voteing is over,,,and the winner is BLACK,,,have already wiped block down and shot with 2coats of gloss black....altho burgundy was a good idea and I liked it very much,,for 1 couldn't find it test with and I kinda leaned toward black,,,most any other time with a doubt the motor would be blue,,but not this time.....thanks to all....POP

The Falcon motor is the first SBF I've ever painted black. No, I'm wrong. I had a 64 in a Galaxie that came black with red tin so I did paint one black before. I put that motor in a 50 shoebox business coupe.
66 Cyclone GT; 245/60R15's on 15x8's and 215/70R15's on 15x7 Magnum's.
There's nothing like the sound of a pushrod V8 singing at the top of her lung's.

Tell me about it, been getting bad sinus issues off and on for the last couple of months. I never leave the hill unless I have to (hermit) and usually my have to's are going to visit someone in the hospital or nursing home, come home sick every time :roll:

One reason I have not been pushing too hard out in the cold and damp to work on the Comet, I don't want to die of pneumonia before I get to drive it again.

See Ya,

Hi POP
Just wanted to know more about your 63 Fairlane that you mentioned.

WAY BACK WHEN,I had a 63 fairlane that had 5 hole 13in whls on it with a 221 cu in v8,,,pop



Say POP was that fairlane a super coup with bucket seats and a t-10 4 speed. I had a white one with red interior. Loved that car. Installed a 65 mustang 289 that I hopped up and Fenton 5 spoke mags with 5 holes.
