    Falcon Gasser

    Been a while since i posted: The 61Falcon Gasser build is back on track- 415"Smallblock Dodge, 727, and new toy- quickchange rear.

    Getting set to put in 4link-not as traditional as ladderbar, but i'm wanting it to work more than i'm wanting to be held to a standard..

    then cage, and some small stuff like plumbing, wiring, cooling, steering, interior, headers, shock mounts, bodywork, paint, lol.....

    Found the bare body in a barn, quickchange in a barn, Vr4 was in a barn/shop, lol.























    Funnycar rear, then run at dirt track, now back to dragstrip...



    rebuilt quickie next to a ford9"






    by the way- soak rusty collectors or any other steel in vinegar for a few days before taking to the car wash...

    WOW! Fantastic barn finds! I don't know which is more of a treasure... the VR4, the Falcon, or the quick-change rear end?

    This is promising to be a great build. Make sure you keep us posted with more pics... and once you're done, you should add your car to the SCH Garage!

    Thanks, guys. Work's been slow on the car due to the whole single father thing, but the 4 link is almost installed, then the cage goes in, and i have the steering finally scienced out:

    (there's only one guy that makes the parts needed to make a Ford car/steering box controll Chevy steering/axle, with a Mopar mill in between the two, and it's *this guy* right here, lol)

    I've got a few big ticket items to purchase, Axleshafts, coilovers but the rest is all 100 dollar or less items that i can piece together.

    did you make the fender flares or were they adapted from some other source.
    i think they look very good on the car

    Thanks, they were made from scratch using a shrinker/stretcher on a piece of L shaped sheetstock.

    I really wish the verticle edge on the side of the flare was smaller, like a 68 camaro, not a 08 charger, but it is what it is- i may redo them before she goes to paint.
