Hello Everyone, other than putting batteries in a flashlight my electric background stinks. I have a 12v 45rpm record player I want to mount to the bottom of the dash above the transmission hump. I can do that . The speakers are not an issue since the player sends out a signal on 1600 am. I can attach the ground wire to the dash. The power wire is to be hooked to the postive side of the fuse box. It has a 5amp fuse on it. I figure I could stick the wire with connector into a clip holding a fuse like for the radio. What I don't know how to do safely is check the box for the postive side. I would appreciate any assistence..but  explain it to me like I'm 4 years old..and as if your looking at it while laying on your back looking up at the box so you can read the writing on it...Thanks again Tom

All the fuses are going to be hot, or positive.   Look on the side of the fuse box for a terminal, where you could plug in the hot wire to the record player.  There should be 2 terminals where you could plug in an accessory.

Steering wheel

 Just noticed what looks like a very nice steering wheel on EBAY: two tone green. I have absolutely no  connection or interest in it. If somebody needs it, the price is a fraction of repair cost. Just putting this out there.

Upper Grill Extension pieces.

Posted by Russell DeBarros on January 16, 2017 at 9:00am 0 Comments

Hi all,

It looks to me like one of the upper grill extension pieces on my 63 was replaced along the way. Notice how the one on the left has a curved edge, and the one on the right is straight. Can someone take a look at theirs and tell me what it is supposed to be? Is this a difference between a 63…


How is the Chrome strip on the front of the hood attached?

Posted by Russell DeBarros on January 7, 2017 at 5:53pm 3 Comments

Can someone tell me how the chrome strip that is on the underside of the front of the hood is attached? This is a V shaped strip that attaches to the 2+ inch extension on the underside of the hood. Is it nut and bolt, Screw and retaining clip, bolt and captive nut? Something else? I am guessing that it will be the same for all 63's and 64's , but if it matters I have a 63 sedan.
