The Interior

 

Here is the interior as of December of 1998. This is FAR from what I want it to be. The interior is a collage of different parts, from the Grant steering wheel to the 1964 Falcon door pannels and 1967 Mustang C4 shifter. Before I began to work on the car, it sported '64 Futura dash plastic, a badly cut up dash for installation of a radio, sagging old carpeting, and defroster pieces in need of replacement. The dash out of the parts car is what you see here. Since the radio plate was already cut for a different radio, I modified the piece again to fit a Sony detachable face CD player. The cardboard defroster ducts were replaced with plastic ones, I installed a dash pad, and I built the center console/drink holder (gotta have a drink holder...).

The trunk had a shag green carpet in it when I bought it, and the floor was rusted from water leaking past a deteriorated trunk seal. I used simple automobile nylon carpeting and cleaned, prepped, and painted the entire trunk. After the paint, I used spray on truck bed liner for further protection. The wheel cover conceals a 215/70 R14 spare.

I'm finally getting ready for the redo to end all redos.  A lot of changes are planned, especially for the interior.  Stay tuned!


(And if anyone was wondering, yes, there is something hanging from the rear view mirror. What you ask? Why, a Millennium Falcon, of course!)
