    Anyway you can post larger photos? These are interesting but waaaay too small to view.

    halfcocked, ya might try going to PHOTOBUCKET, set up account, download pics from your puter to the site, then you can post different sizes on here. way easy once ya have done it a few times. oh ya if ya click on the enter buttion after each post you will stack them enstead of being beside each outher, lots easer to view that way, hope this helps, later little d

    Yeah, it worked...looks good for a 4-door. What are your plans for a "mild customization"?

    Is the trans and rear end still good? From the looks of that front seat, the black and silver would make a good combo. With a new engine up date, it'll make a hell of a sleeper. Good score...

    that interior is extra cool. I like whitewalls and hubcaps... like a 58 vette hubcap would be cool. so you got whitewalls that say custom and vette caps that say HOT ROD

    Nice looking "sleeper". Proof that people rodded 4 doors before the 2 doors became scarce. Cool find.
     
  25. A good side or 3/4 shot without anything or anyone in the way would help.
    Nice find though, and it's always nice to be able to get your money back in parts!

    All that and 4 doors too!
    A sleeper with plain steel wheels and dogdish hubcaps.
    A yes-it-is-a-hot-rod with five-spokes.

    Great find, enjoy it forever.
