I got the car for a retirement project. I plan on retiring soon. So for now its just gathering information and what parts I can get a hold of. I have a friend with the sbc and he is willing to give it to me. so all I have to do build it and install it. Got the transmission on line also so that will not be a problem. I know its going to take a year or so, but that is what retirement is all about.
John you are right the coupes do make a great looking car. Of all the cars I looked at this one stuck with me.
There is a guy in Ala. rebuilding the same car and has kept up with pictures and information on what he as done so far. He is going back to what it looked like in 47.
Look at AAAC website his name is Scott.
