    I just picked up this car it's a 1962 Chrysler Newport mild custom shaved door handles dual exhaust rebuilt 383 and has been lowered and pinstriped.. picked it up for the mere sum of two German helmets!

    I didn't think it was but I wasn't sure... Does anybody know where I can get replacement decals for the push buttons?

    Cool man. I almost traded my 55 for one very similar last year.

  6. Are German helmets a standard unit of currency in Colorado?

    Lol no I'm a huge military collector ( note my avatar) and the guy I got the car from owns an antique shop and has been looking for a couple german helmets so we struck a deal! ( german helmets are worth about $600 each)

    Congrats ! These cars are almost "custom" from the factory...unusual, kool, great lines, and a killer front clip ! With a few tweaks this will be a perfect ride !

    Man, I sure like this car. Very unique. Almost guaranteed to be the only one at cruise night.

    It does need a little help but nothing major..... Like the front seat needs to be recovered and it has a small exhaust leak and the front and has a little damage but other than that its in good shape
     
  11. Justin,

    Another thing I was thinking of doing a kustomize it a little bit is putting 63 880 tail lights on it.. And getting rid of the round part on the at tail lights and putting in 59 caddy lenses
