    Neat car! Wonder if they ever considered skirts? Probably not with reworked fender opening.

    No. That`s the Les Po Po owned by Bob Crespo. Built in 62. Moriarity owned it for a little while then sold it to Fatty Maguire(on the HAMB) who is having Customs by Flash on the HAMB restore it.

  30. Those are washers on the plugs. They seal the plug on early heads. The later model heads had a tapered seat to seal the plugs.
