Nice car Meric and it looks like the Caddy hood ornament belongs there too. Always thought that hood ornament was one of the best looking ever....you can toss the RR spirit d'ecstasy in the bin as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks Graeme, Yes I too think the Caddy hood ornament is in keeping given the drive train. I will keep a look out for the correct one just in case I change my mind though.

One thing that needs to be replaced ASAP is the dash. It has been customized with a very unattractive flat milled panel with modern gauges and an AF/FM stereo. Seriously not in keeping with the rest of the car, so now I'm shopping for a Lincoln dashboard or parts thereof. I presume they are the same as the Lincoln sedan? If anybody out there in Ford Barn Land can advise if they are the same, I would appreciate confirmation of this.

Thanks in advance B)
