    I been working on this gal for a while. I bought her off a fellow hamber. Which he had built a great drive train. 350/350 combo , mustang 2 front end, ford 9". Bagged all 4 corners. Installed a new steering column, mini c notch. Tons of body work, had her sprayed gloss black. Pete Finland ( Hotdog kustoms ) doing his amazing flame work head to toe.

    My Wife loves your car. Brings back good memories about here father.
    He had a 53 Buick in Ohio when she was a little girl. She said the floor boards had big holes in them and she watched the road go by when she would go the store.

    Always considered these as great custom material. One of my friends had a '53 Buick back in the mid-60's that we put quite a few miles on. His was basically stock, but almost scraping the ground. Yours is really lookin' fine. Good job ...
    Oh yeah ... Pete's (Hot Dog) last name is spelled "Finlan", not Finland. :)
