Thank you! Much better!
A-MEN !!!!! Such a great picture..
Suddenly ,, I like Cabriolets...
I always thought that Chrysler wire wheels were hard to beat. Here's one just keepin it clean ,simple and classy...
Not one of the better lookin' '50's car,
but if its nice, lowered in front, then I like most every car.
Stance and wheels tires !!!! make it happen
MOOSE, Looks so darn good !!!
Hope you don't mind me riffing off the beautiful job you did.
The more ideas the better...Looks good!!!!
IF I saw it coming down the street, I would turn around and follow it, to get a better look.
I am like that ....
Hi, having trimmed the front coils on the 64 the car no longer has a nose bleed attitude but I feel there is still room for lowering at the front, say about an 1"-1.5" - would someone be kind enough to visualize (rear should stay as is)? Thanks in advance.
Another Race Truck
@ Madfish: thanks, I think this is how it will end up.
I would have never thought of 2 tone green ... Dang... WOW !
sadly skirts are even more rare than the car ...
I found a set of wheel opening moldings out in California... your rendition tells me I need to buy them
I would love a set of the Kelsey Hayes wheels but I think a set are more than I paid for the car

OK, One more time and maybe I'll get it right. New photo and would like Black running board covers and Maroon Wheels please. Thank you photoshop guys !!
Looking for wheels that would set off my car maybe slots or cragars or torque thrusts up front ?
Sent from my iPhone using The H.A.M.B. mobile app
Here are three ideas. Classic slots, new Hurst 5 spokes, and a Buick Riviera sport wheels.
Different shade of maroon
Can someone please show me these wheel/tire combinations. Black and yellow wheels with wide whites and Salt Flats with blackwalls. And maybe a little bigger wheel in the back? 17" and more sidewall. Thanks
No 17-inchers in H.A.M.B. land...
themoose did this for BigO. Would someone care to tweak it a bit?
What I have in mind is...
I) drop tail lights beneath side trim
II) pre-'55 wheel covers (Packard's are nice)
III) '46 style skirts (more square in rear)
IV) shortened hood trim (standard Barris mod)
V) ditch the visor
And thanks a ton to all the contributors on this thread!
I love it!
(Scooped cruiser skirts would be nice. )
Super Duper, Daddy-o!
I can't believe the Packard caps!
Thanks a hundred, madfish!
Can someone please Photoshop the car black. Also the upper grill bar just below the hood black as well. Thanks in advance.
"Also the upper grill bar just below the hood black as well."
Why? So it will look like it doesn't belong?
Sorry my mistake I didn't know there are Photoshop police on this thread.
