Project " Barn find" getting started

Here's a shot of my current project. A 69 with some 70's drag/street car feel. You can see the snorkel and slapper bars. Side pipes, lace panel paint, enamel lettering and some dis-stressed patina on the body with tons of vintage race stickers will hopefully give it that " old school" barn find look.

Got me started

It was a white 307 3rd Gen that got me wanting one. Didn't have the snorkel on it. I was working in Middletown at the time and the image of that car has always stuck with me.

Bingo! Im running a set of vintage 14x6 Cragar SS w/redline bias-ply up front and 15x8 steelies w/275-60 M&H Racemaster DOT drag tires in the rear. Shackles are already on, just cant see 'em. Went to a swap meet Friday and scored a set of "groovy" gold anodized Moroso valve covers, and rearend cover...far out. Below is a link for the side pipes. Dan, im hunting a 4 speed

Gotta have fiberglass bucket seats covered in diamond tuck vinyl. Headliner door panels, everything has to be diamond tuck. This will be so cool.

Thought this would be a fitting picture to go with your build. By discription in my mind your car will look similar to this one.

This is going to be a good theme. I look forward to some updates. That pic above makes me want to put the side mouldings back on my car, except I ground all the mounting studs off the body.

I've always like the Cragar S/S and Keystone Classic rims.
Looks good with the red sidewall.
