    I too, generally prefer the '56's over the '55's, except for the '55 Crown Victoria. I may be biased though, as I owned one when I was a young lad.

    A new iteration from themoose, which I think is a winner. The red/whi/blue is a close runner up[​IMG][​IMG]

    No engine or tranny when purchased. I bought a complete 78 Granada with 302/c4 for $100 for a donor. Replaced c4 with AOD.

  27. I see the door flipper has failed to return the trim above the window to the correct position. I had problems with them on my Htps.
