Easy guys. Everybody's familiar with the speed of light and the speed of sound... this build will move at the speed of smell.

Moving forward at the speed of smell, the seller provided some old snapshots...







Late '70's? We don't know for sure, they were given to the previous owner by the previous owner, if I recall correctly. (Note: The original beam axle is still under the car in these pics.) Dig the crushed velvet, "turbine" wheels, truck-stop front lamps, shag carpet and chrome garnish moldings. The garnish moldings are in nice shape and will remain. Everything else is out the window, including the '65 Chevy tail lights, which I believe are lying in wait for a bonfire... or a trip to the range.

On a personal note, look at the first pic above and the panel alignment. This drives me nuts and I've seen "finished, professionally built high-dollar" cars with equally poor fit. This will be FULLY addressed before it's done... or you'll find us both swingin' from the rafters.
