Mock up of Cadillac bumper and Packard tails by Garland's Sacramento.
Do you mind sharing the contact info for your local hinge specialist?
Had a 58 Edsel wagon (57 Ford from the firewall back) with the same A pillar set up and used to bang my knees on them all the time!
That thing is really really nice.
And that dash is about as space age atomic jetsons cool as they come.

I think everyone was imagining much wider whites than that...
Those look cool.
Beautiful car. Any shots of the interior and dash?
