    Done a lot of searching but am coming up empty. Has anyone seen an A coupe with a 36 Olds dash?

    I am collecting parts right now for an Olds powered coupe and this dash caught my eye, minus the myriad of knobs!

    There is a thread for A's with different dashes but I don't remember seeing that dash. I think it would look great. Building another coupe ??
    I'll try to find the link.

    That is a nice dash.
    Would this be another Hilton/Ross project?

    If you have the talent to make it fit (I Do not) go for it, it would forever be a way to make that car your
    own, even if it was later sold.

    That's the plan. Wouldn't go anywhere else, Bob builds the baddest cars out there and Tony is a master on all engines but Olds...well thats his forte.

    Olds power, dash and rear lights. Sedan doors, heavily chopped. That's the thought process so far.

    It could be just a matter of modifying the tank face and setting that facia within. I see it "working with" the opening already there for the the A gauge panel. Stunning idea, love it...

    See above, 4:71 blown Olds power (courtesy of Professor Lombardi at Ross Racing Engines), heavily chopped (5+ inches), sedan doors. Thinking dark/black...

    Low mileage too!! Lol
    This is going to be good - I haven't seen a build they have done that doesn't scream HOT ROD!
     
  14. The "Not so gentlemanly coup"? Good to see you around again. Hope all is well.
