Here is Gary's 1963 Coupe.

As some of you may remember this car was completely disassembled back in march of 2010.The car was painted in its beautiful original color Laurel Green/Fawn Interior I must say this is an awesome combo.George Lucas did his magic on all the Aluminum and stainless trim.It looks better than New old stock.Another good friend of ours Dave 1Badnov accomplished all the fab work.He is incredibly talented.Now that most of the Fabrication is completed the car is back at my house for assembly,engine break in and finishing touches.We are using Chuck Churches upper and lower kits.Vintage Air gen 4 set-up.I did it steering column with tilt.The car has a cammy small block with a 700R4 Trans.3:73 10 Bolt posi rear.


















The wiring is from American Autowire.This is their Classic Update Series.Very nice way to update your entire fusebox and wiring.You have to install your own connectors that they supply.

Cragers are sweet! especially the 8" wide ones in the rear.

It is a Goodmark steel hood. I had to drill the holes and the front diecast fit pretty good.The hood itseld took some time and patience to get to fit.

But it fits good.
