The 65 is done!

Well after 3 years and 2 months I finished my 65 442...been a lot of blood, sweat and tears but it really turned out nice....I gave the car to dad on Sunday and I wanted to share some pics. I added a pic from 65 with Mom and Dad sitting in his way back in the day.

Great job! My dream car. My dad is retiring next year and I’m looking to build him a 1949 truck. It wont be anywhere near this level but he will enjoy it. I think its awesome to go through all that for your parents.
