I like the simplicity of it, but I wonder what that box in the back seat is.
Portable record player.
mother in law ?
That car is a fantastic use of a sedan and I bet it was a hoot to drive. Look at that smile.
Though "Your car is your opportunity to show off what you know and how much you can do—subtly or not. All those years of studying and practicing all come together right here and now on that four-wheeled vehicle. It can be mild. It can be wild. Or it can be somewhere in between." can, in my experience, totally get you into trouble, largely with a thing called scope creep, LOL!
I wonder if he still gets royalties???
Nice use of a MorDoor,,, yes they are traditional,,,
Now off to CL,,, 'What's that dear??? NO??????'
Pretty cool. @Austin kays dig that model! @porknbeaner check out the firewall “recess”
Well I like it. With the hood on especially in the time period it was built its a wolf on sheep's clothing. A snappy little Sunday go to Church car. Beautiful.
Looks like the distributor is behind the fire wall. I wonder if the shiny firewall isn’t the real firewall but just a cover that comes off easy so you don’t see a cave of a set back firewall?
Well the best pic we got makes it look like the visible firewall is just a cover. I know what I would do were it me but well my ideas for solutions usually fall into the "What did he do that for category?"
Nice family cruiser
Getting into it to drive must have been a bit tricky, with that nearly vertical steering column right next to the seat. But back then prolly the best steering solution when cramming an SBC into a T engine bay.
Tight little package, the under car shot shows a lot of things in a little space. Bet it was a Blast!
There were no guide lines. Nobody saying you can't put a chevy in a Ford, or you can't run slicks on the street. People weren't afraid to express themselves. Great times.
This car was also featured in the May 1963 issue of Rod & Custom. I got this issue when I was 10 years old and loved everything in it. Maybe that's why I always thought 4-door Ts were so cool!
