    Since I was a little kid and my dad and I watched American graffiti I've always dreamed of having a 32 5 window. Well yesterday my dream came true. The car is an original steel body chopped and channeled. Some work is in store for me to get it where I want it . Needs glass, windshield frame, interior, wiring, etc. but I'm stoked and on cloud nine.

  3. Oh yeah, that'll rattle the neighbors windows. I really like the color.

    That'll get you enough tickets to wall paper the shitter

    btw - the phrase "what seems to be the problem officer" while laughing or wearing a big dumb grin is not as effective as you would think

    I like it, I'd like it even more without the whitewalls.
    Black walled tires always make a hot rod look meaner.

    White walls are for cream puff custom cruisers and restorations. :)
  14. Looks great! I'm jealous.:)
  15. Bitchin! I'd be floating too! I was happy as a pig in shit just finding a turd like this <<<<<<

    Congratulations. I agree on the color being killer. So what's the backstory? Unfinished project that someone else lost steam on or ???? Let's hear the details:D whitewalls look good but blackwalls would be awesome. But who cares what I think. Enjoy.
  22. Wow!:cool: Nice 32. My first 32 was a chopped and channeled five window. Good luck and get that sucker on the road.

    So the backstory of the car is that it was built a few years ago. The owner at that time had a an accident at work. During that industrial accident car got slightly damaged. Not wanting to repair it sold it to the fellow I bought it from. He started to repair but lost steam. I happened to be at the right place at the right time. My initial plan for the car is to first get a grill shell and get it mocked up and ready for paint. Then I'm gonna disassemble and send frame, nine inch and a few other items out for powder coat. When body off I'm gonna put new floors in it and spray lizard skin sound deadener/heat insulator inside. Once chassis is ready start rewiring car and redo brakes etc. like I said I need to get windshield frame and glass too. So, I got my work cut out for me but in the end it will b worth it and done right (the way I like it and want it) ;)

    Yes it does have 3 pedals!!! :) currently it has a 283 with 3 deuces and a munci in it. I'm currently building a 355. For surely gonna keep 3 deuces. The whitewalls r brand new so will prob keep them until I need new tires. Then at that time decide if I'm gonna stick with the whites or switch it up
