1972 Montego GT 429 – 2015 Updates

Just various pics of my 16 month restoration of a 1972 Mercury Montego 429 which is now a 521.

I now have 600+ miles with no issues.

Fun car to drive.

Would love to find a set of  rear glass louvers.
These would be the same on both the Gran Torino Sport and the Montego GT

Also shown is my restomod 1966 Chevy C-10
