Anyone that knows me knows I'm a sucker for Red interior.
Make the car Black with a Ragtop and it's a no brainier. I picked this thing up today in a trade.
'61 Ragtop, Black with Red interior. Fresh freeway flyer trans, 1776 with dual 40's, locking column, Berg locking shifter, and a few other ool items

No too impressed with the stance though.... Reminds me of a DKP car.  thumbsdown





I slapped it around with the lowering stick, changed the wheels, and cleaned it up a little.
It's lay'd the F&*K out now  thumbs up



I still have to do something about this booty exhuast though.



Why call t The Sequel?
It looks damn close to this '62 I sold a few months ago.

Thanks guys.

Not sure a stock exhaust will flow OK with the 1776.

On the To Do list

New running board mats / trim.
Get rid of the chrome deck lid light.
Different exhaust
Clean the door panels
Shine up the chrome

Ive run 1776's with a stock exhaust you just gotta drill out the restriction pressing behind the heatexchanger inlets to the exhaust . then it flows as well as a 1 5/8 header for half the cost and twice the ground clearence  wink

I switched it up a bit with repop Sprints from Skim (off his Bus), raised it up a bit and been cruising it pretty regularly.
