    Surprisingly enough as terrible as the wiring is and the suspension looks it somehow shifts perfectly smooth and every light works - the interior lights and brake lights which will work in a minute when I install the mechanical switch that's in the parts box plugged it in while I was taking pics and they lit up. Even the heater works. All the interior pieces are there just took the ash tray and radio cove out to teach wires and inspect things. Horn button is on the seat and everytime I get it locked in its making contact so the horn stays on lol. I'll figure it out though

    Hello from Nebraska. You've got yourself a real jewel. If you need parts, Bob Drake and Speedway have you covered. Have fun with it. It's great that you want to pass the memories to your kids too.

    I'm sure you'll get a lot of help here, but you might even get more help at www.fordbarn.com in the Early V8 section.

    Best of luck getting it the way you want it!

    if you can load them to a computer, try to re-size them using the "edit" link when you right click on the thumbnail....reduce the number of pixels...that has usually been my problem with error messages.
