    Well, been working on this gem for a few months.

    Recent paint . 64 mercury grill .
    Lowered . shaved handles.
    Last week I made a headliner for it. And started putting the t bird interior in.

    Hope to soon pull the 400 &727 and install the 318 & 5 speed ..


    Looking for some fast top interior panels in decent shape.
    A 60-62 imperial or 63-64 new yorker steering wheel. " square one"
    And a set of late 70s chrysler aluminum wheels.. "the solid dish ones "

    Located near pittsburgh pa

    It will be interesting to see your progress. The purist will cringe.

    im serious...it looks like it fits in pretty well...bottom seems raised a bit in the front, but otherwise the rest is looking pretty stable and like it fits well.

    I agree, but I figured that most people will confuse it with another car, especially if the interior is T-bird labeled. The front if the rear seat does seem a little high, but if it's still stock, it fits surprisingly well.

    The seat bottom doesn't meet the floor well. Plan to remove the bottom of the factory seat and weld it in so it fits properly.
    The seat back, armrest and filler seem like they should fit with little work.

    I'm probably going to use the console out of my 68 sport fury. . When I put the 318 and nv3500 in.

    Nobody knew what it was before.
    Surely they will have no idea now..
