Smile Hi i'm new here

Hi I didn't see a intro place so I thought that this would be the best place. I have a 63 falcon sprint four speed thats down in OR in a barn up on blokes...And My plan is to make in into a "sleeper" it has a 302 and we are going to make it into a 300hp 302,,,so it will have some power but won't wear out fast...we also want to put some disks on the front (and somday on the back) throw some inverded rims lower the front about 1in...but the bigest thing is we want to make it corner really well...so that my plan =)

Welcome! So speed is your need

Falcons make great sleepers. Subframe connectors and wide tires should help the cornering. Post some photos when you dig it out of the barn...

Sleeper?

What's a sleeper? The opposite of a daily driver?

A sleeper is a car that doesn't look like much from the outside but usually has a drivetrain made for racing...

As opposed to a car that really tries to show off what's under the hood...
