For Sale: 1963 Ford Fairlane 500 in Springfield, Missouri


Vehicle Description

When I bought this car the body was in pretty good shape, never been wrecked or anything.  I built the exterior back as it came out of the factory only with PPG top quality paint with ghost flames on fenders, back fins, and trunk.  The painter was a skilled PPG rep who taught others how to use their product - a really good paint job.  This car has all the chrome that come out on topend models that year.  I stripped it down to the unibody-it has a 302 engine borred 30 thousandths over with ported and polished heads; high lift cam w/roller/rocker arms.  Engine has been completely balanced.  Cam gear is adjustable from low to high power peak.  It has a 570 Holley Brawler carburetor with gas pressure regulator and guage; a Mallory electronic ignition system; a 3" radiator.  Has always run cool, even in traffic and hot weather.  High rise Weiand intake manifold divided chamber.  Motor pumps out over 250 horsepower.  It has a F4 transmission quick shifting that was recently rebuilt.  The rear end is a 400 which is high but helps keep it from breaking loose from off the line. After finishing this project, the car didn't handle well at high speeds and after having front-end alignment men try to get it right it was still squirrely at high speeds so I bought an '03 Taurus carriage complete with 12" rotor disc power brakes with dual master cylinder, rack & pinion steering and stabilizer and it fit really well to the unibody.  This has made the car really fun to drive.  It hugs curves with no lean to it and handels like newer model cars.  It has Daytona Muffler w/ crossover; 15" Cooper Cobra high speed tires and cast aluminum rims w/ center spinners.  The interior was done by Larry's Auto Trim in Springfield, MO.  He did several cars for me and other builders over the years and always did excellent work.  I've had this beautiful '63 for 15 years and get it out only in good weather - never been rained on. I have nearly 40k in the car... would like to sell and would work with anyone really interested, or would be open to trade for a late model 5th wheel camper.
