New FordSix Member in Hawaii

Post #1 by Derangedfords90 » Wed Nov 02, 2016 10:14 am

Hello all,
I am a new Ford Six member stationed in Hawaii. I have a 1980 Fairmont wagon currently that I bought originally to swap a 351w into. But if I was doing that I wouldn't have joined the group. Now my plan is to turbo the 200 and maintain that as my daily driver. I already have a line on an autolite 2100 that I will be picking up today, though the 1946 is a remanufactured unit and drives superbly. Next steps will be determining which type of turbo I will need, converting the carb to blowthrough, locking the distributor, and installation (and maybe sealing up some oil leaks. I'm sure the extra blow-by created by boost will exacerbate that issue). Later issues I would like to fix are the A/C, and body rust issues. Also the C3 is a concern of mine. Thank you for allowing me to join. I look forward to gaining knowledge from you all in the future.

Drew

A big welcome to the site Drew, and congrats on finding a Fairmont Wagon they are not so easy to come by. I like your plan for it in keeping the 200 there is a lot of power to be had with some work. Start a build log in the small six or Fairmont forum and good luck on the build :nod:
A bad day Drag Racing is still better than a good day at work!

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.
