Thank's torinoluvr.....I'am trying to do the best that I possibly can, without the high dollar price tag. I'am "old school" and doing it the old school way. lol By the way, I'am building a " driver" not a show car, just trying to make it look good also. Thanks again for the good comments guys. Bill

Can any one help me, I'am having a problem finding the 17 digit serial number on the car. I have located the 10 digit serial number on the frame. Just don't know where the rest of it is.

[Reply to this comment]

mrmagoo02 on Jun 10, 2016 said:

Found out today that the frame number of ten digits were all they had in 54. That really had me going for a while.

Thank you very much for the positive comments, azmusclecar. Most of the parts are being made by me,but I will keep going on her. I had a couple of strokes last year, and that has really slowed me down, but I plam on doing her right here on this site. Bill
