    Always has been one of my favorites, My Uncle Charley bought one brand new and I have a lot of fond memories as a young boy in that car.

    The hardest parts to find were perfect polara 500 letters for the doors. I bought the white 4 door hard top for the emblems and chrome.

    Not sure it will make it this year. We are working on other projects. PPG deltron base coat & PPG 4000 clear coat The 4000 clear is the best out there for the price. But that's just my thought
