Thought I would give a try at a period era mild custom build.

I am pretty much sold on this tire/wheel combo

Love the shoebox's colour combo & the Lancer caps will suit the theme perfectly . Custom grille perhaps ?? 

Is there a post about the 55 Nomad ( I may have previously "drooled & commented "  over this one LOL)

And... I just noticed the 63? Plymouth Saveloy (er thats a sausage Spence ... ) Tongue TiedSAVOY ....

Not sure about the grille been kicking around a few ideas but none have really had the "Yes Feel" maybe a 54 Chevy center grille section floating in the surround? Set the headlights back inside the housing giving a frenched appearance.

Yes I have gotten a little further on the 55 Nomad Gasser

1955 Chevy Nomad Gasser Need to get some better lighting for pictures

1955 Chevy Nomad Gasser Pretty Happy with the way it is turning out so far

Yes x a bazillion ! 

And its a 409 !! PHOAR ! 

and its a 62...... Max wedge ( is that the 413/426 with the 'extra long' cross over  intake manifold ??)  *swoon* .... LOL Only recently saw one of these over here in the UK @ the Mopar Nats . My parents (....who used to run the Mopar Muscle Club UK back in the early '80's - I was 10) finally got to go to another meet up with old members from the club ,and among the many "standard fare" (I'm ashamed to say I was 'bored' with 68/9 Chargers !!) were some rare early 60's ones .... even a couple of wagons !!

62 would be a 413 and would have one of the cross ram intakes like the 2 in the lower left ( I was digging thru the junk box pulling some of the old goodies )

These are the "Long Rams" that were in some of the 300's and Dodge and Plymouths (Not Super Stockers, the T Bucket belongs to a friend)

Everytime I go to the MoPar Nats here in Ohio it is pure overload as well as Chryslers at Carlise. On the 68-70 Chargers my number one pick :)
