Thank you Matt for this great information.  I am finally in a position to spend some money on my cars and the Galaxie is now in a private shop to get started on it.  I really appreciate the help I get from people like you in the clubs and hope I can pass on the help I have received.

Thanks again

Thanks Tom, for the information and link, there is indeed a lot of great info on this site.  I am having my '83 XL convertible restored and it has a lot of optional equipment on it and I want to make sure they are all factory options.  I really appreciate the help from everyone that responded.
