    Great work. Sometimes I wish I was a ford guy so I could take advantage of all the cheap fox body stuff out there......but I guess I like doing things the hard way!

    A couple of years ago I bought some alternative gauge clusters for the wagon. Since I'm going 5 speed manual the one with the tach is the one I am going to use.

    That's what I had always wanted to do myself, but to a Fairmont Futura. However, a wagon would be just as fun, and perhaps even better in maneuvering.

    Nice update.
    It's a proven fact that red painted brake calipers will stop a car 10% faster.:rofl2:
    It's been tested for years on a 1955 Chevy station wagon.

    After letting this project just sit for years with the intent of building a 351 windsor engine for it, I have decided to go ahead and get it to a running driving vehicle with the mustang powertrain that's in it. I bought a 1993 mustang 5.0 lx and the mustang has inspired me forge ahead with the wagon.

    Thanks Grizz! However it seems I have lost the capability to post or link pictures, which is gonna leave this build thread lacking!

    I like the crown Vic wheels. Both my brothers have plasti dip on they're wheels a couple of years now and they still look good.
