Nice, I recognize this one. Pro Mod bud of mine sent it to me, I was researching Lenco's for mine. I think this was a hell of a deal though.

How much HP you gonna make, I backed off the Lenco thought due to thier weight and HP drain.

Just got a Jerico Fri.

I still love a Lenco though.

Re: 1966 fairlane

Probably good you haven't finished with all the paint and underside detailing, as there is no way that Lenco is going to fit a stock tunnel. Heck, just getting a T-5 to fit was a bit of a challenge. Our Fairlanes have a narrow, shallow tunnel, especially compared to Mustangs.

Having said all that - LOVE the Lenco!

My 66 has been rebuilt underside from back bumberto trans tunnel already been rebuilt to house a lenco as well to get to bell bolts better. Thought of that when car was tore apart. Frame tied together, drive shaft loop in 4 link, I missed nothing this time for I been through that stuff years ago with other cars. Dumb here but not plumb dumb. More you do the better next time.

Re: 1966 fairlane

Years ago this is trans tunnel that had been cut out and made more room.

Re: 1966 fairlane

Sweet, Im not 110% on board with that HP drain issue. I have video of a 66/67 Fairlane with a stroked small block and Lenco STS 5, carrying the hoops through first and second, pulling down mid 9s. I think he says he pulling arnd 700 HP with it.
Only question, how much faster would it go minus the 100 + extra lbs and HP drain with a Liberty, Jerico etc. But mid 9s with the cool factor Lenco - - I would do that. Rock on it will be awesome.
Your on track with the mods for the tunnel, aint a big deal, all you have to do is the holes or access for the rods and a new cross member point for the Lenco cradle, pretty easy.

Re: 1966 fairlane

Been a while and still awaiting paint, bummer. Man is so busy and I kinda understand he is following the money trail after I done placed over half down. I have not seen it say 3 weeks and should be primed in by now . It was pushed out and is promised to get back on it. However the back glass is out and it has rained inside . The sound proofing I had laid down in back is wet now. I will have to pull it out for am afraid mildew will set in. I did not know this until I went. A simple tarp or replace the back glass would of prevented a lot of worries for me. Oh well, glad the interior had not been done yet. All had been sprayed with primer, sealer and coated so hopefully the wet will not be a problem.
