    Yeah, they are. (I had 3 of 'em in the '60s) They (Customline/Fairlane) share the low roofline with the Vicky, but have the small chrome trim.
    Probably my favorite Ford.

    Well alright! It sounds like you've found a project that has a lot of the hard work already done. Can't wait to hear what you've got in mind for this.
