    I failed to mention that our altitude is generally 4000+, meaning at close to sea level, this puppy would probably run close to 12.50. Again, that's with the posi rear and lower gears. It now has a 3.50 dif....

    I think you're exactly correct. I'm going to install the door panels and rear seat. Maybe give the garnish moldings a quick green, maybe not, and list it. Probably go less than 10K. The distributor is really not a "fix", simply removing a screw that locks out the advance, and then retarding the spark back to normal. I will clean it up, maybe even wax the critter. The paint is very nice out in the sun.

    Always liked 57 Fords, big and small. You've done a great job of making one look even better.

    The Galaxie grille looks so right. Rounded hood corners are a nice touch.
