    Default 19666 Ford Falcon

    So, i've been holding back to starting this thread because, well the car really isn't stanced but I haven't really contributed nothing to this forum for a while so I'll go ahead and start the thread at least. I should be lowering the car soon (next couple of days?) then I will be either getting the wheels widened or getting some cheap dsr's or save for other wheels, idk yet.

    So ya, the car sorta started out like this:



















    then did a disc brake conversion



    also starting building a motor on the side to put in it at some point before I'm dead







    then yadda yadda yadda here it is now





    I've actually done a lot of modifications to it including custom radiator brackets and stuff like that and a grenade for a shifter handle and blah blah blah but I felt like this was enough for the first post. Once I lower it and get better pics I'll update with more specific info

    ^ that. Looking forward to this build. Far from typical.

    Nice work so far.

    never seen a two door falcon before (only four doors down under), it looks cool!

    k so some more info, it has the original 289 in it right now. It made 3xx hp and 5xx tq with a 150 shot of nitrous, um, I have it planned to paint it all black.

    When we took off the vinyl top a lot of rust was actually hiding underneath it so we took care of that and painted it to where you see it in those cell phone pics




    The original radiator had a side on it hanging off so we tried to braise it and we burnt a hole through it so I got a 3 core radiator from a junkyard that had similar inlets/outlets so I had it pressure/leak tested and it was good. Turns out that it's either a 60's chevelle or a 50's truck. It works pretty good, I have custom rubber mounts underneath from rubbing the frame then we made radiator mounts out of this metal stuff and it works really good, it came out really tight




    We've also been welding quite a bit on the back near the rear window because it has a lot of rust back there.


    So my car has always had trouble turning over idk why might have been cause I relocated the battery to the trunk so one of my recent purchases was this yellow top Optimum battery, you can see the nitrous bottle bracket right there next to it


    and then here's a bad pic of that grenade shifter handle I was talking about, it's on a B&M pro shifter


    let me know if some of these pics aren't working, I linked some of them from FB but I think I have them unlocked.

    edit: and here's a pic of my tag

    you might need thicker power cable. that red stuff doesnt look quite hefty enough for a rear mounted battery in a v8? also make sure it takes the most direct route possible, to minimise the length. also, make sure you are getting a really good earth connection.

    arrgh, I remember ye from FG, saw your build thread, your car's coming along nicely too


    so an update, I took off the shackle kit/ladder bars/traction bars and put the original ones back in, and, why I do think it lowered it a little, it didn't lower it enough lol. At first I wasn't gonna take a pic cause it looks sooo bad but I decided w/e haha. So here's a pic



    so we were talking and I heard around from some people on the internet that you can either flip the leaf springs upside down? or you can use those blocks or w/e. So I mentioned them, and my roommates said that you can get those from like truck performance shops? So tomorrow I'm gonna go to the local 4x4 place (we have a bunch lol) and get some blocks and hopefully put them in. So tomorrow I should have the car level, maybe just a little higher in the back, and I'll take pics. If I have time I'll try to take some video and maybe do a burnout or something, idk we'll see.
