Hey Stacy, My car is a fastback. It's a 289 4 speed and I have installed a 9'' rear end and now I'm collecting parts to install a deluxe interior. It's undergoing a major restoration right now, as it hs been for a number of years now. When finished, it will be the original candyapple red with black interior. Also upcoming is 4 wheel power disc brakes to go with the stock heavy duty suspension.
No, I don't think so. I'd rather put the money in aluminum heads and go fast goodies like that. I have new lower control arms and upper ball joints, spring saddles and shaft kits, all NOS. I'm curious about the total control rack and pinion conversion, but at $1200 or so. it's a little high budget for now.
I added a Motorsport rear disc brake kit to my 9" axle. It fits "new ford" axle
size housing flange and the price was $313.50 plus tax and shipping. It needs
2.5" between the housing flange and axle flange. Check out M-2300-G. List
price is $395 Same parts as 95-00 Explorer rear brakes. Also fits 8.8 axle.
You need to supply parking brake cables, and jounce hoses.
I inherited this 1979 4door Fairmont sedan from a relative that passed away a few years ago and while it may not be a classic or as traditional as a mustang, t-bird etc. The body was in good condition and as straight as an arrow despite the passage of time so I want to put my own modern twist on...
Cheers all for the opportunity to join this awesome forum on the mighty & tough Ford's - I'll try & share my 30 years experience of owning & driving classic Aussie V8 Ford's And in turn will ask about modern Falcons where my knowledge is lacking...
So cheers everyony and keep on driving Henry's...
