Ouch! That's Sweet! More....
Looks like it's been sectioned? Pretty neat looking car!
The body is channeled 2.5", the quarters and hood are sectioned, the fenders are moved up 2.5" on the body (still in stock relationship to the frame) and radiused and the front wheels and arches are moved forward 2". We're just getting started.
Killer man Killer keep us posted
Great to see something like this so close to home. Please do a bulid thread!
WWOW, looks AWESOME Don. Please keep us updated.
Not ever been a fan 40's with too far from stock lines, but this one has a special look. I am subcribed, so keep us posted.
The owner told me about this....looks great Don...

Don (DRD57) -
Very, very cool!
... just don't paint it "Tony Nancy Yellow" :
Looks just perfect!!! Keep posting pics!!
I'm not normally a fan of sectioned cars but this one sits real nice. Good work.
Cool looking car! Body mods look great.
Yes! I think it's because there were small amounts removed, not over done!!
Tony Nancy? I always heard it as Tony Danza yellow, as a jab towards Danza standing right there... Either way, cool ride
Looks killer. What about a certain caddy? are you going to be at LA roadster show this year if so I keep an eye out for you.
Nice, that is going to be one slick car that just might make a stock bodied car sitting next to it look a bit out of proportion. Not wholesale changes that slap you in the face but very subtle changes that just improve the lines a bit although they did take a great amount of work to accomplish.
fenders stock to frame.
It's still got running boards?
Either you extended the fenders so the running boards would be 2.5" lower or you cut 2.5" off the bottom of the doors and 1/4 panel.
Which is it?
That's sweet. Keep us updated please.
Still has running boards which are still in the stock relationship to the frame as are the fenders and bumpers. We cut 2.5" off the bottom of the doors and quarter panels
