Beauty, one down two to go? Can't wait to see it at the next show/get together.
I'm digging the shifter arm with the dimples on it, very cool!
Side note please do start a new thread when you start in on Freddy, I wanted to buy that car but alas funds were just not there at this time. I'm glad he's staying in the family and I look forward to seeing his progress as well.

The wagon will be a week at most (with the amount of time I have in a week to work on it). It's way faster to remove stuff than to put it in. Plans are to bring it back closer to full stock, within reason, and then the next owner can personalize it to their liking. And that'll also get the price down to where it will be very affordable.

After a couple admonishments to create a new thread for Freddy, though I may maintain the name as tribute to its past, I'll start a new one when I get into it.

What a difference!

I knew going to a 5-speed would make a difference, but this was over-the-top different. Still has a few kinks to work out, which I'll do eventually, but for now I'm onto the wagon as of today.

Here it is outside Gene's place today sporting a real '63 grille instead of the '62 grille it had. I went over and helped him for a bit today on his and went for a spin.

That's awesome Roger! It's nice to see it back on the road again.
That was quite a change going from an auto to the 5 speed so I'll bet it's quite the experiance to drive it again, plus the bonus of it being a huge improvement.
Congrats! Can't wait to see it in person.

Roger told me I was the first passenger with the 5-speed.
I can verify.... it's a BIG improvement over the C-4.
But I admit that I'm a big fan of manual trannys.

Just bringing this thread up to the top for the sake of Terence (who recently introduced us to his Ranchero).

As some of you know my Ranchero has developed an engine knock that may be related to the metal pollution the engine suffered when the pushrod disaster occurred a while back. Not sure if it is related or not, but not gonna put too many miles on it until I can get to the place where I can devote time to it. I'm trying to get ready to move to my southern estate so I can sell the northern one, and that's being hampered by how long it is taking to get a big garage built in South King County. At this rate I may be moving stuff into storage and hiring an estate sale outfit just to allow the house selling part of it all. Anyway, until this mess of being spread out over 30 miles gets fixed... the Ranchero will be "resting."
