Appears he was not original owner.BRIAN Found on “tip” at Wingdale Cruise, last night & talked to the widow. Will Be reporting more as we get .Said she would ‘probably’ sell it. PHOTOS…Later today.
Drake! How did this happen? 😮 You’re supposed to be on top of all this LOL 😆 😆
Brian has photos yet to be sent and he corrected me …It’s a Fairlane ,not a galaxie.
66 427 fairlanes had forward facing scoops like Jim Ryans. Teardrops ended with the Thunderbolt, maybe 66 Mustang. I think I did see a pic of a Fairlane with a teardrop hood and thinking he’s got the wrong hood 😮
BosMan…think this one won’t be original, sounds a little “modified” …cut out wheel wells and all. Gasser style BUT ,don’t know til we get the photos.
Hey, someone should get this one it would be good for the 4spd class at Island. I’m never disappointed when i’m in town . The mayor of Dover!.
Brian, did you lift the hood? Single 4bbl or 2? It seems to sit kinda high, does it have a straight front axle? Does it have a scattershield? Roll bar or cage? What type of traction devices? Is it in a barn or sitting outside? Thanks
Sounds like BossMan is “Kinda” inerested .Needs a stock grill and headlights …looks “bug-eyed”
BossGuy thinks it’s Stiil There…Maybe she’s “getting Tired” of looking at it …Need a Wingdale ‘operative’ to do a ‘recon’. ‘Upstairs Bob’ ,Bob Casey Or Rich Head …Maybe Romeo? Casey won’t make a gasser out of it …It’s not a chevy. But I can See it at the 2nd annual Nostalgia Drags !
Bossguy, grab it. We’ll get Charlie L. and put a Hemi in it. Make it REALLY run. 😀
