Ford Hot Rod

Ive been thinking of getting an old Ford and restoring it, hot rodin it, resto modin it, or what not. But I dont know what you use? I dont want to get a Mustang because they are to much for a classic fastback fixer upper. I was thinking 1969-1971 Torino or a 1963-1965 Falcon. Anyone have any other ideas? Im just in the looking stage with a few ideas on engine and trans but not much. Just thought that you guys might have some cool ideas.

Glaxie, Falcon, Cougar, Fairlane. My buddy's dad just finished a Falcon and it is gorgeous. He did the whole Pro Street treatment and he drives the car. I'll see if I can get some pics to post up here.

Maverick. Not something you'll see every day, but can look really good when done right.

Re: Ford Hot Rod

I think the early 50's Ford trucks look better with the fat fender style. Late 40's to early 50's cars have some of the best styling cars for making a 'rod IMO. My parents' neighbor has an early 50's caddy just rotting in his driveway. If I had some cash I would be over there in a heartbeat trying to save it.

Re: Ford Hot Rod

'49 merc (coupes look cool, but I thought this wagon was pimp too):



Bonus points if you keep the flatty! Check out jalopyjournal.com for some sweet rods. They are an abrasive bunch if you act like a jackass though

Yup, my next ride when I graduate will be rod.

Re: Ford Hot Rod

I was thinking about a 1999-2009 Crown Vic in Shadow Grey with smoked lights, with a nice rake, a 4V cobra motor W/5 or 6 speed manual. Gut the whole thing make a custom interior and I nice set of fat tires in the back. What yall think it would be the perfect sleeper.
