Re: Order of reconstruction

Don't know what you have in place for bracing, but I would gut the interior completely, and brace the crap out of it. I would also have a good quality export brace in place like the ones' Don sells that are premium reproductions making sure the shock towers stay put. I'm no expert, but after you get...

Re: 73 XR7 Convertible value

Has it always been a Wisconsin car? Hopefully it never saw a winter. At $3k + engine +trans+ leather int + paint you are gasping for air. The Hayes boys in NY a few months ago had a beautiful 73 XR7 vert for $12K and they would deliver it. Check Hemmings. Not sure if it has or not. Seller does claim...

Wrinkle paint on seat belt buckle

Needing to repaint one of my buckle covers on my 67 deluxe seat belts. How does one get the wrinkle finish on that paint? Also if anyone knows the correct dark green to use, it's almost black.

Re: Pearson Motor Co Inc Picayune MS

Just an update, been emailing back and fourth with the granddaughter to the original owner of Pearsons, now Herring Ford. She is going to get me some info. Sounds like there might even be some paperwork left somewhere that she can possibly get her hands on as her father played a huge management part...

Re: Pearson Motor Co Inc Picayune MS

Don, I think what happened is they heard I was born, built the car :) Tomcat, cool info you got there. I will have to look up when that show is, and consider it. Would have to find back roads to get there to stay off the 'hwy 41 raceway' :) The guy helping me even went so far as to say that if I or ...

Re: Pearson Motor Co Inc Picayune MS

So I reached out to the current Ford dealer in Picayune, and got a call back a bit ago. The gentleman that called me; his grandfather bought Pearsons back in 1978, and it is now Herring Ford. He is going to get me some contact info for someone who can possibly get me some more history, and also get ...

Re: Pearson Motor Co Inc Picayune MS

Thanks Tomcat. That's right. I'm old enough that I should have known that they were not decals back then.
I'll explore that avenue as well. You ever get down my way we should connect. Close to Beaver Dam. I get to Pulaski once a year for service work for one of my customers.

Pearson Motor Co Inc Picayune MS

To all who can help, So I got a Marti Report for my car for Christmas this year. As I suspected, my car isn't super rare in the statistics section. Standard car with the 390 in Lime Frost with Ivy interior. 4-speed, limited slip, courtesy lights, console, A/C, 8-track. I guess what makes it most rar...
