I've got a '68 FB w/289. There was a waggy on e-bay a while ago. Looked super nice. I don't think the reserve was ever met. If I'd of had a few K laying around I may have been willing to see what the reserve was. The thing was super cool in my book!

There was also a '73 or so wagon for sale near where I was working a while ago. Again was not in the market. But the old intermediate wagons are cool.

Well, I don`t have one anymore, but I have owned 2 69 Fairlane Cobra fastbacks, both "R" code 428 Cobra Jets. The first one was a C6, with PS, PDB, & A/C, with buckets & console, the other was a real plain Jane, 4 speed, bench seat with Man steering & brakes (4 wheel drum). Sold the automatic car in late 1992, & the 4 speed car about 3 or 4 years ago. I sure wouldn`t mind another one, someday!

Im new here. I have a 69 Torino GT Hardtop
One thing I am interested in is replacing the crappy steering. Originally had power, but now has manual (manual box too) Looking for suggestions on what to do to replace this sloppy setup.

thanks

You can use a power sterring box and adapter that convertes the box to manual it is avabile in the mustang magizines maybe thru one of the sponcers of this.I have one on the windbreaker and its nice and tight Used a power box from a lincoln versillis 3-1/2 turn lock to lock

Dad has a '69 Fairlane Cobra fastback. Originally a 428CJ, now a 427 side-oiler stroker with C6 and Hone-o-Drive overdrive. Has been in storage since 1980. I expect I'll inherit one of these days but I don't know what I'll do with it.

Heh, heh, heh. I've just never warmed up to the body style and I
tend to prefer smaller cars. I'm not really sure what I could sell
it for, but I wouldn't be surprised if it would bring more parted
out. I know what the kit cobra guys pay for 427 side-oiler strokers
plus there's the Hone overdrive, the 9" rear, the C6, disk brakes,
yadda yadda. Sort of shame since the car only has around 90K miles
on the odometer. Maybe I could find a nice rust free '67-'68 Cougar
body shell and swap everything over...

That combo in my old 66 galaxie was good for over 160mph, in that body it will do 180-190 if you drop the front and spoiler the rear in the cougor 150-160 tops and no improvement at the strip as both cars wieght about the same.

We have a 1968 Torino GT ragtop, with the factory 390 ci four speed, bench seat. It is the dark Ford green with black interior.Have always had a soft spot for the 68 to 69 Torinos, but they are not easy to find since most were cut up and used for street stockers at the local oval tracks over the years.

I have a 1968 Falcon wagon which is to say a 68 Fairlane with a Falcon front clip ,cause that is the was Ford made 68 Falcon wagons. The only other differences are the dash and Fairlane got a 3rd row seat option so there gas tanks are in left rear quaterpanel wile Falcons are under floor,this dosen't leave the space for storage bin under floor{if you don't git 3 seat.
