Thanks K..the car is actually a lot further along. The body is on, all wiring is in, the tremec 5 speed linkage is good to go and all we need to do is bolt in the interior and get the front fenders on. Also, the exhaust needs to be done..going with electronic cut-outs of course.....


I will also stress that everything (right down to the colored lamps in the speedo) is either brand new NOS or rebuilt better than new. Their are NO chinese repro parts on this car, and that includes the 14,000 dollar ALL AMERICAN motor....Which by the way was tuned by Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins..


See those refinished stainless strips on the body?...Hand refinished by a guy in Vermont...3000 bucks..

total cost so far is north of 75,000....

fastharry's American graffiti 55...


I will more pics up in the next few weeks....
