Thanks Mcpherson4055,
I've always wanted to feel incompetent and insecure. I've been working on mine way too long and have significantly less to share!! ? Here are a couple of pix of my 66 Custom 500. 1 of the car before I started doing any work on her, in 2014 and another pic of her after media blasting the shell and primer/sealer sprayed to protect the metal in 2018. Since then its been pushed/pulled/towed to 2 different body guys as I'm trying to get some fresh sheet metal welded in the rear quarters and a fresh coat of Wimbledon White. The F&R seats have been recovered, door panels re-covered in Galaxie 500 XL trim as nobody re-produces the Custom 500 interior (that I know of and its too late anyway). I also have a new dash pad and eyebrow pad for the instrument panel from Corvette America.

That's all I know for now...

Steve, that Custom 500 is a cool-looking car! I don't think I've ever actually seen one. Looks like it was going after the Cutlass and Monte Carlos from the same era.

That's awesome, Lynch! What did you have to do to get her running?

Carb rebuild, tank fuel lines, brake lines booster, radiator. Nothing crazy, lucky the engine wasn't frozen. Trans has a few problems but I got all 3 gears back, should've rebuilt the alternator. First Ford I've owned. This has stock ac, p/s, the works

Thanks man!
Chevy is easier but it's my dream car

I love that! "Beater edition"! That is so awesome! LOL I'll have to remember that. I'm sure i've probably seen or heard it before but this time I noticed it more. Maybe i've just been cooped up too long with the virus stuff going on! LOL
