I was going to guess modified but thought, from the vintage of the photo (or what I guessed it to be) that the body was wider and boxier (rather than an old coupe body) - - so it threw me.

Ooooooooooooooooooooo...I used to have me some of those. On the XLT,

I like the Hones, but I kinda wouldn't mind having my Saints back. I sold them to someone 'round these boards actually.
