BangShifter “stage1scott” has been building his killer Sublime 1967 Ford Fairlane Sedan for the past 22 months and is getting really close to big smokey burnouts. Scott started with someone elses project that already had a cage, ladder bar suspension, 9″ rear, fuel cell, relocated battery and more. He’s made lots of updates on the car and has more than 20 pages of forum posts that chronical the build. His latest accomplishment is the 433 cubic in FE Ford that just came off the dyno. With 464 horsepower and 488 lb ft of torque, the FE should be up to the challenge of moving the big Fairlane down the road.
Scott built the 433 along with JGM Performance Engines using .030 over Probe Forged Piston, a stock crank and rods, and Keith Craft worked Edelbrock heads. Thanks to a Comp Cams solid flat tappet cam, and Holley 850 Street HP carb, this Fairlane should move with the best of them. Scott plans on a tight converter to take advantage of the torque, and an agressive setup on the ladder bars to get the big Ford off the line in a hurry.
We’ve got a few photos of Scott’s build below, but if you want to see all of the Fairlane’s build thread in the BangShift.com forum.
Project update – 1/3/2011 – Since we last left Scott’s kick ass Ford, he’s been getting all the necessary parts together for the engine install, getting his C6 prepped for the nearly 500hp FE mill, and ultimately installing it in the car. The stance with the big block in the front is evil, mean, bad, and nasty. The large rear meats fill the whole, and we mean the whole wheel well, and that awesome Sublime green paint is still looking killer. We’re waiting anxiously to see and hear that Ford stomper fire up and shake the walls of Scott’s shop.
