Just thought I'd add a few photos of my 1960 Dodge Phoenix. I bought her down from NSW about a year ago.
She is an older resto but still looks and drives great which is a credit to her previous owner, Neville.
440 motor, original tranny, 9" rear end. Four wheel discs and rack & pinion steering.

Can't believe it's been a year already!! Everything about this Phoenix has been done right. LOL So next time come up and visit in this instead of the little beast...

Yeah Matt, time marches on. The years move faster the older you get. Before I drive up in this I will have to arrange a bank loan to pay for the fuel......

Thanks Terry.

And that's where the little beast shined.. run on the smell of an oily rag!


I still get surprised at how thirsty my old girl can get on some runs.

Hi Marc, the disc conversion was all done by the previous owner himself, I believe.

All sourced from local Ford parts.

Stub axles are XA-XC

Front Calipers are XF

Rotors are XD

Rear Calipers and rotors are ZH

Still has the std booster but it is helped out by a VH44 remote.

After 20 years of use they still stop the car easily.

Thats fantastic, I would love to do something with my brakes but have no idea which way to go with them :-(

Thats all a bit beyond my knowledge level and I cant find anyone to consider doing it or even helping or selling me the parts
