Cool! I dig the 66-67 Fairlanes.

It looks like it needs a lot of TLC. And a good wash! I can't really tell from the pictures but is it a hardtop or a post car? It kind of looks like a hardtop from the one interior shot but I can't tell for sure.

Those hard tops have some nice lines. The roof line just flows on them.

That's a sweet project. How bad is the rust?

That fairlane is an incredible deal just to be sitting in your back woods. I used to have a 66 comet 2 door post car. Same as a fairlane just slightly different sheet metal. It was a small block ford powered drag car. What a seriously neat car. I still wish I had it.

I had a 66 Comet 2dr post ( sport coupe ) with a 289. But it was a rusty parts car. But it ran great. I pulled the 289 and swapped it into a 65 Mustang coupe. I miss some of the cars I use to own.

Did you hear the car scream "I'm free!"?

By the way I can't see any pics if you posted any in your last post.
