    Ive had this for 25 years in my shed. Most of the body was made of Wood which is long gone! Started life as a Coupe and now is going to be a Roadster. Started out with the Help of my friends today tacking it back together and putting the floor in. Let the Fun begin!!

    Done right, (the tops of the doors may be tricky, especially the front), this is one "coupester" that will probably work.

  14. Without seeing it with the body on, the gearshift seems awful far back!

    Just remember: "when a problem comes along, you gotta Whippet"!
    (Just had to say that!)

    Nice build though, oughta have a lot of guys scatching there heads!
     
  15. Hemi-powered to boot! This is going to become a great rod, please keep the progress pictures coming
