Great looking car! I have a 64 that I havent been able to do much with, hopefully when it warms back up, but I just told my wife the other day if I ever get a chance to get a 62 or 63 I will have to jump on it. Something about those fins on the back I just love em. Nice ride!

The guy I got the car from never drove it on the road after it was restored the it has a bunch of things that need to be fixed and tweaked, it's running like crap It has an nos carb but I think it might need a rebuild and the aliment is waked and and on and on hopefully I can get all this stuff taken care of, It has 13'' us royal bias tires and there new but, I might change them for the 14'' with radials out of my Galaxie, I didn't like the way they ride, but it could be the aliment, anybody know what it would take to change out the 6 for an 8 it looks like it has a 8'' rear so that should be ok...

13's were stock 14's were optional, even on the Sport coupe.
When i got my 62, she threw in all the parts he husband had accumulated & i stuck the 13's with B.P tires on just for a laugh, driving it had a mind of its own, any kind of rut or low point the tires would follow the ruts, weave for side to side, how did they drive in a straight line with those tires!
Just switching to 15;s & radials made the car feel like i re-re;d the steering parts.
Thats a Beautiful f;lane & a great buy too.
lots of info & parts over at the Fairlane Club of America too
