    Exactly

    Agreed, (especially) '63 Galaxies are the most beautiful ever made IMO. However, although they were standard, 14" wheels are too small for these cars. Mine was special ordered with 15" wheels and T-bird hubcaps. It looked much better.

    I agree with Lux. Drop her down, slap some glasspacks on her then take Mom for a cruise and show her what she's been missin all these years!

    Great ride!

    Have to go with the majority on this one, blackwalls or stick with the same size whitewalls you have.
     
  8. Yupper skinny whites from an unbiased source (does that make me a radial source?)!

    Not a personal fan of bellflowers; I'd rather either see twice pipes poking out under the rear bumper or maybe even just use mild steel turndowns right before the bumper...sort clean up the line closest to the ground, 'specially if you bag it or lower it a bunch.

    You'rs is really sweet. Gotta agree 63 one of the best looking cars. Had one and sold it a few years ago. It was a 390 3x2 car with factory four speed with a bench seat. I don't like to think about it because my butt starts hurting because I'm still kicking myself for getting rid of it.

    2 years later..... it was cold. The top would have been up, but it doesn't exist.

    I'm still not convinced on the white walls. I want slightly larger. I'll be keeping the spokes that are on it. The tires are now 17 years old.

    Anyone know where to get 15" narrow white wall radials? My '69 OT Import had them (Michelins) but I can't find anyone who makes them anymore 185R15 or 205/70 -15 will work in a pinch. I'm about ready to buy some red line Tiger Paws for it....

    Looks sweet man. What size are the tires?

    Also I was looking at your other pics. Is that a dash overlay (over the original pad) or is it a dash cover (over the metal)
