A little Teaser. Wet sanding going on now. Meeting next week to make last cash infusion for labor and related materials.

We are inventorying all the little odds and ends needed to finish it up and make a final order.

Next order of business is installation of white vinyl top and burnt orange headliner. It will need to be dyed after installation.

Also ordered new steel wheels from Summit, to be painted FK5. Pics coming after install. The guys are doing the polish sanding now.

Haven't asked for the drive train yet.

Man, I bought one just like that for 350 bucks in the early 90's. Obly had a locked up wheel cylinder but i stripped it to put everything into a slant 6 convertible. Never did finish the project.

Looking back, a pretty good car got trashed.

The engine went to a guy with a 340 four speed cuda. Had everything needed to just drop it in.

Last I heard the convertible was bought by the guy who ran the Mopar events, who got arrested durung a fight at one. Name escapes me.

Headliner installed yesterday. Wheels delivered to Tab for the painting.

After the headliner is dyed burnt orange, the white vinyl top is going on.

Radial TAs have been mounted on the painted steelies, and the vinyl top was set to be put one, but it hadn't been laid out for a couple days to settle, so it is laying on the roof. Installer will return to put it on. (That would be kind of fun to go around installing tops and headliners on cars near completion.

No reason to post pics, until the top is on. the new wheels and tires are on, and the doors are back on. Stay tuned.

Off to St. Louis next weekend to get a bunch of finishing touch parts. Are 70 beauty rings different from other years? Brushed maybe?

70 is polished
71 is brushed

Steelies would not have trim rings unless it was a TA

white strip will be added some time after it is road worthy. I will schedule to drive by the local shop and have them added. Probably in the Spring.

Why did you put a narrow seam top on it?
