    Before you weld in the 3" blocks...make sure you can get the tires berween the drum & fender. Real tight squeeze on my '48 Plym @ normal ride height.

    ------------
    I agree that it's definitely not
    "hot rod" or full-tilt "custom car"
    material ...but it's still very HAMB
    relevant and HAMB friendly. With
    a conservative, solid, single-dark-color
    paint-job, some wide-whites on
    either steelies, or better yet even,
    - on factory-style chrome wires -
    and little bit of lowering, it would
    make for a really sweet and very,
    very classy cruiser. Later, as you
    find them, throw on a few 'period
    correct' vintage accessories - like
    maybe a sun visor and/or some
    rear fender skirts or ???? and it
    could make for a really cool,
    unique and desirable car.

    I know these arent popular for Rat/Hot Rods. But they have great potential for what I call "Gangster Cruiser". Nice paint, tinted windows, redo the interior, upgrade to 12V, MT/AT conversion...and even lower it if you want, and these babies will make you feel like an old Mob Boss. (At least to me it does)

    On nice afternoons here in TN I sometimes just sit in the Windsor with a glass of wine and a cigar. Just to watch the sunset...

    I truly love this car.
     
  23. I lowered mine last weekend using the Aerostar springs. The stance is nice but rides on bump stops and harsh....so this weekend I will cut about 2 coils out of the original springs...amazing how easy the front suspension is to pull apart. They are great cars...unusual at any show....

  27. I love the stance on both of those.

    Sin....did you cut 2 coils in front and 2" blocks in the back?

    Who says these cars can't be cool...
