Very nice body lines. That restored one is beautiful.


Why change from a 4-door to a 2-door? Hinders access to the back seat.

Who cares about access if a car looks cool?
Form before function wins when it comes to old cars, well for me it does anyways.

Marcus,

Picture #4 God how did you do that???
Kneeling down it the rocks like that...

My knees still hurt from looking at the picture.


Ok seriously very nice find. Looks to have some very good bones to start work on.
I like the restored version. Very nice lines.
Looking forward to following your progress as you do what you do.
Cheers.

I wondered about my knees too when I saw the photo, but don't remember anything about it at the time.

Slitted and pressed into open backed bars, just like they did on the truck all those years later.

Just showing Lisa what it would look like just wide enough to fit in the HEMI into the engine bay and get the interior room we need.

Stock

5" wide body.
The look she wants is an imposing gangster look and I think it actually has it more now?
