    That car must have lived inside all it's life. Someone scored when they found it.

    Wow! I know that is quite an understatement, but I don't think I know the right words to express just how unbelievably nice that A is!

    I like preservation of rear window height. Not a "mail slot". So was this 4" chop & nothing taken out of rear window?

    4-5/16 chop with the back window moved downward 3/4 of an inch so 3-5/8 was taken out of the window .
