Thanks for the kind words. I hate to sell it, but I just bought a '56 Pontiac Sport Coupe for my next project and I only have a single car garage.

Cheers!

I agree. If that car is half as good as it looks, someone can get into an old car for a great price.

Think how far that price takes you building one. Oh wait, you'll know soon with your next project car!

Very nice, beautiful car, all well done, price is very good - I have more than that in parts alone, interesting about your choice of tires:

"Tires = 215-60R17 (Front) / 255-50R17 (Rear)"

Mine are 205-60R15 (Front) / 255-70R15 (Rear) for added rake, eh?

If you don't mind my asking, what kit did you use to french the headlights and how did that all work out for you? Fitment issues? Access problems?

Thanks,

Dave

Hi Dave,

The tires were a tight squeeze in the rear with only about a 1/2" between the rubber and the quarter panel and I also had to remove the rear shock to let the axle drop enough to get the tire on.  But when you find a full set of 17" Torq-Thrust II's with the rubber on Craigslist for $600, you find a way to make it work!  :)

I used the headlight frenching kit from Hagan.  It went in farily easy with just a bit of sheet metal trimming and welding.  Accessing the headlight and adjustment screws is not a problem as the chrome trim ring is only held in by sprung retaining clips and can be easily removed.  It's may not the best kit out there, but I was certainly happy with the results.

Cheers,

Mitch
