Thanks Joe for the compliments!
Your baby wants to come back home to Texas.
I started working on my rag of a wagon with my boy yesterday . I will start a thread on it elsewhere later today.
How about a dual master cylinder for this INCREDIBLE wagon?
I love my Morraine Delco.
ABSOLUTELY love everything about your car! Great job... I just bought myself a 62 Impala wagon and hope to make it half as cool as yours. I hope to see this car in person sometime in the near future. NICELY DONE!
Thank you very much! If you need any info, don't hesitate to ask me.
I just found these pics here fellas. These photo were from when I was building the original plans to place a 283 under the hood. These were the Alan Grove brackets I purchased and then added my .2 cents of creativity to them.
Mocked up in raw steel.
After using my drill press in the garage.
After I was satisfied with the outcome, I sent these out the chromers for some "bling" treatment.
I then hit the recessed hole areas with some "one shot" pinstripe paint.
I think this is a great idea to carry over the engine theme into the interior. To my eyes, the pedals look a little too blingy. I'm not always a fan of "patinated" cars, but this one really speaks to me. Maybe because it reminds me so much of the old SWs I rode in as a kid. And those window decals really add the frosting to the cake. You need one more thing, though. Roll a pack of these into the arm of the left sleeve of your T-shirt and hang it out the window the next time you go for a cruise:

Love the Old Gold memorabilia!
ive said it before, and i will say it again: STUNNING
Mr1961: What color is the engine painted?
love the gold on the dash that still original paint right? i know you painted over the patina but this wagon would look killer painted!!!! that gold would just take it over the top!
VHT GOLD FLAKE
That is custom one of a kind mixed color that was made by a good friend who PPG color scanned my original steering wheel and then modified it from there. It is PPG Deltron Concept and I do have the color mix formula and about a pint left. I named it "Old Gold".
I love it. I like your wheels and it looks good, I favored the originals however. Way cool ride and something to be proud and comfortable it. Nice Job!!!! Love the engine.
I am trying to get her home.....
Man, I can't get enough of this wagon. Thanks for the longroof porn.
Great looking ride. I love it.
glad to see you still got it Seth
Thank you and you're welcome!
Thank you, thank you!
What's up stranger! She's still here.
Absolutely love the whole package. Experienced on the outside, Clean and Classy on the inside and the wheels are just a tipoff that there's more here than first meets the eye... (Smile when you say 'Recession Rod' pardner.)
Could you update us on how the clear is holding up?
good to see that, im building a 50 catalina, frame off
