All in all, it was a 2 year project a friend and I did.A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this. Itturned out way beyond our expectations. I invite and encourage you to come inspect it, as the pictures do it no justice. I do have more pictures on request. we are both "old school" and wanted to preserve it just the way it was supposed to be. Drive as is, or take it to the level you want and beyond. It drives like a dream and it's something you can drive down the road. You'd be the only one at the car cruise in this. Dare to be different, for sure!!! By the way, when's the last time you saw one go across the auction block on Barret Jackson or Mecum? It's NOT a "bubble top" It's a 2 door Sport Sedan. Let me know how many you find for sale online.
