Welcome to the CF! It looks like you are familiar with the C2 series and then some. I see the Jag in the background for. Are you going back to stock/correct? What's the background on the car? Post pics as often as possible. Dennis

Actually looks like several cool cars in the photos, although covered up. What other cars do you have?

Look forward to seeing photos of your progress, although I must say the car looks pretty darn good in that first pic.

I'm impressed by the doors painted to look like bricks.

Thank you, we will post progress shots until completed.

We have several mid years, 63 and 65 both fuel cars and a pair of 67 L68’s.

The Jag is a 69 e type fixed head coupe. And the Ferrari is a 2015 California.

Welcome to the forum. It looks like you have the basis for what will be a great looking '67 BB tri power car when finished. As the others have said that's a heck of a garage you have. Good luck with this project going forward. By all means keep the pictures and progress coming.
