Perfect looking car....very flowing.
that just entered my list of fav shoebox fords. great car!
Beautiful job. Looks right on the money.
wow looks good. just finished my coupe not too long ago. 1949 club coupe custom. painted light brown metallic with a gold and root beer metal flake roof. interior is next. yes love the ride on bags too!! great chop didn't do mine your"s looks great!!
that car is bitchin,really nice job............
Another update: I put my 57 Stude trim down the sides today. Kinda breaks it up a little. I'm happy with the results. Got the brakes sorted out completely. I was using a manual pedal assembly with a booster and had the wrong ratio. I had a 6 to 1 and I modified it to 4 to 1 and the brakes are great now. Learn something new everyday.
Sweet looking car. Love the Stude trim, nice and subtle.
That's why I love south Texas. We can go out and cruise in January. 70 degrees!
Looks fantastic!! Very nice work. Makes me want to drag the 50 sitting outside my shop in to start working on it. Looks like the Gambino kit on the rear is the way to go. What did you use for the front suspension?
Thanks, I clipped it with Fatman parts. It rides great.
Amen! That 51 is killer man, I dig the color.
First time to see your post.( Man what a nice car. )Real Quality work there son....
looks so good!!!
damn that car is absofuckinlutley georgeous.
car looks great wish you could bring it to the sit down!
Put a few miles on it last night. It did good. That was a great feeling, all that work really paid off.
Awesome work! Thanks for the updates.
Did you have to modify the tubs at all to get it that low in the rear? Looks like the original but can't quite tell.
that's what i call a piece of work...great job
Thanks everyone. No I didn't change the wheeltubs. Im running 205/75r15 tires and I did have to install bumpstops to clear the tubs all the way down. It's low enough for me.
Awesome work, looks killer!
beautiful chop. it's tough to chop a coupe and have the proportions come out so well....you NAILED it.
Hey Kustom777 you nailed your chop too then you cut it off! Thanks for the great comments!
photos of what you did with the front wheel wells?
Looks awesome man!
Great looking car. Congrats.
