    That looks tuff! The 'only' thing I would have done differently, is move the front axle forward about 2"...other than that...KILLER!

  9. Looks good but loose the scoop.
     
  10. i like the car like the scoop love 57's without the front bumper only thing id do is either put taller tires on the front or 15 inch rims (if it has 14's on it) on the front or lower the front a few inches the front wheels on it in the pic look way too small IMHO

    looks cool ...
    but the front tires are too small
     
  19. I like the before version better.

    Building a "gasser" is kind of passe... especially if it's using new parts like the wheels he went with.

    I would have much rather seen a wheel and tire change on the car... and maybe up date the engine compartment with some period pieces than to have a "gasser" that can't back up what it's muscle'n up to do.

    My choice would have been original American 5 spokes... 15x6" all the way around.

    Polish the lips, paint the centers silver or goldish...
    BFGoodrich Silvertown bias plys...

    black tuck and roll... Four speed stick, original Sun tach on the dash.

    Chrome the glove box for the ladies.

    And then some original Vette valve covers... maybe Cal Customs... a C3B4 intake, velocity stack... Mallory dual point with black baklight cap.

    Chrome the generator... Vette rams horns painted white...

    And a couple strategically placed 60's decals (not 70's-80's stickers) on the 1/4 windows and call it done.

    I like it, I build a lot of gassers, and everyone that does not have one has an opinion. good on dad for gettin it done and enjoying it. all of us build em different, thats what hot rods are all about.
