I wanna get one like this for my son's car Pat. Might look good in that old Olds
Not sure if it would bolt up though
I'm a steering wheel guy
Love to change them around.
Yeah Joe that is a sweet looking Steering Wheel! It looks like a VW Steering Wheel.
Looking great, Pat! That interior is gorgeous, looks like a great place to spend 1 or 1,000 miles I've got the same Forever Sharp wheel in the Mach 1 in black leather. I love it.
Thanks Lucas! Yeah I love the Forever Sharp Steering Wheels as well, this is my 3rd one.
Looks like a JFK-era FBI vehicle. Think I saw one in the film: Mississippi Burning.
Finished up the Trunk Area last night. Got the NOS Tail Light Assemblies & Lenses installed and Redone the F-85 Emblem as well. Will be starting on the Engine Compartment over the next few days. More Info. & Pictures to follow...
Looks great Pat what a sweet looking ride. Have a good day
Thanks Joe! You have a good day as well my friend!
Pat, you should post before photos too, so we can see what a mess you started with.
Looking forward to the engine compartment now. Yesterday I spent way too long looking at the classic Olds site on a 62 Jetfire resto thread. I'm going into a deep 215 AL block rabbit hole!
Dad took one out of a 63 F 85 = 43 years ago, I have the engine still. Yours is amazing, that pot metal on the tail is stunning.(along with interior, grill...)
Thanks Ted! I will post Pictures of the Engine Compartment as I go...
