Dave...go to automotivetouchup.com and have her go through it and pick the color she wants.  Enter the make, model and year and you'll get actual factory colors.


Maybe she'd like 1967 Chevy Butternut yellow.  Always a nice look!

Mike...the red one has American Racing wheels on it, I believe.   THAT is what I am going to find and use on this build.  (black spokes/centers)


I really never could latch on to the "dubs" look of today.  I know that big diameter rims and small radial sidewall dimensions handle better because of less flex...but I really LIKE the looks of a 15" rim with a lot of "sidewall"...


You don't have to call me old-fashioned...just call me OLD!


(my real life '64 Studebaker has plain rims and "dog dish caps", for cryin' out loud!)

 You can never have too many Deuces!  They are spectacular any way you slice them...box-stock to channeled-and-chopped.

I always thought that the '60 Ford was a very well thought out design that got very little appreciation at the time of its birth.  Great looking cars.  Problem was the real ones rotted out like the '58 Chevy did!  Not many of the Fords around now.

That fact that it cleaned up so nice speaks to the reality that as a 15 year old I simply ripped it out of the box and blew some paint on it!!!   No prep work at all!
