    Wonder what was used on those door panels for the chrome strip... looks larger than original.

    My guess is less than 6K. Did you notice the huge gaps between the fenders and doors???

    I noticed that too. My chrome ( well, what used to be chrome ) is way thinner than that, but my car is a 74 so that could have changed. :)

    As long as we are picking on it ................... :rolleyes:

    Why oh why, would the seller have not thrown a $65 dash cap on that dried out, cracked up pad?

    :huh:

    I noticed after you pointed it out Ray!lol Could those be fiberglass fenders that don't fit so well??


    But there IS a control on the inside of the door for the nonexistent mirror. Maybe it's an invisible mirror...

    3200 dollars max, based on what you can see. 12k... who knows fools and their money and what not. :bouncy:

    Yes, small money. It is nothing fancy compared to MANY of the cars we have on here (not counting mine, of course, mine is crap looking compared to that!).

    Still a nice looking car, but not a big-bucks car.

    Looks like a pretty cheap paint job, who knows whats hiding under it..atleast put a mirror on the passenger door, and take the covers for the bench seat off the middle seat belts.

    That was the first thing I noticed, since my father is a bodyman that kind of stuff sticks out and shows the quality of work.

    I dont know so I have to ask.. Are those front seats in the wrong spot? The reason I ask that is I see the chrome lever to tilt the seats forward on the inside of the seats, now I know on the LDO seats its on the outside so its easy to get too...
    Anyways I figured I had to ask after all it was the 70s and they did some weird things back then.. Afros.. bellbottoms.. but then again they didnt have Donks:hmmm:

    The mav is gone but i'm still here!
    The ones in my car look the same size, I actually ended up with some chrome strips off some other Ford, never knew what car they fit but I have like 20 feet of it. It was in a NOS box, but I since lost it so I cant look up the number.


    Maybe he just doesn't know that they make them? :huh:

    I know I didn't know there were many pats available until I joined this forum (y)

    Chrome strip looks factory to me.


    Yes....lack of any lower rear quarter extensions as well.


    Looks like they have the front seats on the wrong side. Need to switch them back. Probably got goofed up when the new carpet was put in.

    Just at a glance that car looks like it was painted and put together pretty quick. Likely just to move it fast.
