Default 1967 Fairlane Super Stock

I started this project a long time ago than changed my mind and it was going to be a street car and stopped working on it. Fast forward to 2013 and the Super Stock project is back on. We have been working on Modified Mustangs & Fords magazine Coyote powered 1966 Mustang project car and they want to do a few drag racing stories so they talked me into finishing the 1967 Fairlane. At this time the plan is to run a 390 with a C4, CalTracs and OpenTracker front suspension http://www.opentrackerracingproducts.com/

This is what I started with



We installed the roll cage



Stripped everything down to bare metal than epoxy primed with SPI black epoxy







I finished the major bodywork



OpenTracker front suspension http://www.opentrackerracingproducts.com/



I will be painting it SPI Red

We are building this kind of old school mini tubbed with leaf springs. It may not be the quickest but I think we will have some fun.

My 68 is having major header issues. The Mustang ones will work if I cut the member. Many guys put a bolt in like the Mustang. They are much smaller and allow more room for the header. It will also aid in oil pan removal should you need to pull a rod. This is my observations only and I still haven't cut mine.

Rusty...Nice build. How big of a rear tire will you be able to run with the mini-tub? How wide was the strip you added? Thank you...MB.

We can fit a 10.5" with no problem. I need to measure again and figure out how big we can go and if there is a good tire in that size. We added a 2" strip if I remember correctly.
