Re: 1966 fairlane

No money to build a shop but at least I got a one car shop to work on one car. I reran all wireing harness inside rubber tubbing I got at swap meet then put it back. Shissh agravating. Then I removed interior , sanding down inside tubs , cleaned and painted with rust resistant for floor boards. Then used the adhisive to stick sound proof down after cutting it in place.

Re: 1966 fairlane

Got stearing wheel on after I redone it red. Polished chrome while watching tv. Placed carpet in temporary so I could see what console looked like after I took 2 and made one. I used uphostery paint and the color at least matched , turned out well for me anyway.

Re: 1966 fairlane

Placed clutch pedals in car today, below is pics . Removed mastercylinder and automatic pedals. There is a bar attached to firewall with 2 bolts, removed. Unbolted stearing , 2 bolts and dropped. 4 bolts to remove , 2 of them holds clutch and also other 2 together holds the clutch bolted to firewall. Inside car after the 4 bolts removed you can remove the bracket between the clutch housing and firewall. If you leave the 4 long bolts in firewall instead of just removing the taps you will have a hard time getting pedals out, remove the studs holding all together so the plate inside car will slide out. The automatic pedal slide right out.
I placed the clutch pedals around the stearing column back where holes line up on firewall, slide bracket between pedal bracket and firewall. Went under hood and screwed 2 of the long bolts back in, leaving 2 that holds mastercylinder out for later
Back under dash I replaced bar in pic below back to stearing and top of bar back to bracket. Replaced switch back on pedals, replaced clutch rod . Car was an automatic so have to knock out plug for clutch rod . Replaced clutch rod with carter key. Back under hood replaced rubber boot to clutch rod and replaced z bar. Placed matercylinder back on to add last 2 bolts to clutch bracket under dash. All was Kinda aggravating but finally have pedals

Re: 1966 fairlane

My builder got sick and set back in time to complete the 427 stroker going in my fairlane. I picked this 427 up on ebay couple weeks ago in Penn state. 1965 std bore . 11.5 comp.rato TRW oistons, lemans rods, C5AE-$steel cross drilled crankshaft. 642 roller cam/lifters/crower pushrods/PRW steal roller rockers, dove spider heat barrier coated intake, milodon 7 qt oil pan. Heads are from a 406 G code motor . Carb is a 850 holley, Not too bad for a street car. Guess I go with a top loader I already have being a lenco cost as much as a home does.

Re: 1966 fairlane

Has anyone took out the column and stearing wheel out of a 66 fairlane and replaced it with a column and wheel that is for a 4 speed in floor? I been working on that sucker for a few hours and finally got it in. I took the shaft and whole thing out of a 66 gt that had been sitting 15 years and everything was froze up. Like to have never got the column out of car and roller bearing in other shaft to come out. Never wish to do that again.

Anyone need some 66 tail lights and a column out of 66 with a 3 on the tree? I am gona use 67 tail lights, like them better.

Re: 1966 fairlane

Seems like forever but here she sits being blocked out , paint will not be much longer I hope. Was gona be white but changed my mind. Color will be Black Cherry . All the emblems will be powder coated gold. 427 old stock emblems attached on front fenders. One single kitchen match 3 inches tall right in front of doors on each side nicely done showing as it is just been lit.That will be my small flames, Letters F.O.R.D on hood and trunk powder coated gold letters......Still looking a good deal on a 5 speed lenco but have top loader rebuilt, hays clutch that came in as well blow proof bell housing.

Re: 1966 fairlane

My poor 427 still sits in race car trailer awaiting to be installed after paint.
Under hood bay will be same as outside car, black cherry. Have both new bumpers .
Wine color carpet, console , roll bars and seats should match Black cherry .

The sound system will be done at Sound Station, local shop that does great work. The speakers will be done as normal in car neat , box in trunk mounted, already have system awaiting.

Tubs showing in trunk paint white with roll bars coming into trunk Black Cherry with surrounding interior of trunk Black Cherry leather around speakers and around fuel cell. Cell is already red. .......Been a slow go 5 years in making but short rows coming.

Re: 1966 fairlane

I need ideas please. Been so long now under the car rear end and such is starting to surface rust. Clean will be easy but what color to paint ? Underside body same as car color ? The shocks were new but now , still are but does not look new anymore. Place more new ones? Take a while but tape springs around shocks and paint ? What color to paint rear end housing ? Paint it a steal color , I donot like black.

Re: 1966 fairlane

I like everything to look neat and detailed...I'm not a big fan of body color everywhere....If it was me I'd probably paint the underneath a charcoal-y color and do rearend and suspension parts black...But I also like seeing the different manufactors colors left alone, to show them off...Like ladderbars or 4 links left the color they came..shocks might be adifferent color maybe not...of course fuelcell is gonna be red.

Since you don't like black....the car would look good with the blackcherry underneath and suspension, rearend, driveshaft..all that stuff in charcoal-y.
