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!”
Editor’s Note: One of the most popular features on FordPerformance.com and in our Fast News e-newsletter continues to be "Ford Fan Spotlight," where readers can send in their own reasons why they're fans of Ford Motor Company. You know who they are: Ford "superfans;" grassroots Ford racers; unique Ford vehicle owners; loyal Ford enthusiasts; notable Ford club people; special Ford families; and/or any avid supporter of Ford, Ford vehicles, Ford motorsports or Ford Performance who deserves a little bit of special recognition.
All you need to do to get you, your car or candidate considered is to send in a brief description (200-500 words or less) and a few photos (in .jpeg format, preferably 300 dpi) of a person (full name and hometown, please) and vehicle that you think Ford Performance should feature (and why) in the "Ford Fan Spotlight" for an upcoming installment of Fast News and posting on FordPerformance.com. Then email it to: AskTFR@Ford.com. Should you wish to send a video, you simply need to post it on www.YouTube.com (preferably 1-2 minutes long) and send in the link, along with a brief description, to that same AskTFR@Ford.com email address. We'll choose one submission each week.
