i am in the process of putting in the interior, i have done all the work myself in my garage , i have gone and bought compressor and tools to do this job and i want to thank all the input i have gotten over the past 2.5 years from all of you here at MoParts.com, i could not have done it without this site and all of the great input from fellow members and all the great vendors that i have used thru this site, i will finish up the pics when i finish the car, the money is low right now and i trying to catch my second wind,
Thanks MoParts,

Randy

thanks for the input , alot of people around here think i am crazy for putting so much time and money in an old car, they do not share the passion i have for pieces of history,

however, when i fire up the 440 and ride around the block, there are the same people wishing they had the car.
