I have made 2 comments mentioning you, they failed to publish the first one, and I doubt they publish the second. The censors have me on block I think.

What's with the off road stance?

It does appear to be riding high.  Wrong springs?  The tires appear to fill the wheel wells to an appreciable degree.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

The back is definitely too high and it has the wrong tires on it, that is probably why.

BaTs censor policy is a mystery

I dont know the history of the car. Having started in Illinois, I would look the body over very closely. It appears there are restoration photos, so those might be helpful. It might explain some things that do not appear to be correct. I find the "before" pictures most helpful. Reproduction tags always need an explanation in my opinion

The engine is after the car was built and has an aluminum intake. Its a nice upgrade, but not correct.

Also it started out with a white top. One of my peeves is stripes and emblems and they miss the mark

Coralsnake  Also it started out with a white top. One of my peeves is stripes and emblems and they miss the mark.

Well thanks for helping me on that when I got my 68 convert.  I was told that wrong color. So I replaced the side stripes.

Thx

No problem. I understand not everyone wants or tries to be original.

But, I enjoy seeing them that way!

I just pulled the emblems off a buddys KR. I told him it was risky, but he said go for it. They look a lot better now they are in the correct position. Luckily no damage to the paint
