In 1972, D&R Engineering transformed this black Fairlane post car into a 427 S/S. It was a six-cylinder car when new. Talk about rare. (Photo taken at Island Dragway.) In 1976, John Downing, tired of winter, moved to Florida and opened John's Little Kars, a body, paint, restoration, and service facility in Venice, Florida. It's still going strong today. He and John Healy are also contemplating restoring 427 Fairlanes and Cobra Jet Mustangs. For sure, they're two of the nation's very best sources.
