    Just curious, did you have any of those chromed suspension components heat treated for hydrogen embrittlement? Down here a lot of that chrome will disqualify car for licensing without pre-requiste heat treatment (Certificate required). Failure can be sudden and have catastrophic results, however in saying that there are many old cars on the road with chromed suspension components that have been on the road for many years without issue. I had to have my components baked like a cake and have them certified as safe {For use}.

    Looks like a beautiful project. I'd like to see it done on my next trip to Italy. Maybe next summer.
    Does your dad own a chrome shop?? :)

    Well, engine is ok, the down side and firewall of boby are paint. Fuel and brake line are ok. Now made the exaust manifolds home made and start the final body restyling. After paint and chrome.
    But have a question for the transmission, please help me.
    Engine is 1960 caddy 390, transmission is a 1961 Jetaway 32 spline. Now my original yoke (1949) is different. Can help me find correct yoke 32 spline for Jetaway transmission? There are many i don’t know the correct part. Thanks for help

    Denny's has this 1310 series as well as Inland Empire, Dana Spicer, JEGS, Summit and others that also have 32 spline slip yokes; suits TH400, Muncie, T10, Doug Nash and Jerico.

    Here's a few on that website
