Hello.......thank you all very much for the kind comments......I really do appreciate them.........I am using HO scale: Head Frame Sheave`s for the 60`s style gasser front wheels..........I still need to modify them a little.......I also did some more work on the body.......I added wheel wells ,added more length to the trunk area and made a front window visor........and opened up the rear window........I still need to add the body trim and sand and shape.......just a quick mock-up........thanks for looking.

John, where did you come up with the idea to use the head frame sheave as wheels? Very ingenious.

Stephen.......I cruz over to the HO train store a couple of blocks from my house.........so much stuff you could look all day......I always buy something......... just came across them one day ......thought they might work for front 60`s style gasser wheels......I have used them on a few of my builds already........thanks

John... I love the mock up of this build. It is looking killer already. I also love how creative you always are on your builds. Totally cool about those front rims. Looking forward to your next update.
