Looks great... White just brings out that clean look... But I am a little bias since 7 of my vehicles are white...

THANK'S TO ALL for comments . I spent many days in salvage yards from Virginia , Pennsylvania < New York < New Hampshire and all over Maine looking for parts , Buying many NOS online .Lots of left over's which I have for sale in post's this site ,
I completely took her down to bare metal , replaced most all parts , put front Disc brakes , Factory Duels , changed the interior to fabric , with Black top , Did all myself , except the machine work on motor took about 7 years , Maiden voyage to PA about 700 miles one way , cruising speed around 75 MPH like riding on air all the way , Fantastic voyage in the boat , on return stooped on Maine turnpike at 2 PM shut down for gas and Breakfast , after trying to start her ,NOTHING ,DEAD , tried jump still nothing , called for flatbed tow .
got to Garage about 9 PM on lift the 1 thing I DID NOT replace or rebuild the STARTER BENDIX went bad , replaced with another , proceeded home , Since then She has got many 1st place trophy's .

THAT'S MY STORY and I'M STICKING TO IT .

Beautiful Dan... Great job! I am partial to the 68's too and the white / black combo is timeless. Thanks for the great parts - all arrived and will be put to good use! Dave

Stunning looking car! I like the 84 wire wheel covers - they make the car look very elegant. Just curious about why the huge down turned exhausts? They just look a little out of place.

Amazing! It's always nice to see one get done and to see one basically back to stock and not just a hot rod.
