67 long box

I started this build about 2 years ago and lost a year and a half due to car accident but I've been hard at it since march.

I tried to find replacement pieces without success and there aren't any. I could have cut a section out of another cab if I could find one but I couldn't. I made all the pieces from scratch. I took lots of pics during it and I can post some if needed. It was not easy but it can be done.

I'm with you on the wrinkle paint it has an undesirable look to it.

Re: 67 long box

Great progress. What are your build plans?
Keep it original, mild modifications or a full blown trailer queen?

Re: 67 long box

I really like the way that you fabricated the rear sway bar.
You could sell a ton of those.

I hate spending money on parts, this way I know what I'm getting and the quality is up to my standard. Nothing worse that getting parts that are not right. that sway bar was made from chromoly 1" 4140 and 4130 hss 2"x4". I hope it handles well.

Re: 67 long box

Bent the new lip down to stiffen the panel, the repair didn't chew up to much old paint so it should be an easy blend in patina

Doesn't look like it but that was 8 feet of weld. First one done with a coat of primer to prevent rust and start welding again.

This is my father in laws 61 unibody with a complete 1996 mercury grand marquis under it. It had a small chip in the fender, repainted now.
