Originally started in California, 1962....body on original frame and the top was chopped. Old school style with lead. The garnish moldings were all modified to match the chopped windows. That makes the hard part of this project complete. Approximately 1995, a man from Wisconsin purchased the project. The assumption is that the original owner went off to the Vietnam war and never returned. In 2000, my father purchased this project at the Kalamazoo Street Rod Nationals North. We decided to complete the project with nothing newer than 1962 in honor of the original vision for the project. I purchased a 1956 Chrysler New Yorker St. Regis, drove it into our shop and removed the 354 hemi drive train and sold the carcass. This was our drive train of choice...to be different. My father passed away while the hemi resided on the cherry picker over the frame to look at clearances. I find myself 16 years later still staring at this project and have decided to let it go. I had a frame built for the car and the fabricator talked me into the Mustang II front crossmember and Chevrolet small block motor mounts. I often times wanted to remove that crossmember and return to the hemi plan. I lost my father way too soon and just can't get back into this project. I have considered finishing it and then selling it, but this leaves the design and type of build up to you.
I am an owner at American Gasser in Saginaw, MI. We build hot rods everyday from the ground up. We can assist with this project to any level of completion you desire. We can finish the floor and firewall sheet metal and you can take it from there or go as far as completely finished.
Vehicle is for sale on other websites, if it sells first, I will have to close this auction early.
