Very nice...beautiful color....

My only suggestion, lose the BFG raised white letters.  Either go with a correct looking Michelin or those would look better turned around/black walls.  The car will look much richer

These are old pictures. I just purchased some whitewall tires.

Hi Bill. hoping to in the spring. Did you notice who is sitting behind my car in the last photo? Our old friend Mr. Karns. That was the last car show he attended in Oct 2017. Miss him.

Look forward to seeing you.

Outstanding
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

I posted a thread about my 289 replica about 5 or 6 years ago but was lost in the great meltdown  :-\
A little history, This is my tribute to csx2367. I've loved this car since I first saw it cruising around No New Jersey. It was owned by Joe Angeleri who had been the original buyer. Joe owned 2367 for I believe 46 yrs. Its' presently owned by Dave Wathen. I built this myself using a Factory Five chassis and the body was made by Mr. Bruce (Bruce Chervenack). I fabricated all the aluminum sub structure, engine compartment, interior dash and glove box. The glove box door was a challenge but I'm pleased with the way it came out. And Oh yes, the trunk. I tried to replicate as closely as possible with what I had to work with. The motor is a 1965 289 HiPo, (I love the sound of solid lifters, almost erotic) with an original 289 Cobra dual quad set up. Carter carbs, 3258s and 3259s. It has a five speed Tremec and a straight axle 3:55 trac loc rear. Here are some pics.











I knew that situation well. Nice job. You pretty much captured it.

I've been kicking around building the Factory5 FIA car. I was thinking of doing a vintage dirty as raced looking wrap with a couple bare spots of "aluminum" showing.

Love your car. Great color. Yes that solid lifter sound is really something.
