1963 Ford Fairlane RanchWagon
« on: August 20, 2012 5:17 AM »
So as I was possiblely footin my mouth in my boot at kats kampout but I want to have the Mrs' wagon at karen & bolo's nuptuals next spring.

My plan is get it running & stopping / safe for heidi & the kids next summer. Then paint & finish later.


So the list of things right now is:

Front disks & steering rebuild

Rearend rebuild

302/aod

Seats recovered (need front buckets)

Fix  any floor rust

Then if i dont run outa time/ money get a solid coat of primer & paint the roof & body line thats under the midle trim

I was talking to Chad tonight and he's got my TIG welder, he was going to try building up your main journals and see if they can't bore it out.

Good Looking Wagon.  That will make a nice cruiser.

I got an AOD for you.  Came out of a '93 T-Bird.  Non-Electronic, it ran and drove good when it was pulled.  I will give you a good deal on it and even deliver it to Fargo.  The Windsor I can't help you with as I don't have an extra one laying around.

Well the wagon is in my drive way & the 302 is on my garage floor. The motor is suposed to have between 5 & 10 thousand on a rebuild. But its been sitting since 91.
