What rear end are you running in it?
Outrageous. In a good way. Lots of tasty stuff on that car. And yes, the deck lid does kill. Congrats.
VERY Nice Man, if my ''A'' was gonna turn out like your's I would have kept it!The stance, the motor, the paint and trim all add up to one of the nicest '28/'29's I've ever seen.
It's a 9" out of a 57 Ranchero.
Thank you all for the nice things you've said. Here are some updated pics to show y'all where it's at. Last two pics include Eric Anderson's awesome T and Brian Auderers Sweet Lil Jewel.
I remember watching your build and thinking, yeah, this is pretty cool.
But now that it is a finished car in the Austin crowd, it is so bad ass!!!
Those look like some great pics, maybe magazine quality.
Love your Coupe, it came out perfect.
I have been waiting to see more pics of your ride.I think your car is probably in my top 5!!

What a clean and realized build! It's killer!
Car looked great in person at the Round Up, Paul. Great job, man!
looks nice Paul... good job!
Love the hubcaps. What are they?
What a awesome Coupe !
This car just turned out so perfect. I love it! Nice job.
Thank you guys. It has been a crazy road. I ended up moving to Dallas recently which has worked out amazing, though I miss all my Austin peeps!

KILLER Man, just killer, as I've said before one of the nicest ''A''s I've ever seen.
So clean! Love it man!
Love it. Nicely done. Gary
so your running a 57 ranchero 9" which should measure in at 57.25" wide... did you have to run wheel spacers to get the tyres to clear the body?
Yes, with stock wheels. I was going to run reversed rears which may have worked but didn't work for my wheelcovers. Spacers it was. I upholstered the face of them so they fit the theme.
Since having my daughter, I don't get to take him out as much. Did visit the THEM! Invasion in September and they were nice enough to give me Best Engine, which was such a rad trophy. Thanks Guys!

Bring it to Pistons and Paint
what width wheel spacers did you use mate? im trying to work out what width rear end to use in my 30 coupe. i have a 58" wide diff out of a granada, will be swapping it for a 58" bronco diff to get the larger stud pattern. 16x4.5 wheels with 16-7.00 tyres. hoping i wont need spacers. only problem is the wheels are on order so i cant mock anything up yet
how mcu space do you have from tyre to the body?
Pretty sure I used 1.25" spacers. I have about a 1" clearance from tire to body. Tires are 750-16.
Outstanding automobile sir!
