This was the first build that I did once getting back into building ...started in Feb. of '07 and finished it a couple of years ago. Kit bashed the AMT/ERTL 1965 Ford Fairlane Modified Stocker with the AMT ERTL 1966 Ford Fairlane.

Used the '65 kit body,seat and other interior parts...modified the cage for better fit and appearance....used the '66 kit for the engine/tranny and chassis components. Scratch built cage ahead and behind the main cage,added roll cage padding, wiring and fuel lines and shocks.... resin cast wagon wheels, scratch built the shifter linkages on the transmission...all decals done on the computer.

Stock 427 F.E Wedge Head with Detail Master pre wired dist. and oil breathers. Scratch built exhaust and used the deep sump oil pan off of the Modified Stocker kit 427

This build is a representation of the Street Stocks that ran here locally in 1979 ...this build was done in accordance to the local rules of the time.

...Thank you for the compliments....they are very much appreciated!

I filled in the Modified Stockers wheel wells enough so that the 8" (1:1 scale) wide tires would look right as per the rules as they dictated at the time....I don't recall having to do too much to the Modified Stocker body to get it to fit the '66 chassis.
I also cut out the doors and reattached them to give them a welded on appearance....

Also cut out the trunk lid for fuel tank placement....flattened solder for the fuel tank straps, computer mouse wire for the fuel line to the fire wall.
