Interesting that in black, looks like top might be chopped an inchish. Though it aint, I like the impression.
Is a beauty:)
In this case with silver wheel covers and wide whites (cool) against black. I am thinking no skirts. Have to see with/without to know for sure. More energetic appearance this way?
Interior looks great, pipes look great.

Hi Drew! She looks beautiful! What really sets off a black Squarebird is the external chrome kit I think. It is like dressing it up in a tuxedo! Something you might think about. As for fender skirts, I like mine on Rose. Here are a couple of pix to look at, including some with the external chrome kit in place. Headlight covers, air scoop, curved tail fin pieces, and "eyebrows" above the tail lights. Finally, a shot of yours without the external chrome package, and the fender skirts, for comparison.

Your car looks beautiful.
I would quickly take the Club off your steering wheel. They simply cut through the steering wheel, cuz it's easy to do, and slide the Club off.

If you want a better anti-theft system, shut off the fuel, not the electric. No gas, no go. Nobody will re-plumb the system while trying to steal your car. - Dave

Good as she looks, there is one trim enhancement I suggest.
Did this same thing to my 60 Tbird.
Have front piece of hood air scoop chrome plated.

My recollection is that factory offered a dress up option of: chrome valve covers + chrome hood scoop.
Others here otta know more about that than I do.

She looks great. I might repaint your aircleaner the correct "off-white" color, the valve covers yellow, & the fan blade/voltage regulator cover back to a semi-gloss black. The power steering cap should be a light agrent gray, as well as, your shift linkages. You could repaint the 2 hood latches this color too?

I would also recommend a decal kit for you Sunray wheel cover spokes. The problem is Birders have had a hard time getting in touch with John Draxler at the T-Bird Ranch these days. These should all have a black inlay- It really makes a visual difference...
