I found the instr cluster last night for this old comet,,no wonder everything was in such good shape,,it didn't have but 41,535 miles showing on the speed-o,,,and I've never seen an old car that was under-coated as much and as good as this one ........thanks POP

Imo, tail lights, 460 done! Nobody makes'em pretty anymore, do they?
Honest, leave the body, make the engine bay, undercarriage and racecar interior cool, done.

I agree with Fred, it tells a story as it looks now
