Needs More Carbs: 1959 Ford Fairlane

If you are going to build a NASCAR replica there are a few key highlights you need to hit.  First, you need stickers...lots of 'em.  Then you need a big pushrod V8..please no overhead cams or turbocharged V6s...and finally you need to suck fuel through a venturi.  I know that NASCAR adapted fuel injection for the Sprint Cup series way back in 2012 (the future is here folks!!) but I think that any NASCAR vintage car should hose dino juice through the sundry ports/chambers/pumps/check-valves in a carburetor.  All this next car needs is a downgrade to a Holley 750 double pumper.  Find this 1959 Ford Fairlane offered for $6,900 in Cincinnati, OH via craigslist.  Tip from Rock On!

  3. I'm with you, even though I'm typically into EFI. A carbed vintage motor would make a bit more sense... unless you put an actual injected NASCAR motor in there. That would be very cool too.

    BTW, looks like there's a spammer in here.
