Received this vehicle when wife's mother passed. It was given to our son in the will. He will turn 17 this fall and has learners permit, 6'9" will fit in there, joked about taking the seat out and driving Shaq style. I have the new fuel pump here now and will be installing it soon. Son is as if getting a stubborn mule to the plow with mechanical things. He did fix the push mower pull cord. Top off, had to show him the rope in recoil hat rewind spring trick and reassembly. Put everything back on except air filter on backwards, he did great. Needs to work on hand tool skills and wrench/socket sizing. Vic with be a good 1st car for him. Plenty of power and solid surroundings. Ford's Panther car Platform was a great Engineering idea, not great on fuel economy, it did what it was intended.
