Yeah I guess a paint job wouldn't be too expensive given what you are paying for the car itself..

With the airbags, I bet it stands up OK to let that front wheel peek out

I'm thinking something along these lines. Prefer the two-door "Ranch Wagon" version better, but that would probably price the rig out of my range.





(I dislike the '59 stock headlights, but I dislike the modded version above even more.)

Not half bad chopped, either. Not a flame fan, though.

alot in a year or two. not much on one of those rebuild in a week shows. they rely heavily on the huge aftermarket available for the most commonly restored cars. and that aint one of 'em.

Of course, Spunk Monkey Garage guys could throw a coat of flat clear over that bitch, slap on some half moons and wide whites, have Sue dust up the interior with alligator skin and suede and sell it for half a meeeelion dahllars.
