And why wouldn't they admire it?
it's a spiffy little fox.
it could be a star vehicle in a movie. I'd call it 'Fast And Fun to Drive'.

My father inlaw drove it today. An around the corner trip turned into a 10 mile ride. I'd call it " gone for 30 minutes "

My and the ol'lady took Dusty out to a car meet. Had a great time. Car runs and drives great !!! Still needs tires and alignment but I just can't resist.

The car beside me was absolutely beautiful. The paint was really nice.

I've been driving Dusty aimless all over Fredericksburg Va. Not a car group in sight.

I can't even find trouble when I want to. Smh

Not much action here today, other than our local car thief....and the fast typing guy that will need to tune this pig.

So....I got a chance to buy a friend of mine car. He passed away a couple years ago and his car is in the hands of another friend of mine. The plan would be to take the turbo set up, tko600, engine harness, and mspnp2 from Dusty and transplant it. The IRS, front o4 cobra molded bumper, rear bumper w/ saleen kit, cobra exhaust, and driveshaft would all get sold. My spare 306, t5, and carbed intake would go in Dusty with a different driveshaft, fox length 5 lug axles, and disc brakes.

This is the model of car. ( not actual picture ). It is black w/red in the chrome side molding. Currently it had weld wheels on it. Paint isn't as pretty but it's a well maintained factory black w/ red interior.

I had a chance to buy this car for 1k about 15 years ago but chose a 67 buick electra " deuce and a quarter ' instead. I may be able to get it for under 5k.

Oh...Dusty would go to the ole lady. She's more fond of the traditional style fox. Basic LX bumpers, camshaft, welds, and 2.5 tail pipes.

What do y'all think ?

Send me a PM if you're interested in stuff. Not guaranteed to sell until I get the car and title.

Be advised that the engine compartment in that old Fairlane is the same size as the one in an Old Falcon. In other words, there are big assed shock towers hogging up available space. Obviously, you can do what our buddy Drew did to his PBF to make room for the engine and it’s related accessories, as well as being able update the steering and brakes, but it wasn’t cheap compared to upgrading what you have. And If you want any size tire bigger than a 245 in back, better be prepared to get out your sawzall, because the existing rear wheel tubs are tiny.

If its a Hardtop car like the one pictured, then I’d be all for it. In car history, a T-bolt Fairlane was one nasty sonofabitch.



*Personally, I believe that I have the best of both worlds…..A car that “looks” like it came from that era, that i can easily bolt on brakes, steering, and suspension from a car that was 30 years newer all with an existing engine compartment that’ll accommodate a Boss 429.:taco:

It'll take some work. Strut towers need to be notched for the manifolds to clear. Firewall needs to be clearance for a Mustang Steve's quadrant. Pedal assembly might need to be modified. If I get this car the rear is going to be a shortened 9 inch. That means tubs. Have no idea what I'll have to do for the down pipe. My lady read the first post so I had to leave some things out. :runaway:

Yeah...well....thats not going to happen. He wants too much from me. Went from 2500 to 7k for a car that does need work. The front and rear bumpers are twisted ( that wasn't like that last time I saw the car ) and the tail lights are melted. I had forgotten that when the fire happened at my shop the car was parked on the back wall. There's also some rust in the floors, rear quarters, and the roof was caved and popped back up. For under 4k I'd be all over it. He rebuilds cars and flips them.

Oh well. There are some restoration dealerships around that have them for between 12k and 25k fully restored. This is a true 289 car though. I'd love to have it but it ain't happenin' today.

...another adventure. Supposed to be a 60k original unmolested 86.

We'll see how this works out this weekend. This one will be hers. I kinda started something with all the Dusty revert stuff. Her 82 GT is gone so on to the next.

Picked up a " Master Tow " tow dolly today. 300 bucks and I can't complain. It'll get stored under my back deck when I'm not using it. I have a feeling a few more cars are in my future. Ran into the guy with the 49 Plymouth again ( the really clean black one ). I actually saw the car again today. He's done a bit more so the price is still a bargain at around 4.5k. I need to find some cars to flip to feed my addiction.
