Well I got lucky and grabbed a 1964 Ford Fairlane 500 sedan from a friend for only $250.
I don't have it at my house yet because I have no trailer, but should get it soon.
Don't much else about it yet, I found out it was previously owned by a Nun. :D Just got excited and wanted to start this thread. :lol
The car was drove into a barn in 1995 for brake work, and hasn't really been touched since. I can get her back on the road. :tu
Here's some pics from the seller.

#1. Get it running!
from there just tires, brakes, a complete tune up. I have no idea what type of condition this thing is in. I haven't even seen it in person yet.
Main priority is getting it road worthy.

Any ideas so far?

this is incredible, and a bargain! Looks perfect visually, except for maybe the ride height ;)
good luck with it :D

Thanks all, it is pretty nice. I'm wunna try to keep it originally styled.
The tasks I have found so far are:
Getting it running
New tires
Complete brake job
Battery mount was destroyed by busted battery, weld new plate in.
Remove rat sh*t.
Seat covers
Repair some major rust
Trunk won't open

And about the height, the front has regular springs, may cut some coils off.
I have no idea how to lower rear, this is the oldest car I've touched.

I love the rear bumper on your car. Its this 'barn find' kind of vehicle which most speaks rat to me. Gonna tailor my search to a car like this. It so reminds me of my signature car.....a true wreck i saw in Argentina but to me... a true rat.

look forward to seeing your progress. dont clean it up too much... :cheers

Yeah should be easy to get it low. I'll be getting lowering blocks for the rear leaf springs later.

On the other hand, poured some gas down the carb, the engine turned over.
Need to get a new fuel pump and it might run. :tu

First wash since 1995, also been polishing, it turned out nice.
