I was going too cut up a Cobra Jet decal and add the Cobra Jet to this ..... :nono: But I did not want to be shamed too take it off !!!!! Or too be told that there is no such thing, at the cruise-ins ! it was a brain storm I had , while looking at a my screen saver on my phone (picture of my old engine bay) !
LOOKS SWEET ......YES ???? :beer:

This here is my current project ... the wheels ... I Want Mags 400 rims ($900) & another ($900) for tires (15") . $1,800.00 is not in our budget now!!!! Car has 14" tires and are very good ! SO ... I thought on conversion adapters 4 to 5 lug .... as in the rims,tire,brake forum already got an answer on that front not an option way to far out ! I have had these mags for 14 years collecting dust , I just got lug nuts and washers today . Considering powder coating them ? $ 60.00 for nuts and washers $ 260.00 for powder coating 4 wheels What Ya Think ??????

I also like those Troque Thrusts (big faveriotes of mine) you were considering and the 15's sure look good on the 1960's and 70's Fords, But a set of new wheels and tires can get real pricey too. Those 14 inch wheels look to be in really good shape so that they could be polished or powder coated and since you already have a good set of tires that's going to work out excellent on the Falcon. This is hands down a great option, you have. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:
