Default RE: A nice 60 for sale

Lots of Squarebirds now have this exterior chrome dress-up kit, including my 1959. It was never a factory or dealer option. The headlight doors and windshield wiper wells have been found in Ford boxes in chrome, but the hood scoop and rear quarter pieces are things the owners chromed on their own. It is thought that these pieces were chromed so that they could match any color car as a repair.

These chrome pieces have been put on these cars for such a long time that even in the VTCI concours rules listed it as an option. The VTCI rules have been revised now based on the evidence. There has never been found any documentation, such as brochures or parts books, that this option was offered.
