Default 62 Fairlane project

This isn't a muscle car but not a rat either, so I guess this is the best place for it?

1st of several planned upgrades is finally done. 3" lowered front and rear, with new Fatman dropped spindles and disk brakes in front and lowering blocks in rear. Also converted to the old single chamber master cylinder to modern dual. It was anything but "bolt on", but it's on!

Before and after....

Awesome looking car!

While I've never owned a Fairlane, I have owned a few early Falcons. Fun little cars!

Haha - yeah finally, but it got better. They put out a "call tag" for UPS to pick up the incorrect spindles from my house, but instead UPS picked up a bean-bag chair that was supposed to go somewhere else and that turned up at the Fatman shop!!

I'll post some better pics soon, esp as I get on to the interior part of the project in the coming weeks. I posted some a few weeks ago when i first got it:
