  1. 😄 Thanks Mike. Yeah, I'm a Chevy man but there are a few Fords that I do like a lot.
  2. Thanks Mark. I'm not a big fan of Fords but there are a lot of them that I do like and the 61 Starliner is one of them. I really enjoyed modifying this car cause I've always wanted a 61 Starliner and now I have one.
  3. Thanks guys for all the kind words. Here are the only pics I have of the engine compartment.
  4. I posted the finished pics in the Under Glass section. Thanks Chris Jr the third for your help.
  5. Here are the finished pics of the 61 Starliner I converted from a Galaxie. Thanks to Chris Jr. the third and a couple other guys for the parts that I needed to complete this build. It's great to have friends who are willing to help when needed.
  6. Nice one Charlie. I too like the color.
  7. More pics as of this morning. She's almost done.
  8. Thanks guys. Charlie, it's harder than it looks fer sure. I hope you have a lot of patience. Good luck if you go ahead with the conversion.
  9. Thanks guys. Here are a couple pics that I took this morning. A mock up fer now.
  10. Thanks guys. I also think that the 40 Ford and Willy's are great looking cars. I'm glad that I was able to save this one.
  11. Thanks guys. I almost tossed this car out, but, because I built it way back in the early 60's, I wanted to see if I could do something with it and keep it. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
  12. Thanks Trevor, I've always liked the 61 Starliner. I thought that it is a real good looking car.
  13. I'm trying to convert a Galaxie to a Starliner. I'm using all the parts needed from a 60 Starliner to build it. Here are some pics of what I've done so far. I forgot to take a pic of the Galaxies roof before I removed it but you can see the difference in how it looks. I've also opened the hood for the engine. I mixed Silver Blue with Safire Blue for the color.
  14. I like it. Nice job on building this kit. You're right about it being a good kit. I built one as a replica of one that I drove while stationed on Okinawa in 67 to 70. Mine was a 63 but they look the same. I also converted mine to left hand drive cause before Okinawa reverted back to Japan they drove on the right side of the road like us.
