Gastrick,
I designed this a couple of years ago for it! But then again... I may just go flat black! I'm givin' this car to Tripper Jr for his 30th B-day next month... maybe I'm make him save the $$$ of the paint!

I like the rendering Bob. I think that car would look good with color on it. How about a tinted primer instead of black and then make him save for the paint job.

Default Paint it!

Tripper,
Your son is a lucky dog indeed. I would love to see it painted like your rendering & I'm sure your son would too!

Default Rusty floors!

Hey... it's an old Ford!!! The floorboards were only 1/2 there. The previous owner had just put some funky sheet metal over the mess. All that crap gets torn out & replaced with panels from EMS.

Default Waiting with baited breath

I'm waiting for delivery with baited breath! I drove a 63 Ranchero back in high school, been lookin' for another for quite a while now!

Gastrick,
No kiddin'!!! I was pretty surprised the floor braces were in decent shape after the floorboards were so bad. Lucked out on that one & the rear panels are in transit. Feels good to get this part outta the way!
