Heres MY 63 country sedan home made spindals and cut coils
I'm in F'ING LUV, MANG.
let try it again
I'm going to paint it straight tripple black Base/Clear...
part of me wanted to panel paint it.
but most of me like plain ol bad ass black.
I just got this last week,
that's my 57 ford with desoto quads
Its good to see some other great 64 Mercury's around. Here's mine
Right now I'm installing a sound system and new carpets. Then there is a leaking core plug on the block (390 2V) that needs attention. A new wheel/tire package is possible in a few months.
I thought something was a bit off. HaHa. Desoto bumpers for it too??? I like them on 57-8 Fords.
Make it super straight and that baby is gonna be killer.
Here's mine. 1960 Comet looks a little different now, lower with some new parts.
I got a 64 Lincoln Continental I need to get working on, it runs and moves it just doesn't have any brakes or a clean gas tank. I also have a 64 Ford Galaxie 4dr, it was my grandfathers and my dads so I'm keeping that for later. It was hit in the rear passenger quarter and door. The Lincoln I want to do mild custom touches it looks cool already to me, so paint and interior. The Galaxie I dunno maybe a 60's custom or back to semi-stock just lowered. We'll see...
Here is my 64 again.
I'm working on a 63 1/2 Galaxie-gotta finish the interior and fix some wiring issues. Ditched the side trim and door handles, lowered the rear 3 inches. 390 power. No pics yet.
This is my 61 Galaxie Boxtop. It's a nice 75k mile 2 owner car. It just needs the motor done, and some rust repair on the quarters. The interior and the chrome/stainless are mint. I just can't seem to get fired up to work on it though...Might make it into the classifieds yet.
Currently doing finishing up on my 63 Comet. Will post pics soon.

Kornfedlifer, was that you in that car at the Arizona Vintage Drags last weekend? If so, that car was killer. If not, your car is still killer. The supremes make it!
