    I am a GM fan, but I always liked the ‘57 Ford Custom body. Would have enjoyed owning one. My Blue Oval buddy would have loved it!! I believe the Custom (300 ??) was a little shorter, wasn’t it?

    The Custom and the Custom 300 are both the short (114”) wheelbase models with the post. The 300 came with the gold anodized side trim, whereas the bottom of line Custom had the single stainless side spear trim. My Custom Tudor is currently for sale.....

    I'm just not diggin that yellow on the Custom 300 above. It just needs the "yellow cab company" decal on it. Whereas the Del Rio wagon 2 pics above with the Inca gold/ Colonial white looks fantastic.

    I really need to lower the front end. I used Aerostar coils on an Edsel wagon and it was damn near touching pavement. Too low for Indiana. Any recommendations ?


    Wanted! Olds 394 Hurst motor mount and dual point distributor

    Buddy of mine used the Aerostar springs with a 1" spacer on his 57 and it came out perfect with a much improved ride.
