Got another one done. It's paint in HOK cherry pearl with some Pearl Ex interference red added to a clear coat. I added a side mirror after taking the pics.

Very nice Jim. This is one of my favorite cars. I like the wheel choice and blue wires under the hood. Good job!

Thanks, guys. The block is painted Ford blue so I thought blue wires would look good with it. Wheels are from the Revell deuce coupe.

I've got this dumb kit. Your verision gives me new inspiration. I love that color, and the torq-thrusts make it awesome!

Good lookin' Ford..........love the Torque-Thrust wheels! They seem like they were made for the '66-7 Fairlanes.

Thank you, fellas. I've got this thing against steel wheels & dog dish hubcaps, so I very rarely use them. The wheels on this Fairlane just seem to make the car look fast just sitting there.

Good for you Jim! That steel wheels/poverty caps fetish gets annoying fairly quickly. Personally, I don't think you could've picked a better paint color or better wheels for this build.

Very tasty build. l've been trying my best to appreciate Fords more, lately. This Fairlane is making it a lot easier. l agree with your wheel theory. TT's do make anything look fast just sitting there! Great job & great choices! Bart

Many thanks, fellas. No more BMF will go on it. I'm going with minimal chrome. Even the chrome rocker pieces were left off.

Your Fairlane looks great, Jim. My first was a '67 2d hardtop with 289, so 66-67s have always held a special place in my heart. Yours is sweet...
