  1. maybe a few summers... judging from the footage provided by Juan Browne of the depleted lakes/reservoirs in that area, it looks like another dry cycle
  2. If said collectors aen't bright enough to carefully look at the pics, well... If the seller is using an original kit for pics, then you've got a case.
  3. Nice work on those details, Bill; the dash pad, headliner and even windshield squirter hoses really add to it but that grill is really the piece de resistance that makes this project a standout We sure appreciate you taking the time to apply your skills and creativity in making these grills and other parts available to us for a while ... now I have to get mine back out on the bench to finish
  4. Great overview Chris. That 'curious retool' of the dual snorkel air cleaner was actually making it into an accurate part for the '83-'85 5.0 4V package. I do believe it's the only one in scale as well since I don't think mpc ever did one for their mustangs. (be happy to be proven wrong though) The '82 GT had one too, but with a smaller center housing for its 2V carburetor... ...Upon closer inspection, it looks as if they've actually tooled the '82 housing instead of the '83-'85 version. Small difference in scale, but you know us rivet counters...
  5. Kinda similar in concept to the paxton airbox on the shelbys...
  6. Possibly units assigned to higher ranks or non-regular street duty had the carpets...
  7. Certainly can't beat that perceptive summary, Mr K Obviously we'll never see the '83 body again, with the mold update to the newer body, but fortunately the massaging needed to backdate the new body is limited to the side moldings and lower regions. With a talented resin caster capable of sculpting the proper slot between the headlights on the '83 fascia to make an '85/'86 front cap and maybe casting the '79-'82 & '83/'84 front ends, along with tail lights etc, we could see the complete line of four-eyed foxes being within reach of interested modelers.
  8. Too true, Tom. Scalemates doesn't have to be a pariah, though. Suppose a few knowledgeable guys gave him some feedback on areas where accuracy is, um, lacking to help make it a better resource. If he's unwise enough to spurn the help, well, he's on his own
  9. At least it makes a great parts source for fans of the dual snorkel carbed 5.0 cars ... more affordable than the original '83 ragtop With a talented resin caster capable of sculpting the proper slot between the headlights on the '83 fascia to make an '85/'86 front cap and maybe casting the '79-'82 & '83/'84 front ends, along with tail lights etc, we could see the complete line of four-eyed foxes being within reach of interested modelers.
  10. Definitely a site with information that is usually to be taken with a very large grain of salt Save the thanks for Steve... I just fluffed it up a bit. The Meteors here ran from '49 -''61 and then from '64 into the '70s.
  11. True, based on the Fairlane body architecture The Canadian Meteor was an entry level Mercury based on the Ford body shell sold at Lincoln-mercury dealers. Ford US took the name back in '62/'63 to apply to the midsize body but sales apparently weren't sufficient so the name was reapplied to the '64 canadian cars. I've got a radio faceplate here for one that fits the '63/'64 Ford radios as well. Good looking project, Tom!
  12. That should read '352' , not 406 Two years ahead of myself here
  13. If you're lucky enough to also have CRS, you're really in trouble
