FULL-SIZE FORD RESTORATION Fords full-size model change from 1959 to 1960 was seen as a big departure from the swerving lines of the 1950s. Slow to start on sales, Fords full-size production grew year after year, peaking with 648,010 units produced in 1963. It was an all-time best for the Galaxie line and its sister nameplates. Eight appearance and performance offerings were applied to the full-size Ford line including the Fairlane, Galaxie, Ranch Wagon, Country Sedan, Country Squire, Courier, 300, and Custom, which made each car unique. With more than 2.3 million full-size Fords produced from 1960 to 1964, a restoration book for these cars has been desperately needed, and here it is! Author Colin Kleer, president of Pennsylvanias Three Rivers chapter of the Galaxie Club puts his decades of experience restoring these cars into this single volume. Featuring step-by-step procedures on body, driveline, chassis, and interior components, Kleer shows, with more than 400 photos and text, how to restore a full-size Ford to its former glory. Crucial projects such as rust repair and driveline maintenance help guarantee that your Ford will be sound and solid for years to come after the restoration. Convertible Top Restoration And Installation Theres an old saying weve all heard before that goes When the top goes down the price goes up. Of all the projects involved with the restoration of your collector car, few seem as challenging or confusing as addressing the convertible top. Due to aging and neglect, the hardware and fabric covering have led to some not-so-nice conditions, making it difficult to find information addressing your specific model. Fred Mattson, author of Automotive Upholstery and Interior Restoration, delivers this compilation on restoring and repairing convertible tops. Step-by-step photo sequencing walks you through convertible top applications for Corvettes, Ford retractable tops, scissors tops, manual tops, and power tops. Fred also addresses the weather seals, well liners, hydraulic/electrical systems, adjustments, materials, and pads. No other book ever produced on convertible tops goes into this much depth of coverage. With this book you will be guided through the convertible top repair/restoration process in an easy-to-read how-to format, so there should be no reason to fear taking your drop top out with the threat of rain. Convertible Top Restoration and Installation will be the one tool that will show you how important a well-sorted top restoration is, not only for practical reasons, such as staying dry, but for cosmetic reasons as well.
