That looks damn good.
Thanks! I agree. I need to get over there and fit the heat shield for the starter and wrap the exhaust on the passenger side. I also need to help him with the last of the trim. Still, i love that he's getting some enjoyment out of the car. It's come a long way from this....

Wanted to post this since its Dad's thread. Here he is with his second car, a 57 Ford. He was about 17. Circa 1967. His little sister took this picture and she recently found it and sent this image to dad. I thought it was pretty cool....

Dad very recently acquired a refurbished set of trim for the sides of the bucket seat seatbacks. They are very nice. Someone spent a lot of time straightening, sanding and polishing these....

There are hand prints on the trim in the passenger side picture above. Not the best pic of that trim piece but check out the floor mat. These are reproductions of what would have come in the car. They fit very nicely and we like them better than the carpet ACC mats. The ACC mats don't have heel pads and they wear very quickly.

Dad is going to meet a guy sometime today to check out a complete power window/power door lock setup. It would take a lot of work to put it in but we'll see what happens.

Dad bought the power window/lock setup (pics to come).

From Dad: "I bought them. The switch on the console locks the windows from children. This guy is 75 years old. Ford guy all the way. Has several cars. Six of them in the storage where I met him. Has two 64 Galaxies. One a true 427 four speed XL and one 289 XL with 78 thousand original miles. Also 3 Mercury Cougars. One is an original 427 car, the other two are 390 and 351. Power windows were removed from a 63 box top in 1978 by him for the 64 289 XL but he never got it done and feels now like he is too old. Has several 427s and lots of parts."
