    Those headlights don't appeal to me but they need to stay with the car.

    The Tug McGraw , I was alluding to ; is the one who played for the Phillys. Father of country music star Tim McGraw. I see the name McGregor was mentioned…who actually owns this cool short?

    I need a set of headlights for my tub. He could make a little money by selling me his extras and the car would look better. The mounts are little too, uhhh, "agricultural" for me as well.

    Why bend the radius rods out?
    Love it, except the headlites. But they do need to stay. I’d want a white interior too if changing things up. Which shouldn’t happen. :confused:

    The story I got was that it was built in the late 50's, street driven, drag raced, and driven to car shows. The truck was parked in 64. Les lived in Newton, Ks and they all called him "teen angel" because he always had a DA haircut. All of his rides were painted the same shade of purple and his daily was a 40 Ford pick up. This little truck is as cool up close as it looks in the photo's!
