Needs to be restored and at the GNRS!
Thanks! I feel like I'm 12 years old again! Great car, I remember it well from the Hot Rod feature, yes I still have all the old ones I bought. Look forward to the rebuild and repaint in red.
Cool, I have that issue stashed away somewhere. I'll agree this time around that that car deserves to be restored to the way it was in the magazine. Right now though it just needs to get the van wheels off of it and get the correct wheels on it.
The 40 looks better than ever unfortunately the brunette has probably seen better days by now.........
There really shouldn't be any doubt, that the '40 should be restored to this original '63 styling. Especially when you have it featured, in color no less, in one of the most popular publications of all time.
Awesome to find another one so well preserved, come out of the woodwork!
Now, let's see the rest of the stuff...
I saw it at a Street Rod Nationals. Probably Tulsa or OK City. It was black then.
If that model was 20 when those pictures were taken she's 67 years old now, one year older than me. Wonder if the years have been as kind to her as they have to the car? This last year I met the homecoming queen from my junior year and she is just as hot now (maybe more so) than she was back then. You young guys have got a treat coming in about 30-40 years when you find out that true beauty will stand the rest of time and like fine wine can actually look better now than back then. I saw Sophia Loren on TV the other night and how I wish every women looked that good at 70+ years old.
what tail lights are those in the '40?
Whoa! What a score... Congrats! Awesome ride.
it looked better red with the stance in the mag get rid of those ugly wheels and side pipes
nice car luck sob
Amen to Sophia!! OH, and congrats on the car, I remember seeing pics of it too.
Congrats! Very cool. I dig the Vette tail lights. Not a fan of those wacky canted front headlights though. They were definitely smoking some weird shit back in the day.....
Thats an awsome find Monte. Good to see you are still around. This is Richard (Ricky) that used to run the Super Shops store out there in the mid 90's with Cindy.
Maybe the model can be at the ROUND UP also !
That 40 is COOOOOL!
Should have some more pictures of the 40 and the model a in just a little bit my son is loading them now ..Worked on them today .Both the cars are hard to believe ...they are in such good shape. We are going to put the 40 back just like it was my dad already bought a set of slicks . We are going to put some pictures of some of our other stuff we hope you like them thanks Montie...
