    great looking car. love the tuck-n-roll insides. I wouldn't do anything but drive it... OK, maybe drop the back a little , but that's it.

    You do know, Austinrod, that you are torturing us with these photos. That car is righteous!

    1. There was a spray leak from this hose that I need too replace hopefully I can find a replacement or something similar.
    2. plus I need the front brake pedal fixed it seem I use it once and then doesn't work again after that until I put the foot behind the pedal too pull it back and then works again.
    And the carburetor is gummed up and need too be cleaned and regulated.
    3. And maybe switch the car from 6v to 12v.
    4. Plus the tires might need too be replaced

    Not to bash your taste, but the bullet caps and the smoothie type wheels will make the car look lame. Stick old school with some type of full hubcaps and you will get a lot more respect.

    nice looking 55, im running 54 olds caps on mine and look good, maybe check out those or 57 lincoln caps instead of the caddy, the caddy caps might require a deeper rim than what you got.
