My Husband's Mad Max Interceptor Project

We got an N.O.S. GT grill for my car but learned that the 1966 foglight kit would not work on it. My husband will be fabricating the necessary pieces to make it work though. We also learned that the hood latch mechanism between the GT grill and the standard grill are different so we bought a new appropriate one. In the meantime the regular grill was put back into the car and the foglight kit reinstalled without the light-up horse.


So for a run-down of what was done the first year I owned the car...
  • All New Springs
  • All new shocks, KYB GR-2
  • New Gas Tank
  • New Filler neck
  • New 1967 Gas Cap
  • New Front and Rear Bumpers
  • New Drip Rail Chrome
  • New Grill Surround Chrome
  • New Foglight Kit
  • New Inner and Outer Door Handles and Locks
  • New Trunk Lock
  • New Window Crank Handles
  • New Instrument Bezel, Immitation Woodgrain
  • New Glovebox Door, Immitation Woodgrain
  • New Glovebox
  • New Woodgrain Steering Wheel
  • New Rearview Mirror
  • New Dashpad, Original Ford Tooling
  • New Automatic Gear Selector and Bezel
  • New Hump Hugger Console, Highway Cruiser MOdel
  • New Tail Light Bezels and Gaskets
  • New Front Turn Signals
  • New Back-up Lights
  • Rebuilt 8" Axle with Auburn Posi Differential, 3.25:1 gear
  • 4 New Wheel Cylinders
  • All New Rear Brakes
  • Front Brakes Replaced
  • New Stainless Steel Brakeline from Master Cylinder to Rear Axle
  • New Stainless Steel Brakeline from Axle to Wheel Cylinders
  • New Left Side Mirror, Remote Control
  • New Tires, B.F. Goodrich Excentia GT w/RWL, 215/70R14
  • New Magnum 500 Rims, 14x7

That's a pretty good start.
