    Thanks! And I did! I picked up a pair of windsheild frames. One is a stock-height standard and the other is a two-inch chopped DeLuxe with some old paint on top of the old chrome.

    @J.Ukrop, keep a eye on this one as maybe you may get a chance down the road...if Christian grows tired of it you might get first dibs because only you two like it...:D

  14. FYI ... The current owner's name is Christian ... and he named his coupe "The Bruce Duce" (I'm guessing an "alternate" spelling of the word "Deuce").

  16. What are those taillights on the coupe from? Somehow I'm thinking a '60s Olds F-85 but I could be wrong.

    Those headlight stands are Trans Dapt, I bought a new set in the 60's from Radke Auto Parts in Portland Or.

  21. Fantastic car!
    Just one question: Why weren't you allowed to touch the fenders? Did he fear that you would break them off or cut yourself on the sharp edges?

    Joeys a rugged masculine individual and they probably figured his hulk like demeanor ment his touch would be heavy.

    or not. Who knows lol

    Hahahha @Tim hit the nail on the head. Nah, it was actually because they aren't super secure and there is some cracking happening.
