    Not quite, that was for it's previous look. As you might have experienced with your own builds, Kustoms are an ever evolving matter and changes occur constantly... Glad you like it tho... Keep it humble and keep it kustom...

    The front and back are dropped by airbags. I have no photos to show the front end set up. Soon there will also be dropped spindles in the front which will add another 2 - 2 1/2 inches of drop on the front, along with disc brakes.

    Looks like an almost factory roof height, ala the 2" lower '55 Crown Vic/Sunliner roof. Love it, man! Subbed.

    It's said that "the devil lies in the details..."... Sometimes a small detail makes all the difference in the world. In this case 3/4" make "Sunsation" go from looking good, to "DAMN, THAT'S BADASS!!!"... KUSTOMSVILLE is approaching with every day that passes... KEEP IT HUMBLE, KEEP IT KUSTOM! HFFH

    And the road to Kustomsville continues and the creativity does not stop... Possibly playing with a 59 Chrysler rear window instead and add more "Kustom" touches... Creativity is a neverending process in Jeff Spence's mind at Kustoms by Spence (chop and metalwork being done at Kustoms by Spence in Willits, Ca)... HFFH

    The original pics looked soooooo cool, and now you've gone and chopped it, it is heading towards sub-zero.
    The 56 / 57 Lincoln Premiers have been under-loved or underappreciated for a long time - yours will change that for sure.
    Love it - can't wait to see the finished article (well, the next phase in your custom's continual development anyway)
    Cheers

    Kustomsville is getting closer and closer... "Sunsation's" heart and soul are almost ready to rock n roll... In a week's time or so "The Master" at Silveira's Speed Shop will have the 368 Y Block reassembled, complete and balanced ready to help get to the road to HOODSVILLE. In the meantime, learning and getting a chance to preserve some of this awesome history is much appreciated when given the opportunity to try something new, like working on my own block... Additionally, the mastermind behind the chop, bodywork and paint, Jeff Spence at Kustoms by Spence, is busy working the idea of the 59 Chrysler rear window and massaging it into place.. KEEP IT HUMBLE, KEEP IT KUSTOM...HFFH

    Are you going to make it in time for Santa Maria? I'm really looking forward to seeing it in person.

    Well the home stretch to Kustomsville is around the bend for "SUNSATION"... Most of the roof is done, the engine is getting ready for assembly and the transmission arrived. New and improved brakes have been added, dropped spindles installed and by this weekend the plan is to get the whole package back together and fire up the engine... Praying for it anyway... The best part of today's post is the long awaited SIDE SHOT!!! Great work by both Jeff Spence at Kustoms by Spend and Greg Silveira at Silveira's Machine Shop... Keep it humble, keep it kustom!!! HFFH
