Tom.......good point........but,I really toned down the detail on this build........I am really trying to capture the look it might have had in 65.......it must have had very limited detail.........I had no reference pictures of the chassis detail and only one partial picture of the interior........so Mark told me to run with it........so I gussed alot of chassis and interior. detail......I guess the main concern will be the body and paint.......I was going to re-chrome everything but,I used just the box chrome for an original look.........the wheels that were sent to me had been roughly cut off the tree but,I used them anyway..........thank you for your interest in this build

Cool John! I'm looking foreward to seeing it and meeting you at GSL!

I have a whole collection of old customs that I've cleaned up, rebuilt or outright redone just for the history of the hobby. I have a lot of fun at it since I am restoring them to the build quality they were originally done in back in the day. Such as:

Before (body was broken in half, see crack above rear wheel) This was a gift from Howard Cohen

to after! Complete with the velvet interior cleaned. I even left the faded chrome on the wheels.
