It was objectively ugly with that hood. I also regret not really washing it.

242 on Crown Vic mesh wheels (I knew it could be done). Emailed the owner for spacer specs :

25mm front x 30mm rear adapters

Except that he ruined the quarter panels trying to roll them out far enough for spacers that big. :roll:

You can see the crease shadow that happens when you try to push the bottom leading edge of the quarter panel out too far. :-(

No idea. Just found it while searching fender flare options for 240s

t8fanning 08-07-2017 01:22 PM

^This is the wrong kind of inspiration.

PCH 08-07-2017 01:36 PM

The bumper fit is not all that bad. Or may be in contrast with the flares... It's a work in progress anyway, he needs to have the grill figured out.

Good to know where we're setting the bar these days :-(

Nice 75! 74?

LC4CARL 08-07-2017 10:05 PM

I'm going to buy one of those instrument panels just to put on my desk.

PeaceEngineered 08-08-2017 01:28 AM

^^ this. Just to have sit at zero forever? Why? Donate it to someone who will up it to use? Just sayin.

I hate them. Don't like them one bit as you can't see them through the steering wheel very well. I much prefer the 81+ stock dash. That being said, I still have one sitting on a shelf. :e-shrug:

Råda 08-08-2017 09:04 AM

It's a really nice '75, only year 240 to have that amazing interior.

It's for sale, $17k

Just idle chatter. Take it in the spirit it was intended. I think they're cool and it won't fit in my car. Cheers.
