Down to the Final Details.........


Recommended Posts

We're down to cleaning the engine bay, and putting the interior back together. Lots of cleaning and polishing left to do....


I didn't want to post any shots until we were done, but I think everything came out nice. I think that each and every mod we came up with worked well to compliment the overall theme of a modern twist to a great classic.


We put about 20 miles on the car and it's running great. Ran her on the freeway this afternoon at about 65mph. Runs great, stops great, no leaks, steering is nice and tight. All the lights are working, wipers working, etc. Squeak or two to chase down, but that's about it.


I need those Dakota Gauges next. With the interior theme, nothing else will work but these....

WOAH, that looks great! I love to see when coupes look this good! What size wheels and tires did you go with, they are perfect!

Thanks. The wheels are. Boss motorsport 338. 18x8 front and 20x10 rear.

Looking great! I loved the stripe when you posted pics of the car last year (or the one before that? I don't remember exactly. )

Started the build in 07 and it's been painted twice since then. Most recently two weeks ago. It just wasn't perfect before

Pretty car I've often thought about doing a coupe, I love the body style of the 71-73 coupe's. Great job!

Going fast is fun but life is short so slow down and enjoy the ride :D Frank
