I figure it is time to put up a picture of my ol' ball and chain. She is a 1964 vert. I bought this car in 1993 from Joe Chirco (yes, the shop owner) for $650. The thing was sitting on all flats, bumped front and rear but mostly complete.

My original goal with this car was to mostly convert it to look like a 1954 vert with suicide doors. I had the hearts, an oval dash, oval front/rear clips, semaphores and housings, oval pan, ribbed doors, etc. I dragged it home, stripped it, blasted it and shoveled it over to a body guy for the major work. The guy got the car and did the clips as planned and then completely flaked out. After he had the car for over a year I decided I needed to get it back, duh.

So here the car has sat for over 11 years. Off and on I have been motivated to go out and hose her off and start planning. Things have just never gotten off the ground.

I have recently begun my planning stages again. This time my plan is to make a heb-style fenderlass roadster. The front end will be moved forward and/or flipped. The ford front ends just seem too wide for my taste. I am unsure as to whether I want to replace the windshield with a hot rod type chrome windshield frame or to chop and work the existing one. I am pretty sure I want a leaned back split glass setup though.

The doors will be suicide still but I will be reversing the existing work that was done. The original hardware was going to be used before but, I think I have changed my mind. The door latches, at least on my car, are too big to fit on the other side of the opposite door. Instead I will be undoing the work and replacing them with a hidden hinge setup and Bearclaw brand latches. I have heard really good things about the bearclaws.

I'd like to put a bench seat in it as well. I'll have to do some cruising through the junk yards and see if I can turn up anything usable.

As long as I can get the junk cleaned out of the garage I can get my baby placed in there. It sure would make working on her easier.
