Thanks for the info. You have built a good solid car. Glad to see you are using some Canadian parts. What are your plans in regards to the leather interior?

Leather Interior

I have installed a *****in dash with 6 Daytona electrical gauges. The dash is body color and the gauges are classic style with gold bezels. The interior will be done in "buckskin" tan leather. Sice the posted pictures I have installed "smooth" body colored running boards as well. Tunes will come from a Sony CD am/fm unit. Seat selection is still up in the air bench or buckets/ The shifter/ emergency brake lever are by Gennie and are a combined unit.

Wow! I'm sure you are not going to let your unfinished upholstery stop you from enjoying the rod run season but once you get that interior in you will be done. What's next?

Long Term Plans

In the future I want to install air conditioning. I am also interested in a different wheel package. Presently I am running 15x6 vette rallys up front and 15x7 at the rear. With a different back space wheel I will be able to put more rubber under the car. I have the space if I can move the tire in 3 inches. I like the old Cragar SS wheels and will select wheels of a similar look.

The Cragar SS wheels will look great on that 37. I had them on my 40 Ford and my 51 Chev pickup. Those Vette wheels look pretty nice but I understand the need for more rubber. I have always said that rear wheelwells should be filled to overflowing with rubber.
