Nice! Are the wheels aftermarket or the kit wheels?

Wheels are aftermarket. Fronts are PPP wide five's and the rears are Early racing classics(erc). I had the rears for quite awhile and don't know if they are still available or not, but the fronts are widely available still.

They look really good. Do you have any pics of them in progress? I have the AMT '37 Chevy car to do and want to build it like one I saw as a kid in the 60s but I would have to rely on memory or try to contact the previous owner in upstate NY.

Who is PPP ?

I do not have any WIP pics but i have some with the body off. The thing i do with these kits(35 chevy tobias frame) is to lower the body on the frame by not using the interior piece that glues inside the body and cut the notches in the firewall longer(higher) to let the body drop.

The beer keg for a fuel tank reminds me in the late 60's I used a portable air tank for a fuel tank in a modified. I too love the looks of the wide 5's. Would be proud to have them on my shelf. They look great nice work!
