1968 Ford Fairlane Additional Info:

1968 Ford Fairlane Station Wagon. (The shaggin' wagon)

Although it was a born as a base Granny package vehicle (6 cyl, C4, drum brakes), it now sports a warmed over 460 V8 equipped with a cam, 429CJ heads, Weiand manifold, Edelbrock carb and MSD ignition.
Of course, you can't just build the motor, you need to provide a good supporting cast. Therefore the transmission has been upgraded to a beefy C6, and the base 8" rear end swapped in favor of the world class Ford 9". We chose 3:08 gears for maximum cruising comfort. The body is straight and true, the frame is clean with no sign of rust. A few very minor bubbles exist, (see pix) but the rest of the period correct Wimbledon White with "C" stripes really give this wagon a clean look.
The interior is all original. Thats right boys and girls, the carpet, seats and headliner are the original article. The headliner has two minor tears, but a brand new in box replacement goes with the car. All gauges and electrical work.
The car is a fun driver, and gets more positive comments than ANYTHING else i've driven. A fun, cool, old school surf hot rod!
A clean and clear title. We can arrange transport anywhere.
