Not mine, but a guy on my mail route is selling a '66 Fairlane GT/A 'vert. It was a nice sunny day today here in Cleveland, so he put it out on the treelawn today... Poppy red, black interior, black top, 390 automatic. Some rust :uhoh:, but not a total ECI-mobile :evil:... I can get contact info if someone is interested.

So where at in Cleveland? I work in the city (not the best part of it either) and I'd like to check it out for a buddy if possible.

I see you are in Grafton........I just moved to the same area last year. Fantastic place to live vs. the city!

I sent you a PM a few days ago but I guess you didn't get it. If the car is still available could you send me the contact info.

Thanks,
Danny

Sorry guys, been out of town this past week for a family emergency.

I don't want to post the guy's phone number on a public forum, so I've been trying to play catch-up and PM-ing his contact info to those who expressed interest. If I missed anyone, let me know (again) :uhoh:

I looked at the car a little better the other day... It has some kind of subframe connectors welded in, slightly below the floor pans. Not a bad idea for any unibody 'vert, but it leads one to ask why and when. Was the car getting 'soft' and this was a band-aid repair, or did a previous owner want to stiffen the car before it got rusty.

After driving my buddy's '73 Mustnag 'vert, I can see why someone would put the connectors in. Let me put it this way -- you wouldn't want to have your fingers in the door gap as you drove down the road. Man, those cars flex!
