FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN, RUN BOY, RUN . . . . THE LATEST ARRIVAL AT THE COMPOUND ON THE MOUNTAIN, A ROUGH BUT LOVELY AND COMPLETE '67 FAIRLANE GT . . . . ARMED TO THE BACK TEETH WITH A VERY TIGHT AND TOUGH 390 FAT BLOCK, IT'S DUE FOR A COMPLETE REFURB AND GENERAL GOING OVER . . . . RAZOR SHARP PANELS ON THESE ARE ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL.
Always, always had a major hard-on for the two door Fairlane, clean, crisp and super sharp lines that were about the sweetest of the era, did great guns on the Nascar circuit of the time, multiple engine options and cheap as chips relative to the day as well . . . . Chook's and my mate's just had this one delivered from some like minded mountain maniacs in Tennessee, straight to the hillside retreat for the impending reconstruction process, bloody good starting point, straight body, solid interior and one very tough, nicely sorted, bored out 390 big block, perfect Christmas twiddling fair. Pay no mind to the ridiculous offset on the rear rollers, it's all gonna change shortly . . . . well, as soon as the El Rancho and the '67 Mustang are done and dusted . . . .
