long post (i apologize), but i've tried to be thorough. please feel free to reach out with any questions or if more pics are needed.
i've had this car for over 7 years, and it's never left me stranded or needed anything outside of regular maintenance (brake jobs/oil changes/etc).
63 ford galaxie convertible
clean blue title / antique auto registration (just renewed, so good for another 5 years)
9" ford rear
fatman tubular control a-arms (upper and lower)
fatman 2" lowering spindles
fatman brake kit (11" rotors and larger GM caliper)
ridetech shockwaves up front, regular double firestone bags in the rear on a 2 link
5 gallon tank
Viair compressor
autopilot v2 system (digital with 8 presets)
top works well (a few years old, but hasn't been outside much)
heater works well
all glass and trim is present
**the long trim that goes along the trunk lid is in my garage. i have the pieces, but not the small pieces to attach it to the trunk
full autometer instrument cluster
alpine screen
alpine 6x9's
alpine 4"'s
alpine 5 channel amp(i blew the sub, though)
new 15" chrome reverse steelies and tires (perhaps 100miles on them at the moment)
front seat was purchased "redone" already. so now the rear seat (which is original) doesn't match. it needs to be redone anyway, so the plan was to have it restitched to match the front seat (which is just simple vertical stitch pattern)
carpet kit is less than 6mos old
new radiator (i already have a 3 row aluminum that will go with the car. the current one keeps the car cool, but has a leak towards the top of the radiator, so you need to top it off often. does not leak down enough to cause high temps)
**i also have a new water pump for it that i was going to change when i changed the radiator
paint (if you're looking for a show car. i didn't want something that i'd be scared to drive to the grocery store, so i left it as is with a "rat rod" i don't know how to do paint/bodywork. lol)
**to this point, there is some bubbling coming up behind the rear wheel wells, and some filler cracks seen on the trunk. there's NO rust under the car at all
there's no e-brake. i did find an actual pedal for the interior, but i've yet to install it (and still don't have the "y" cable that divides to the rear drums)
no horn hooked up
no brights hooked up
