Hi Richard! I see you posted pix of your J Code Black Raven! She looks really nice! I think the Black Ravens, with the engine chrome package and the external chrome package of the air scoop, the headlight covers, the curved tail fin sections and the eyebrows over the taillights is one of the sharpest looking of the Squarebirds. There are certain colors where the chrome package makes the Squarebird stand out even better and the Black Raven is one of them.

Love the wheels/tires and stance. What tire size are you running? Is it lowered at all?

The pics on the track were taken at Philip Island, where they run the Moto GP, it was the Custom Nationals here's a link to some pics

DGS the tires are 225/70 14 BFG Silvertowns, don't think it's lowered but yes has a great stance. The car was built by a pilot who was in Washington state drives like a dream but definately no race car

The wheels / tire / stance combo is very, very good, and give the car a lot of depth and attitude.
Of course itīs a race car! You can tell from how she looks! The tires are wide and racey :) Just put a number on the side, and hit the throttle!:cool:

That is a very nice looking 1960 430cid Bird. Raven Black is the BEST looking color against shiney chrome!!! :cool:

I'm more of a stock '59 hubcap guy, but those would probably FLY-OFF that car!!! LOL!!! :D

14's eh? I would have sworn they were 15's. They fill the wheel wells nicely.

Oh, and I'm partial to the Raven Black myself as well.

Well the interior is done all the Bird needs now is a final polish and a new home. It will be off to a couple of shows and hopefully someone buys it there if not I'll try Ebay

Here's a few pics of the interior
