100% beautiful work, A+.
Love the Vicky .
Looks superb. More pictures please.
Sorry, I just noticed this post. No, I don't have a paint code or even a name for the dash color. It was picked out of a generic paint color book, so it was something like "Brown #5".
My '51 4 door on its maiden voyage with the new drive-train- '68 302, AOD, '91 Ranger rear end. Aerostar springs in front, 3" blocks in back. A work in progress- her nickname(for now) is the Ugly Duckling

When you are moving your car make sure the rope is tied on better than this.
Good thing the burn pile was there. It would have been a hard landing.
Next stop was the pond. Very little damage to the lip under the trunk lid.
My 1951 Ford Victoria kustom.
Mine - In progress.
That color is great !
Is it by chance Cayman Green Metallic , a Ford color from about 1991 ?

Is that a Chevy grille? If so, what year? I like that it fits in with the end trim.
My old 49 coupe...350/350 turbo, maverick 8"....cut down Olds coils, flipped spindle supports and rear blocks
HRP has his for sale in the classifieds.... Too much rust....
I swapped my 41 Pontiac for this 50. Had a 350 crate motor/350 turbo and an O/T front suspension. Some guy named Scott from California bought it and painted it black/green flames
First day with my first car....50 Crestliner. Built a 255 Merc for it......April 18th, 1964
I bought this Vicky in the mid 80s. Flathead, 3 twos, 3 speed. I kept it for a few years and set it free.
Wow I love this car of T&A flathead .So similar to how ours was supposed to look . But the shop that did the front end screwed up and got it too wide and we had to off set the rims inwards so we could even turn corners. So sadly we could not run same caps with spinners as you have , that was our plan all along . Think they were 56 lincoln, corrrect me if my memory fails please.
The shop got total of 43 things wrong , then closed up . Otherwise it would be see you in court.
..the only "shoe" I've ever owned, saved it from a slow death under some pine trees...sold it to become a parts car donor....I'd like to get another one someday.
Thanks @Kiwi 4d It photos well
Thanks yes it is a 1954 Chevy grill and I have it tied in to the stock parking light tops.
