Welcome to M&M !
There is a Fairlane specific vendor that advertises in Hemmings Motor News.
You should be able to find them on their website.

Is the Fairlane a hardtop or sedan (or do you guys use funny names like "Saloon"?)

The hardtop stuff is more expensive around the door windows but still shouldn't be $1500. The Fairlane stuff is a bunch more than Mustang equivalents, i need windshield and rear window rubbers and that's about $300 Canadian.

yep certainly wasnt kidding

Im also after a manual for one too guys...if u know of one around....ive got the 63 supplement, but i need the 62 manual to go with it....tyring to work out how to take the dash knobs off....they are different that our Australian cars

Also will the cleveland motor fit in these engine bays without any dramas.....the compacts are so rare over here.....and i have never seen one with a cleveland

The reason i ask is one of my friends is selling a complete ford driveline that has been fully rebuilt....obviously cleveland...and knowbody ive asked knows....they seem to think i wont be able to fit it.

Thanks again guys....your help is invaluable...there is bugger all here...only restoration stuff...and expensive...eewwww
