Gary and Corrie Baker's Fine Collection
From left to right then going back.
The car on the left is a 1968 Fairlane 500. I restored it this spring
(2002). It was repainted using 1998 Ford Emerald Green (close to the
orginal highland green) in base/clear coat. The interior was completely
swapped out and I installed a nugget gold interior from a 69' Fairlane
Cobra. Also added was a new headliner and carpet. Its powered by a
rebuilt 302 with a mild street cam and a rebuilt C-4 tranny using a
kit. Also installed was a 9" rearend using a 3:25 posi section. All
weatherstripping and rechromed bumpers added that finishing touch.
First car in the lineup on the right is a 1969 Torino GT fastback. Its
of my older restorations but is still as nice as the day I finished it.
had everything new or rechromed with several NOS pieces added. Its
Presidential Blue with the 2 tone 68 Torino blue seat covers. It has
PB, Air,Tach,Clock,351 W M-code bored 20 over and balanced. Edelbrock
intake and matching cam make it go fast. It has a rebuilt FMX tranny
9" rearend housing a posi with 2:78 gears.
Second car in the lineup is a 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler ll. Its a
Yarborough Special. It is all original except for a repaint in the
of 2000. I did have to put a headliner in it as well. Engine in
with 86,000 miles on it. Car originally sold in Ponca City, Oklahoma.
bought it from the second owner in 97' who owned it for 14 years after
bought it from the original owner. (Thanks Floyd!). Its my wifes
Third in line is a 1969 Ranchero GT. It is an orginal R-code truck
I've been told there was only 101 made total. I can't confirm that
It still has its original paint which is Wimbledon White and has the
gold interior. It has PS, PB, auto on the column and rare factory
air-conditioning. It will be totally restored soon.
Fourth in line and sitting in the garage is our 1969 Fairlane 500
convertible. There also is a picture of it below the first picture of
cars in its near finished state.
It originally was a lime green car but somebody painted it
white. We bought it off of ebay a few years ago and restored it this
(2002). It has been made into a GT clone using parts that I had sitting
around from other parts cars I have had or still have. The engine is a
rebuilt 302 and I had a FMX tranny rebuilt and a factory Ford shift kit
installed using a blue stripe vacuum modulater (adjustable). I also
installed a 9" inch rearend using a 3:25 open gear. I also installed a
Torino air-conditioning setup and it now has factory air in it. The
is a 69 Ford candyapple red (T-code) with a white interior.
I'd like to thank my wife who has been behind my hobby from the
and is also a great mechanic by my side. If it wasn't for her.... this
crazy hobby of mine would not be. We are members of the Fairlane Club
America (greatest club going), and have owned at one time or another
45 to 50 of the 68-69 intermediates with a couple of 70's thrown in for
measure. Its a great way to stay out of trouble and to meet and
socialize with others.
