Hey everyone. I just picked up a 63 (390) sedan for parts for my 63.5 but have realized it's not in bad shape and I want to fix it up now. I have 2 1963 sedans and a 63.5 fastback but I'm looking for a daily cruiser that I'm going to try my hands at air ride and a simple 351 AOD setup for trips.
Here she is......
My other 2 cars are in a different state since the Air Force sees fit to move me around. I'll retire back up there in ND but this car is going to get the attention now.
I have these right now. The PSD is my daily driver and the stang is almost sold. It's too much and I want to build something the whole family can enjoy. Trips to the local Dairy Queen as a family are things to not miss.
I'm planning on a Fatman front frame stub kit with a 4 link rear and some bags on it. The wife likes the look of these red with chrome and we both love the look of 18" Torq Thrusts so that's the plan. I might talk her out of the red since it's all I see of these now. I'm working a Lightning 351 roller motor now that will probably be stroked out to an EFI 393 or so and put a slightly beefed up AOD behind it. It'll have AC, cruise, XM radio and a DVD player for the kids. I'm not looking for "showroom" quality but will get it close.
Once the stang is sold, I'm hitting this car hard.
My whole problem is, I've had troubles finding 4 door interior parts so it'll be a tough journey I'm sure.
I look forward to talking with you all and helping with what I can.
