    Thanks. It's an all original steel 30 coupe. 350 chevy motor, turbo 350 tranny, '40 Ford banjo rear-end with open drive line and juice brakes. Still uses the cowl tank. Tilt windshield, roll down rear window, rumble seat. Original style LeBarron-Bonney mohair interior. It has the 1940's style knee-action shocks. 682C headlights with a dropped headlight bar, and working cowl lights with yellow bulbs. Wheels are 1935 Ford with 560 x 16 Firestones on the front, and 750 x 16 on the rear. Straight pipes out the back, but thinking of putting some cheap muffler shop glasspacks on .

    Thanks for the info. Our coupes have very similar paint, I hope to have mine set up like yours when it gets turned into a hotrod.

    Here's a few more of mine I shot last weekend. This thing definitely needs mufflers. I like a loud car, but you can't even talk to the person sitting next to you.

    That's such a cool little machine. I was actually pretty close to buying it. There are some wild youtube videos of him driving through the forest with it.
