    I'd leave the top as-is I think. Love the rest of your build plan. Mine's cut 3.5" . 34front3_4ths2016.jpg

  2. I've been screwing around with the car and collecting more parts. I got a really bitchin set of early Headman Headers for it, as well as an original corvette steering wheel I nabbed on eBay for cheap.

    I also decided to see what a 15" tire with these neat old chrome "Moon" caps would look like

    Side note, these caps have a star design etched into them. Does anyone recognize who made these? They look too precise to be done at home.

  9. That's great, that is exactly what I am shooting for. That steering wheel evidently came out of a 58 Corvette.

    K, the 4 speed's great and all, but what's the story on those headers in the background?? Hmmmm?
     
  12. Those are a pair of drag master "U-fab" headers and collectors I picked up. The guy had them on a Model A coupe with an Olds in it in the 60's. I sold them to a NW hot rod legend Russ Meeks, for the restoration of his Nomad. He had the exact collector and collector covers (I guess there was 3 different covers offered) on his Nomad in the 60's and they are long gone. So I delivered them to him at the swap

    Wow, cool. The Russ Meeks connection might even be cooler than the headers themselves

  14. Out in the garage screwing around, mocked a couple 15” spare tires/wheels I have on the car with a set of Olds Fiesta caps I just picked up.

    Still looking for any information on this car

  15. Well, not a lot of interest in this thread. But I’ll post some occasional stuff until I start actually working on it and I’ll probably start a build thread.

    I bought a nice original grill from @MARSHALL LABOW, the grill that came with the car had the upper portion cut off and the grill rechromed. I also bought a really nice tach drive mallory from @hotrodyankee. The parts keep piling up....

    It deserves a 409, BUT if your heart is set on a high winding SBC I have the makings in the classifieds!
