I think that's the same mount I tried last year. Andrew just put them on his 72.

These guys in EBay seem to have an abundance of chassis rubber mounts for all sorts, but not Torino’s, may pay for someone to make an inquiry and offer measurements etc  ????

Anyone with a set out of the car that can measure em up ?????

If you click on there “other listings” they seem to cover massive amounts for everything else

Beautiful wheels, beautiful car. Yes, no matter what size garage you build, it could always have been bigger. Especially when a person is a packrat like me.

Same wheels but these are 17s instead of the 18s that the movie car used
Im really leaning towards painting the car black with a blue laser stripe

Home sweet home.  I finally have room to work. All I need to do now is finish unpacking the house and the 10 page honey do list and I can start working on the Torino again.

Yes. *EDIT*
#1 on the list:Applying insualtion to the garage walls and installing a rather large air conditioner and a fridge for keeping frosty beverage of choice cold for the long wrenching sessions.

Well that isnt much of an update but I was finaly able to sneak out into the garage for a few minuts and worked on the grill. It had a lot of cracks so I used PVC glue on all the cracks and then scuffed it up with a scotchbright pad. A little satin black paint and attach the grill ornament.

My grill surround was also in pretty bad shape. Only took several hours to put back in shape. I am looking for the alluminum surround trim however, got a few quotes all over $300 to restore mineDead

300 sounds ridiculous for the trim

This guy does all mine. He does great work and is very reasonable. May be a little far for you to ship, but here's his info anyway.
