    you could make early rims into the 35th, but it would be hard to get the t-bird on the cap correct....Rich
    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..

    you got to look at the whole picture when you deal with a car this old.. I do have two with good paint, but he others have had that clear coat used up some. I do have two good interiors and one even has a good dash still. The sun did play hell on these cars with all the black paint and all. One good thing, I do have one that is darn fast and fun to drive....Rich

    Jacob:

    Any photos of the engine? How about the build tag on the header panel?

    Going to r & r the whole dash or just skin it? Is the trunk clean inside?

    There is almost no rust under this car and it's low mile. Very rare to find that around here. And it's not got a jacked up body. It appears to never have had any body work done to it. I will probably replace the dashboard. Other than the dash the interior is great! Trunk is in good shape other than the board over the spare tire which is an easy fix.

    Hard to tell in the night shot - did it come w/clear corners? I think they look better on an Anny than stock corners w/the DOT orange. Looks like someone has already been into the top of the engine - sorry if I missed it...any idea if work was done?

    Front bumper skin hasn't been drilled for a plate - don't see that enough.

    If you can redo the clearcoat, you should be good to go outside, I think. Looks like the horizontal surfaces got the worst of it.
