Hello. My name is Brian and I have just joined this site today. I have a 1965 Ford Fairlane 500 sedan with the original straight six cylinder in it right now. I have a 302 and a 289 in my garage of which I was trying to decide which one to do and put in place of the six cylinder. I have recently acquired a 1968 Mercury Cougar which I am going to part out and I have decided to use the 351 Clevland that is in the car for my Fairlane. My Fairlane is in very good condition with no rot in the quarters at all. The driver side torque box has some rot so I will have to change that but everything else looks pretty solid. I have had the car for about two years and have been driving it with the six in it but it is a dog with the six. The 351 will definitely help wake the car up. The interior is in very good condition as well. Nobody ever cut the dash and the only problem appears to be that the front seat is ripped which will be easy to have fixed. Once I start to drop the motor in the car I will probably start listing whatever problems I come across and what I do to remedy them in this site for anyone interested. I have a two car garage in the planing stages for the backyard and once that is done I will tackle the body work on this car and I will post my progress in here on that as well. I probably will not even start dropping the motor in for a few months from now and I am in no rush to get it done. I also have a 1985 Cutlass with a Pontiac 400 that came out of a 1969 GTO in it. I rebuilt the motor with a very good friend and it is already in the car. I also had a Turbo 350 rebuilt and put a TCI 2,500 stall converter in it. The rear is a 10 bolt posi with 3.73 gears. I also redid the suspension with polyeurethane bushings and put boxed control arms in the back to hold the rear. I also was able to buy springs for the car that are made for putting a big block in it. This car is almost finished with nonsense work left; such as the throttle and kickdown linkage, fuel pump, hooking up the gauges, etc. I will be completing this before doing the Fairlane. I also have a 1968 Chrysler Newport with a 383 in it which is in a friend's shop for paint right now. This motor has Edelbrock aluminum heads, an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, Speed Demon carb, a purple cam, etc. As you can already tell, I do not really have a brand preference and I like some off the wall car bodies. Well, that is enough for now. To anyone whom has read this; thanks and any comments you wish to make are welcome. Have a great holiday and take car!!!!!!
