62 Ford Ranchero. Started with a 289 and C4 auto. It even has a built-in cooler in the bed for lots of be...I mean soda. I still have it, and now I'm looking for a 5.0 HO and AOD tranny w/shift kit from a Mustang to put in it. Unfortunately, money isn't there right now.

This is a 1962 Falcon, I sold this care a few years back, but I drove this baby as my only car for 15 years - it NEVER even once broke down on me. I put more miles of this baby than the original owner.

These are some pics I snapped just prior to its sale. I added way too many things to this car to make it a reliable daily driver, but here are the biggies:

200 CID from a 1970's Granada complete w/ the Hi-energy ignition, and alternator, guage package in custom console, electric fule pump, nice kenwood system with 10" woofers and alot of speakers (all hidden so as not to damage any of the original interior parts.

The interior is all original except for the carpet, steering wheel, and custom console.

God I miss that car! But, it was sold to buy a super nice 1992 CV - I had to have A/C!

Might as well pitch a pic of mine in here too. This is my 68K mile '68 Ranchero, purchased from the original owner. He had a close encounter with an 18 wheeler, modifying the right rear quarter panel into an unrecognizable piece of scrap metal. Said he couldn't find the parts to repair it so he sold the motor. Now she has a new tail and a nice shiney 5.0 HO/AOD ready to drop in. A little more time and money and she'll be eady for the cruise ins.

Being new around here, thought I would show that Blue Blood runs through these veins over in sunny England
Had a few FoMoCo products over the years both English and American, the current fleet is:
69 Cougar XR7 convertible 390.
This was imported in 2003 by a dealer, we bought it not long after, an original Cali car needed a new interior and roof and a damn good polish !
Mostly original we have just come back from a trip to Belgium with it

69 Cougar Eliminator Boss302
I should say ex Boss 302 !
This appeared on Ebay UK last year in a Junkyard, though not described as an Eliminator or Boss I spotted the interior and did a "buy it now".When delivered we got the VIN and it was a genuine G code (Boss302 only) Though it is missing all it's running gear the unique Eliminator interior is good along with the spoiler and scoop. Even the Drag Pak 31spline 3.9 axle was still there.
The shell is well shot though, not just corrosion, someone had cut out the floors, trunk floor and wheel tubs, the whole shell was distorted. It is currently stripped bare and the shell in long term storage while I decide what to do

Last up:
69 Cougar XR7 351w
I bought this earlier in the year from a friend in Cali with the intention of making an Eliminator clone with the parts from the other shell, work is under way. The structure is immaculate and is an easy prep, though i will more than likely be selling it when done with buying the P71

So, thats my fleet

This is my dad's 1969 Galaxie 500 convertible. It has 32,000 original miles on it and has been a Wisconsin car all its life. The paint, chrome and interior is all original. The Convertible top and boot has been redone though. It has the 390 V-8 and has been converted to a 4 barrel carb. The car was purchased new in 1969 by my fathers Aunt.

This is my 64 Galaxie 500.

yeah, it looks horrible, but it's all surface rust, body is really straight and solid, it runs and drives (289, Cruise-o-matic trans) I bought it off the second owner who had it since 1969, so it's mostly all original.

It's going in for bodywork and paint next spring, in the meantime, I'm rebuilding a 71 460 big block and C-6 for it, and starting to buy the swap mounts and crossmembers, headers, dual quads, Thunderbolt traction bars, etc for it to convert it into a fun street/strip machine with a little nostalgic 60's drag look/feel to it.
I'll pull and store the orginal engine and trans in case I want to put it back to original.

No on-line pic available but my first car was a '69 Ford LTD 4-door sedan w/the Brougham package and the standard 302 engine.

Paid $300 for it back in 1982 and had it for 2 years.

It's going in for bodywork and paint next spring, in the meantime, I'm rebuilding a 71 460 big block and C-6 for it, and starting to buy the swap mounts and crossmembers, headers, dual quads, Thunderbolt traction bars, etc for it to convert it into a fun street/strip machine with a little nostalgic 60's drag look/feel to it.
I'll pull and store the orginal engine and trans in case I want to put it back to original.









Love these. One of my favorite cars ever.

My 1969 Fairlane Cobra Sportsroof, 428CJ & 4-speed(both std) and optional 3.50 RAR with Traction-Lock in the 31 spline 9"... Other options include Ram Air, PDB, bucket seats, console, AM/FM Stereo(was a big deal in the '70s)... Has manual steering but P/S conversion is in the works(gotta finish the Comet I bought earlier this year, it's the guinea pig for testing my P/S rebuilding skills)...

I've owned it since 1973 & now has 107K mi...

BTW the wheels & race mirrors were also options but not original, I added those & the AM/FM shortly after I bought it...





Pict with 42 year old daughter approx three weeks after purchase(scan from a faded pict, it's always been Candy Apple Red)...

That's a almost new '71 or '72 Country Squire Sta Wgn, headed west on I-64 in the back ground...
(No the image isn't flipped, I-64 actually heads due east at the section pict was taken)



At car show with daughter & 7 year old granddaughter this past Aug...

If you're referring to the mid-size Fairlane 500; I believe you mean the '62 though '64 models.

The '61 Fairlane (& Fairlane 500) was still a full-size (then standard-size) car.

'61 Fairlane

Yeah the auto makers used to come out with a new high end model then slowly demote it down the line as years went by... In '55 & '56 Fairlane were the top dog models(Crown Victoria was the real top dog but didn't sell in big numbers)... In '57, Fairlane 500 was top of the heap and by '59 the Galaxie had appeared tacked on to the Fairlane 500... Retractable hardtops for the '57-'59 period were the Skyliners while the Sunliner was used on the soft tops(Sunliner was used on converts for many years, not sure when it began or ended, I'm not a rag top man) ... In '60 & '61 the Galaxie 500 was top dog with Fairlane & Fairlane 500 demoted to schoolmarm status replacing the base Custom & Custom 500 models... 1960 & 1961 were also the years for Starliner that was basically a Fastback Galaxie 500...

Fairlane moved to a totally new model for '62, top full size model was now the Galaxie 500XL with bucket seats std... Custom was back, it and Galaxie were the economy models, while Galaxie 500 was the full trim model... This continued through '64 and in '65 the LTD appeared as top luxury model, with other models continuing in their previous rolls... It is worth mentioning the Fast Back models were back in mid year '63(as '63 ) & '64 but were integrated into the Galaxie 500 & 500XL models... I'll stop with '66 but there was a interesting 7-Liter(first use of metrics) model that was a cross between the Galaxie 500XL & LTD... That one had 428 engine standard and fire breathing 427 with two 4-bbl carbs as optional...

heres a recent pic of the 65 gal my neighbor/friend left me in '04...



looks better in pics than up close, original paint except quarters and roof - i stripped/reshot roof and pass.quarter in 04 - both quarters were bondo'd poorly when he had 1/2 panels put on in 1978...havent got around to the drivers side yet, its fugly, and all 4 door bottoms are gone... original paint elsewhere is a mile deep, BUT rubbed to the primer at most creases...Ben loved this car, other neighbors said he washed it every time he drove it. I bought new doors in 04, but just cant take a sander to her yet...
heres a link to the full story, all the frame rot, the year of 'fun'

That's actually a '68 model.

Here's what a '69 Monterey looks like:

IIRC, the only fastback full-size Merc. for '69 was the Marauder.

Youre right. I always mix up the years. Hes has a few 68 69s these past few years, so i always call on or the other wrong lol.

I know the Montclair he had (with the high compression 390) was an Ontario car, so that might have been built later. Not sure. he knows the history of his cars.

I can tell you every silly detail about my Lincolns though lol

The last year for the Montclair model was 1968; it was replaced by the Monterey Custom model in '69.

Nice old truck, in addition to great cruising bet it has the kick to surprise a few of the unsuspecting...

There is no power assist in the steering box, just the worm gear, before I replaced linkage it was 100% grunt... Power steering is accomplished by the cylinder on back side of linkage... This system was used by Ford & GM for years, with last vehicle being 1982 Corvette...
