    700-16s work great on the rear of a '40.

    The 7.50 off and 6.50 on- looking at this I think the 7.00 will look great! 100_4433.JPG

    Nice!
    I would dress up the SBC to look like it came out of a 59 Impala.
    Old school.

    I like the dash area; I'd be happy to drive that.

    These are Firestone 7.00-16 on my 39 std. Just right I think. They're on rare commercial wide 5s with a 5" rim width. The offset compared to the 3 1/2" wheels is kool. In the top pic, although jacked up, it's loaded. In the bottom pic it was lowered with long shackles and has since been raised to where the top shows. Yes, it's a minor cussing moment to remove them, best to raise from the frame for that. Kool 40, good for you. I'd be tempted to put the 40 lights back on too but you didn't buy it for me;)
