Yeah, a valance or the tank look would help fill a void between the fenders.

I hadn't looked at pics of bobbed ones but now I have. Half of the stock overhang is my choice and thats because of how it looks on the side view. I know what I'd like to render but when I'll do it, who knows.

No more Ferd's for me either. Only one I ever owned was a 2004 E-350 van I bought new. It burned to the ground 6 miles from the dealership on the way home with less then 6 miles on the odometer.

Ford bashing thread, sorry Matt.


75 Montego. Blew the motor because the temp gauge didn't go higher than just under half way. After rebuild the gauge shot all the way up when I was driving. Of course, everything was fine when the gauge pegged. Not even hot. Last Ford I ever owned also.

You boys all had your new Pontiac money ready and what did you do with it?

Which of you wants to buy a lovely oceanfront house in Arkansas?

Squandered it on other "junk".
I did own a '73 LeMans for a few years in the mid-seventies...the "then" wife lost control on an icy road and smacked it off a couple guard rails and it bent bye-bye.

The '69 GTO I had in '72-3 had a 3 speed manual that started making clunking noises and when I pulled it out, I thought someone had pulled a crude swap, as it was a Ford top loader. I went to the dealer and was told it came from the factory with that trans. The Saginaw, or Muncie factory had a fire and weren't able to provide the transmissions for a while, so they resorted to buying them from ferd... Wasn't long after I replaced it, that I traded it in on the '70 SS 454 Chevelle.

Would you believe I knew about the Ford transmissions?

My 71 Ventura II Sprint came with a 307 and floor shift 3 speed Saginaw. Sold my 70 Skylark Custom before it, traded it (+ wad o cash to me) for my 69 Grand Prix Model J.

Pontiac had damn good trucks before the big one.

Was that pretty much irrelevant babble? Just trying to fit in.

There was a 74 Pinto wagon and a 68 Mustang and a couple Econolines among my folks' rides but they were all in nice shape. Man, I'm gettin soft... listen to me

And guess what... heres more Ford!

Down to making the last piece of the trunk latch support, and the two patterns relate to that. Sorta had an urge to make the top piece go gutter to gutter but nah, I think the seal bed will end up seperate.

As a diehard Pontiac fan, I figured you would know about the "foreign" transmission invasion..

Damn !! that support looks really clean...

Still not finished but nothing squirms around now and the position looks good, at least until I run across whatever I've forgotten to consider. The latch nuts are welded on and everything is 16 gauge except the front panel which is 18. Its looking like I'll butt that to the top piece.







This part is just cobbled up to stay in place, its next.

Still just making this up as I go .. won't know how it all will look when done exactly but the theory I am running with has the striker mounting to this plate with the tongue passing through a slot in the shell, inside a longer shell indent to clear the latch support.



While the Bronco convo is still warm, heres the new meat-







Final fussing over the 67 Ford pickup roof replacement-

Well I thought I would be slick and tap the plate, but broke tap instead.



No worries, theres room for bolts and nuts anyway.





I am happy with that, and it sounds like a trunk now. Didn't mess it up yet.



Lovely. And lovely, still-



I will go for a pretty piece on the seal flange back there.

I had the same idea with a thick plate inside the inner skin. I sure hope I don't break a tap. The plate is locked in between the panels now.

Why did you do it that way?

Because I assembled the skin to it and epoxied it.


If the latch doesn't work out fitting there, cutting in is no problem.
