I'm in the process of restoring some 1964 Galaxie hood components to factory original specifications. Does anyone know the correct color/finish for the following:
1. Hood pin (includes a spring and two end-caps: screws into hood)
2. Hood latch hook (held onto hood with two bolts)
I have the engine tag for my 390 that Ford started putting on cars in January 1964. My understanding is that most of the tags were lost, so if you have your original engine tag you should consider yourself lucky. My question is, where should the tag be installed on the stock 1964 390?
Am looking for a few small pieces to replace he old ones on my 1968 Thunderbird. Need the chrome trim for both the hood and the trunk. Am also looking for an antenna and the headlight grille covers (must have the glass emblem in them). I want to keep the car as original as possible.
Trying to decide if I should pull the trigger on a '69 XL in my neighborhood. It's a two owner car with original everything. Paint needs some buffing, interior some cleaning and a new vinyl top. It has a rebuilt 390 128,000 total miles and seems to be in good running condition. It has zero rust...
