Possibly, but could also be a misprint, and is actually a '56 365 in. Eldo mtr.
Well, that's a real blast from the past, and to the beat of one of my old favs., "Green Onions".
Who remembers the band and the year it came out?

I applaud your talent and balls of steel; this chop is certainly not for the faint of heart!
Gonna look bitchin'..........
That black still looks wet and deep, like it has 6 coats of clear on it. But I believe you mentioned
it's Single stage?
Wondered if it was the Real Deal, at first glance (dash plaques). Looks like a few well-known racers have passed it on; one couple in particular...

If you really, really promise, I can get it for you tomorrow a.m. You're talking about measuring width-wise?
