Did you rape a lincoln of all of its parts? I know you're running a 5.0 but it looks like you're going with the control switches and all the other gadgets you mentioned from a town car or something. Sounds like it's going to be a fully optional car with all the bells and whistles. Can't wait for more. Keep em coming.

Re: 63 Galaxie Boxtop - CMEDROP's Build Up

I am running a Lokar shifter, aod tranny and a manual console plate in my '63 Galaxie. So I had jeffshibby machine a shifter trim plate to accommodate the Lokar shift indicator. I think it turned out pretty well. (the console plate still needs to be re-finished)

Since most of all the electronics have been removed from the dash, we decided to tackle the wiring now.

I relocated the ecm and frcm again, and they are now mounted under the cowl on the driver side.

The American Autowire fuse panel has been mounted above the kick panel on the driver side.

Thanks

Re: 63 Galaxie Boxtop - CMEDROP's Build Up

we wanted to vent our a/c out of the vintage Selectaire trim plate, but it didn't look right from the side with out the factory box.



so we made a new housing for the trim plate that contours to it. just had to drill some holes to run the vent tubing.



just a front view with the new housing and Selectaire trim plate

Borgeson steering box installed. Fit my frame nicely. also mounted the Foxbody Mustang pedal arm, and made it accept the factory 500xl gas pedal.

Also abandoned the Flaming River power rack & pinion cradle kit. It wouldn't work with our engine / headers combo.
