Excellent! You're giving the customer what they want so the car is perfect.
Everyone (including me) will want to suggest their own personal tastes for the car but, ultimately, it's built to the owners tastes.
He or she has excellent taste and the workmanship looks spot on.
Post photos here when it's done so some of us (me) can drool over it.

New Indian blocks have been produced for a few years now.
Not cheap, but for a purist, we don't mind spending extra..........that is, if and when the seasoned Pontiac blocks become non existent.

I had that system installed and its unbelievable (bigger front a back sway bars, four-link, stronger control arms, air shocks, etc.). A 1960s muscle car that handles.

We offer Air-Ride components on our cars. It is one of the many options that are available on our chassis.


Rukee: We build many LS engines every year for customers, from 400-1,000+HP. Most of our higher powered motors start as LS2s or LS7s.

OUTSTANDING!!!! Love it but I am a 64 guy. I shaved the emblem off my hood also. Hope the owner doesn't think he has a one only hood cause I have seen 4 others like that. One is on a ole Dennis Kirban 64! Les

Every car we get into the shop as a project gets the Schwartz smoothing treatment. If you look at our site you'll see we've even smoothed entire engine bays before, most notably in a 1970 Dodge Dart project car. It makes it a lot easier to mount things and gives a MUCH cleaner look.
