A Little Dash of this….A Little Dash of that.

I had the need to dismantle something this weekend, so I decided to tackle pulling parts off of the ’58 Parts car.  I removed the rear tail light extensions and chrome backing plates.  They are in decent shape, and I will be selling them on Ebay to help fund the wagon restoration.

I also removed the Full Dashboard as one assembly. I will be using it in the Wagon. It is in very nice shape. In fact, it is one of the cleanest and best preserved original dash assemblies I have seen.

The parts car had the optional Town & Country Signal seeking Radio.

The next item I will be removing from the parts car will be the complete front clip. It is very nice, and I will be using it for the wagon.  The whole car is relatively rust free. It is a shame it is a four door, because its worth is only in its parts that interchange with 2 doors and convertibles.

    Hey there. Been following This blog since day 1! Great Blog. Always excited when you post news about your ranchwagon. I have a 2door myself…almost done! When are you selling the taillight chrome? I could use a drivers side replacement on mine.

    Thanks for following the blog!

    As for the tail light chrome, it will only work on all the Fairlanes except the Wagon. If you don’t have a wagon, than they will work out for you.

    I will be putting the trims on Ebay in a few days. Along with other Ford parts I have.

    Don’t forget to check the kickpanel holders (don’t know the proper name) to see if they’re good. Those are usually rusted out at the bottom, and very hard to find since they’re usually overlooked.
