    If I'm not mistaken, didn't the PPE body come from a coupe?

    TexasSpeed, do you know who owns the surf green model A you posted?

    I drew a poster using that car for reference, and I'd like to find out more if possible.

    Thanks

    Joe

    Ahh.. The owner is also the owner of California Hot Rods. He's got a couple other rides as well but I don't know his name.

    http://www.californiahotrods.com/

    If you click on "Services," you'll see the same A coupe. Owner's name apparently is Mike Smith? I'd shoot them an email and try to find out.

    That full fendered coupe is just what i was looking for,i think a sbc looks just right and fits the build date i was looking for,dont think its a five inch chop.

    Hey Brent,i have been really busy with 3 kids,just trying to decide what i want,i sold all my hemi stuff because in the last few years a few coupes that look 99% like mine have been builtjust as mine would have,i have been thinking about building it with a period blown sbc,its just a motor that i know and lets face it if your going to drive them hard you should be familier with them,im just having a hard time picturing my car with bias plys and a blower,thats the one thing i wont change is running big and little firestones,i am also considering just selling out and buying a 33-34 coupe that i can run a hood on and hide a little sbc(dont like a hood on a coupes on 32 rails) or just buying a 74-77 ford bronco.
    Any progress on the coupe?
