    Default New Guy: 1967 Ford Fairlane 500XL

    Hi Guys! Been lurking for a while. What a great site and many cool cars.

    Here is my project...a 1967 Ford Fairlane 500XL. I've owned the car for almost 10 years. For that entire time it has mainly been stock. Original 72,000 miles. 289/c4 combo. Drum brakes. Reliable, but not very exciting. Been talking about getting some work done for quite a while, so at the end of August we finally brought her in for a complete transformation! Been talking with Rich Wait at the Hot Rod Factory, in East Bethel MN for a couple years. Love his work. Super high quality. So we knew he was our guy.

    Here some quick specs:



    -347 Stroker build by Patriot Performance. Dyno'd at 453hp.
    -Rebuilt c4 with 3000 stall.
    -Flowmaster 40's series mufflers.
    -Heidt's Superride front rack system.
    -Heidt's 4 link rear system.
    -Heidt's 9" rear end with 3.50 gears.
    -Wilwood 13" discs up front and 12" in the rear.
    -Cenerline wheels and BF Goodrich tires.
    -Plus much more!

    Interior is mostly all stock, un-restored. The paint is about 15 years old. All trim is original and un-restored.

    Here are some pics and YouTube videos. I hope you like her. She just got done last week. Won't get to road test until the Spring. Ugh!!

    Thanks much for the comments! The color is a slight custom mix of the original Sauterne Gold. In person it looks kinda goldish-greenish. People seem to really like it.
