    Thank you.
    I dont wanna brag but its a real killer in reality,from every angle.
    I just love it.
    And that its still got the tuck n roll on the runningbords is pure porn ha ha (took them off when i drove it home on the truck so the wouldent fall off).

    Crashhead here on HAMB helped me with the deal and shipping.

    Don't know the car,but it sure looks great with those 30-31 fenders.
    Did you get the hood with it? I'm not quite sure if I like the sag in
    the windshield though. None the less it's a really good score. Have

    The things i know thats been changed is a modern alternator,the seat has been redone (now red,used to be white).
    The wheels/caps,they also relocated the steeringbox sometime and changed the angle on the column.
    I also think that the mastercylinder was mounted on the firewall from the beginning.
    The firewall got some cuts and primer and i think you can se a mastercylinder just above the hoodsides on the old pic.

    Im going to relocate the steeringbox (the bracket is done later and ugly as hell) and fix the column,and of course change the alternator and modern wiring.
    My goal is to get it as close to the "original" look as possible.

    Very cool car, grew up in SoCal in the 50s-60s, never saw it, but there were lots of cars there then, hope you find some history on it
