These are fun, but pain in the ass cars. Their front controls arms are different from a fairlane as well as rear springs.
If you want to change...
Great house, awesome shop & die hard build!!!
The simplicity and high level of craftsmanship truly shows in your shoebox.
Owning a similar car to yours, when you remove the radio. (pull knobs off & remove nuts behind) there will be a hole. It has two tabs that stick...
Thanks for giving me the feeling of being there.
It has only taken 8 years and owning this car twice for me to lower it.
3 inch blocks and 2 coils lopped off the front...
WOW! Amazing craftsmanship.
I dig it. Looks like you'll be learning the better side of the hammer and dolly set soon.
Good luck. Take your time. And ask for help!
I was searching for someone else to conclude my thoughts.
These ebay parts are more than likely from The American Shifter Co. (The Hoffman Group)
It may to too customized for your build, But I really dig this!

I would have to agree with Deto on this.
When I first got in to building/working on traditional styled cars I was the "elvis impersonator".
I have it and hate it!
Do not buy, save up the cash and go with a Hurst Indy.
I've always loved those trucks.
Keep it simple.
Roof of my car. Plain & simple.
Great event coverage!!
You could do it similar to Eli's car.
I think you should paint it a different shade than satin/suede/flat black.
Think of it more as budget built and not "rat rodded".
