    When you were a young lad, did you say "BS" to the old Ford ad on TV, that said "there's a Ford in your future"?

    The future is here.

    Its been a long time coming , interior is one slow job . Check these out , going black on dash & front & back window trim .Got stainless trim for the front seat too.
    Carpet is formed to fit the Galaxie with rubber mat under pedals.

    So while we were going on about which was better Ford, GM or Mopar the third world crap took a giants share of the market. They are all great if made in the USA!

    This is why i really hated to start this thread. Myself , i like all old steel . I am doing this ford & giving it to a guy on the trash truck , i did'nt mean it to start a car war. So come on guys , lets keep our really deep feelings to our selves please. Going to have more pix on the build soon , its taking longer then i thought.
    enjoy

    Ok.And if you win, you will have enough money to buy a rotating assembly for the 350 and still have some left to buy a building small block chevys on a budget book.
