I still own 3 SRIII framed cars, but no C1 cars currently. I think that Billy Dawson and Mike Stockdale are two of the nicest and most helpful guys in the business, and they both will do exactly what they say they they will do.

I changed to C5 suspensions on the last few of SRIII cars that I have built, as I think that it is a better suspension. The C4 stuff is still a pretty good option.

Moving forward (a year later!) I pulled the trigger on a SR III for the first 62 and now I am looking for the additional parts I am going to need, ie, radiator, steering column, power brake booster ......... and other items I have not yet ID'id.

I am looking for some direction in this area from those of you that have completed this modification

This thread is 9 years old. You might have better luck by starting a new thread, with a different subject line like "help with restomod parts" or something.
