Beautiful build...unbelievable attention to detail.

Really wish I had more to update here, but honestly been having too much fun driving it to take it off the road and fix things.


Tis the season:

I also enjoyed the driving the Vic around so much prior to teardown and the driving dynamics of the truck, that I decided to buy another one for a daily beater.

All these threads make me want to do this.... There is a whole row of crown vics at the local auction lot.....

I love this whole idea!!  I really love the look of the 60's and early 70's Ford trucks (Owining a "highboy" someday is on my automotive bucket list) and let's face it, the Crown Vic is a great, proven, durable platform.  Properly looked after, they will run practically forever.  

Great job!!  Now I have another potential "future project" to daydream about.  Doing a similar swap with a Ranchero would be equally awesome, but those are hard to come by.....

Found some video of the first time driving it around the hood:

Ugh, didn't make the Challenge again this year thanks to work commitments, but I did manage to get a few hours done on the truck interior to make it look a bit more presentable.

Can't get vids to embed so here's the links:
