64 Airlane 500 more door

1964 Ford Fairlane 500 4 picked it up a couple years ago on craigslist for $500

First I did a simple bag job on the stock suspension on the 14” wheels…but I can never leave stuff that simple. I soon cut off the unibody rails at the rear seat and rebuilt the backhalf out of 2x3 with a 6 link. Triangulated lower arms with lift bars out back.

The rear end is a shorted explorer rear axle using two passenger side axles. 3.73 ls disk brake

Cut the rusty unibody rails out. Made new ones out of 2x3. Kicked it the rails 2.5" on each side to allow my room for the air bags
I notched out and plated the cross member so I can slide the motor forward all the way to the rack and pinion. That way I completely clears the firewall and gives me room to work on it

Upper Control arms are 1.25" longer than stock Mustang II. Camber when laid out -3 and +3 at full lift. At 2" off the ground it's a perfect -2.

Fixed it for you. Try to stay away from font edits. They make **** messy. Nice car and good work!
