Aw man thanks guys-that's the shit!!!
I took these pics at Pomona Swap Meet a couple years ago.. The 56 t/lites really stood out!
Here's my junk Im working on...
What's the suspension specs on this one.. Love the stance
holloweennight that sooooooooo not junk-freakin kool!
Thank you sir!
Thanks holloweennight96! I love the colour of your '51 .
I lowered mine the old-fashioned way. When I got the car it had new springs and rode much higher than yours sits (think all-wheel drive ). I took about a coil and a quarter out of the front (1/2 at a time so's not to over do it), and put 3" blocks in the rear with the snubbers cut in half. There are also two sand bags in the trunk . Won't bottom out unless there are a couple of my larger buddies in the back seat. I think the lakers help visually lower it too.
Not an ugly duckling in this whole thread guys! Geez, what good looking cars!
A nice car when I got it - and after an "altitude" adjustment:
Any more info on this one? Very cool!!!
Looks bad ass Dave... Mine also has 3" blocks in the rear, and 1.5 coils out in the front. Still seems so much higher than yours for some reason. Maybe because of the lakes..? I am running 14" wheels on mine, and yours look like 15". Anyway.. great looking car man!
heres my baby these cars look cool custom or stock
I wasn't going to post, but since you put it that way!
As I purchased it. (Hopefully, it won't be stock for long.)
Especially when they're lowered .....
And even better looking when they have less visability .....
this one followed me home last week
Our '51 more door...
I hear ya man the Fleetlines are somethin special
FYI - Your car isn't a Fleetline, it's a Styleline.
Got a 51 fleetline 2 door for sale in sunny Arizona, if anyone is interested
I was kinda hoping that by the time i got to the end of the thread, you had purchased one. They sure look so right, when done well.
