DEARBORN – Anthony Guillebeau tells us he’s a true-blue “Ford Man” and as such couldn’t be prouder of his latest build – this spectacular big-block 1966 Ford Fairlane. Although it took him about five years to complete, we can see why he says it was “well worth it.” To find out what year Fords donated the Cobra Jet and Tri-Power setup, read his email message to us below:
“Hello, Ford Performance! My name is Anthony Guillebeau. As a huge Ford fan I wanted to send you a few pictures of my latest build. It’s a big-block powered 1966 Ford Fairlane.
“The Cobra Jet engine is a 1969 428CJ converted it to a roller cam and fueled by a Tri-Power setup that came off a 406 V-8 from 1962. It all runs through a Ford Performance Tremec TKO 600 five-speed manual transmission.
“There’s a lot more go-fast goodies included in the build, which took about five years to finish — but was well worth it. I would love to see my car featured in your ‘Ford Fan Spotlight’ if you think your readers would enjoy it. Thanks!”
