Thanks old school all the way, don't understand the popularity of the big wheel look, just a dinosaur I guess. To each his own.

I lost a mustang in Sandy, had magnums, tt's have been put on everything since the 60's. I always loved them on any car.
You can come out from under the chair it's all good.
By the way I have seen your car around in the forum and that is a great front end shot. About as good as you can get without chrome bumpers

Thanks, paint is 45 yr, old, definitely a 10 ft.
I was serious about your front end, I was actually thinking of doing a 73 with one for the same look.
Drive safe

I like this look. Same size as C5 wheels. You may want to see if the car can be lowered a little. It will fill the wheel wells and handle a bit better.

You can easily lower the rear and inch with longer bolts. Front is a little harder as a loop has to be cut out of the spring.

Just a thought.

His plans are to lower it all the way around. David, the owner of the car was using my lift to put the wheels on. The ebrake cable will have to be moved to the top of the swing arm

Awesome, that is an easy fix. simply cut off the clips with a grinder and weld them on the top.
