PR coupe update

The baddest car on the island is nearly done !
I sent Manuel a note asking if he had drove it yet

First run complete   Check!

That was Fun Check!

A neck breaker  Check
I like the reply !  I can't imagine the response his coupe will get in Puerto Rico
Has it the upholstery shop now for some soft stuff.
FE Ford is big, and strong. Dual fours and a 4 speed !

bare the interior looks good, with new threads it will be stellar

What do y'all think of it ?
Attention to detail is Dale's passion I'd say
Olds V8

The RPU is for sale...

rear window is the classic mail slot

emerging from the lab

wheels and tires

make the car
Nick swapped tires and wheels (and other stuff) on his coupe.
I think the blackwalls and wires really make the coupe look mean.

Hey customers ! Check your boxes, you may have the golden ticket !

No not really.
Some how I made a mistake ( unbelievable but true)
I sent someone two Vega steering boxes.
And you don't need two for my chassis' 
Will go back thru shipping records, and see if I can figure it out.
But if you got two and only paid for one, please let me know.
Thanks !
