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.

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.

Thumbs up

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...
