Re: 1965 fairlane 500 sports coupe build

Got some more work done, most of the suspension is back on, have to make coil spring compession tool for the front springs, will be running brake and fuel lines then the motor and trans will go back in.


The old rear leaf springs were sacked out ( Flater) The new ones have more arch in them, and with no weight in the car the rear tire runs close to the fender forward edge ( you can see this in picture 1902 & 1905 )

Re: 1965 fairlane 500 sports coupe build

Nice work, looking really good!
Love those drilled rotors, You know brand name or?
On my 62, I;m running the optional Wilwood discs kit that came with Fatman coil over suspension, but rotors are just parts store,
I'd like to upgrade them to those rotors.

Re: 1965 fairlane 500 sports coupe build

The front and rear brake kits come from Rod & Custom Motorsports, Inc. , I paid the $100 USD extra per kit to get the drill slotted rotor and stainless brake hoses , I painted the calipers black with Eastwood two part caliper paint. With these kits he also gives you the part # for wheel bearings , rotors , pads and calipers that you can get ant any auto parts shop

Awesome. Thanks for the pictures. Those look like they fit well & may even work with my R&P. I'll have to look into those in the future when I am ready to redo the exhaust.

Re: 1965 fairlane 500 sports coupe build

Ya , I had concerns, as from what I have read is that it is hard to find short headers to fit these cars, and a lot say they do, but don,t.

Re: 1965 fairlane 500 sports coupe build

Well , got the all the outer body panel sound deadening on, wheel wells and all , made a block off plate from the wheel wells to outer body panel so you can not see the foil on the wheel wells and outer panel . Got the rear window deck panel padded and lined with vinyl and speaker holes cut out and made a way to hold the speakers done. Got the new head liner in, I found doing the sides the hardest, front and rear windows next.

Re: 1965 fairlane 500 sports coupe build

Here are a few picture of the car back in 1976-1978, I did not see these picture before today, How I know what the old hanger strap was from on the body under were the door opens, I thought being from Alberta, maybe someone had running boards on the car , never thought of side pipes. Took the car out to the guys house today that I got the car from, he seem really pleased to see the car running and for all the work I have done.
