What is the back story on fabricating the trunk (boot as the Brits say)? And the glove box?
Great looking car, well done sir!

Parts I believe were sourced from Moss Motors for the luggage rack

No, that's an original AMCO luggage rack. :)

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.

John,

   We need to get everyone together and hoist a glass in memory of “Da Mook” :D we miss him as well.

Look forward to seeing you.
