Probably a good thing, since the geometry would be so wrong as to be seriously dangerous. Steering is not something to Goober engineer! He could have put in the Toyota steering conversion on a 59 tho.

That's very sad, I feel bad for the guy. If it weren't for the guys here on FTE, my truck may have ended up like that.

Branded is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.Branded is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Hear of this a lot where a person buys a car sight unseen. I couldn't imagine buying with out laying my eyes on it. I,d rather make a wasted trip, be it driving or flying. The cost of the trip would out weigh the cost to repair a rusted heap not worth restoring. But it happens every day, I just don't get it.

His second mistake was not admitting he got screwed, and dumping good money after bad. Sometimes it's cheaper to quit while you're ahead.

Obviously not a mechanic either!
Some have more money than sense. 28K could have bought a really nice 59 Galaxie.
