I ve just down loaded 2 seasons of Hot Rod TV and Jesus what a **** fucken show. The reason I watched it was my brother in law wants to build a 60's American muscle car an he s ford boy trough an through an well we dont like mustangs cause every one wants one or has one and i think ford made more then mustangs back then well i hope they did. So the question is guys whats it leave us ? We have 6 Fairlanes 60-66 so they are out.

Well, if you aren't willing to do any cutting, you can build a pretty bad 302 based motor these days...with Windsor style heads. AFR 205's on a 363 could be a sweet combo.

I tried to get him to put the 390 in one of the fairlanes a rough copy of the 65 falcon but he s had enough the fairlanes besides we got them here new both localy built an assembled (except for the 390) Just been looking on flea bay seems the same disease has hit the states thats hit us here if its sixtes or early 70 s its quadrupled in value in the the last 2-3 years

The Gran Torino was a '72.

Big full framed heavy cars. Mine, with a 460 and c6, weighs around 4000 lbs even with no interior and the natural weight loss program. Lots of rust! But they look so cool!
