Plenty of 4 doors, but never a 2 door HT. Looks good. Right in my back yard too.

a bracket (shock mount) onto an axle tube on the vehicle? Or should you pull the axle out and drain the oil? It would be about 12"- 15" from the flange.

I have a customer who ordered a 704 hp. Ram TRX 10 months ago. Truck came in this week and the dealer offered him 20 grand not to take it and let them have it. He took the truck. Said it cost him a tad over 100k with the taxes.  Sure makes that R Comet look cheap at 41K.

Drove by this last week. This is an actual PA State Police car. It's a Galaxie custom, not a 300. That was surprising. It is a 352 4 bbl 3sp. over-drive with a/c, certified speedo, 4 way flashers, backup lights, hd alternator and not much more. the drivers door was missing so no data plate. Looked like just a standard suspension with 3 inch brakes.

Yeah, I know it's potentially a religious topic, so go ahead and sue me.

Member Projects / out with the old...

...and in with the old. Yesterdays project was to put a vintage Hurst comp. + in the 4 dr. Gal.  I hated to do it but the factory shifter was just shot. It had about 4 inches of play in it and 2nd & 4th were back into the seat and no longer fun to drive. Mostly straight forward but the handle was nowhere close.  Cut it off, shortened it and got it where it needed to be and re-welded it. I never realized when I bought it, (sight unseen) that old Hursts had the handle welded on rather than bolted.  Sure makes the top-loader perform. As usual I had every tool I own under that car and was totally fa-bushed from the 400 trips to the tool box but well worth the results.

FE Technical Forum / light switch
« on: November 30, 2019, 03:43:53 PM »
On my '63 gal project that had been setting for 40 years, the headlight switch is frozen. I can rotate it and turn on the dome light, but it won't pull out. I have a new one but in order to change it you have to pull it all the way out and push the button to release the knob. To make matters worse, the fuse holder is attached to the bottom of it. I Kroiled it, beat it with a hammer. Any Ideas other than drive it in the day light.

Only this one's mine. Local car, knew it from new, one owner. Tried to buy it for 40 years but the owner said no. Run into him a few weeks ago and he said maybe. Made him an offer he couldn't refuse and he said sold. Four door hardtop XL, 352 and always garage kept. Parked it in '79 because of the gas crunch and never ran it again. Time has been tough on the old gal, but maybe she can be saved. Motor is seized, mice crap and mold everywhere but the interior is mint including the padded dash. The bright work and rubber is mint. Some usual east coast rust, but nothing fatal. Seems he had a gauge and horn fetish, but what a cool car. Even the plug wires are original.
