After wrecking our first top sportsman car, we decided to build from the ground up and do something a little different. That's when we found a 67 Fairlane Gt, drove to Texas and brought this fairlane back to Utah and dropped it off to our great friend and part time chassis builder.

After getting the car to the chassis guy, we discovered the car wasn't going to be easily converted to a 6.0 chassis... that's when we lifted the body, and completely started from scratch with a large pile of moly.
We quickly learned that every time we dug deeper, there was more and more wrong with this car. It had a large amount of rust filled with bondo. The windows were falling out, doors had chunks of metal just laying behind the aluminum panels and were just rattling around. The list goes on. So needles to say, our ambitious goal of having the car track ready within 6 months was pushed back a little. (3 years)

Argh. I really want to see your car. Love those Fairlanes, but you can't attach pictures here. Host on photobucket and copy the links.

I like the build. Something a little different. Any idea how much power the engine combo will make ?
