My Car - Snapshot!
Welcome to the SNAPSHOT!!!!! section. Here, I will post new pictures of my car
as I progress
in my Ford Falcon restoration, with big plans for the future..........
OK I promise this is last of the mechanical upgrades! Over the
winter I decided to save up the money and get a T5 5 speed transmission for
the car. Installation had a few hiccups but except for some fine
tuning its in. Expect a write-up with my experiences.
Right now I'm looking for some emergency brake components for the rear
drums. I have the emergency brake cables from a donor car as well as a
3:25 rear center section for my 8". While I'm at it I'll install new
driveshaft U-bolt hardware and dump in synthetic gear lube.
As soon as I have all the parts the 3:25 center section connects up to my
aluminum driveshaft, and the emergency brake will once again grace my car -
the previous owner completely removed it!
If all goes well this year the car will have all of the major mechanical
upgrades done, with the new interior parts mocked up. After that its
just a matter of getting the seats recovered and putting the interior
Wish me luck...
