I hate hubcaps

OK, I changed the ONE thing I wanted to change but I will keep the original wheels and hubcaps as they are in pristine condition.

If that was still her name and where she lived, I would agree but as both changed about 50 years ago and have changed several times since then, it's irrelevant.

Thank you.

Fear not, I have no plans for further changes. I saved the original wheels and hubcaps, they can be reinstalled in just a few minutes.

This site needs a bookie forum - I give him 3 months and would put money on a sway bar... he's a gonner... It alwasy starts with the wheels - but I'm sure he thinks he can quit any time he wants ;o)

Nice find...

Thank you.

I can easily avoid modifying this 64 1/2 because I have my 65 2+2 that is getting heavily modified ( Dart block 307", T56, 9" with 4.57 gears ), my 67 Fairlane Ranchero ( 390, 4-speed ) and a 1980 Mercury Zephyr ( turbocharged 351, AOD ) that has been my drag car for years.

Whenever I want to return to the 21st century, my wifes 16 GT is a thrill to drive even with only 435hp

I'll take your bets.

In all honesty, the very thought of modifying this 64 1/2 makes me queasy.

I like to just look at it and marvel in it's originality. The paint runs, the poorly applied sealer, the overspray, date codes, etc....

I love this car as it is. It's just that I can't STAND hubcaps.
