Nice. I wouldn't chop it, I'd do it gasser style with a tube front axle. Wouldn't have to sit sky high, just level. I'd keep the 500 Caddy because it's big and different and has good power.

See neverdone. Great minds do think alike.
When you french the headlights please do it the "real" way and don't use the frenching kits that make the headlight look tunneled more than frenched. I dig the skirts as well. Side pipes could go either way for me.......
Any thoughts in regards to the rear window?
Keep us posted.

Here's some perspiration pics for you.( Not that you need any ).
Both of these used the wraparound back glass. Black one looks like they sunk it into the rear panel as well as using Pontiac belt line stainless trim.

Not sure on the rear window yet.

My vision of frenching the lights is this......



Actually a lot of my vision is of that car..... except for the paint. I see a nice two tone job on it. time will tell how much gets to happen.

Nice.
Those headlights are way beyond frenched. A classic custom trick is to use caddy or 55 chevy headlight eyebrows on these chevy's. The ones on the car pictured are definately fab'd. Although they may have started out as caddy as the front fenders have the caddy body lines on them and the use of the Cadillac front bumper.
Pretty low chop as well, hence the "Fast back" look to the top. And the rear window looks to be from the 53 -150 series. But hard to tell from this angle.
Lots of body mods as well. Extended rear quarters. Also looks like 56 Packard tailights.

I guess I'm one of the few that like these little Chevy's at stock roof height. That's with exception of the green Voodoo Larry car, but that car is extensively metalworked on every panel.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
