Selling my Hardtop.
Price is firm at $39950 AUD which works out to be roughly $29500 US.
The car has been chopped about 3.5" .
I understand some might not be HAMB friendly and they're certainly not my cup of tea but I just like to get them all together, I wish I'd had this...
Wish I had read this before the invitational! Damn ha!
Well there you go! Haha
You happen to be in QLD man? Apparently there are a couple of hardtops around here now.
I can't believe no one has mentioned the Lopez, Matranga, Marcia Campbell or Larry Ernst cars.
No idea about those fenders. Looks weird. Here's some more. [ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH]

Car's looking great man! If you're really in need of a job you'll get one up here! We're looking for someone like yourself, and we just got a...

This is really great. We'll have to catch up for a chat one day when we're both in Brisbane. It's hard to find traditional custom guys around here.
Finally got a chance to do something I've wanted to do for a long time. The oxy was playing up though, need to get me a TIG. Need to do something...
Thanks Keith! It means a lot coming from you, hopefully one day it might be comparible to the Ernst Chevys.

I want to learn about these cars just as much as you atomickustom, so please, hijack away!!
I'd do anything to be around when these cars were...
Holy crap. Looks like the only thing left of that car is the bootlid and doors. Cool as!
Please keep posting. I've been wanting to build a 28/9 roadster myself, though mine would be alot uglier due to mostly using hand tools.
Man this is making me keen to start on my Plymouth ute.
