That was one of my final three choices as well. It is going to look tremendous. What color interior?

Looking really great.
As mentioned - that chrome work and grille treatment are nice.
The black and white interior works great on the white car but I think the all black will be much better on the color choice you made - going to be a fun cruiser indeed.
Had someone tell me one time that "white looks plain - like you couldn't afford a color" Oh well - to each his own.

Have you converted to front disc brakes?

(edit - oh forgot to mention - mine has been in the family since new also - my Dad and Mom bought it new - well - the car actually found them instead of the other way around)

Next time tell them its the base for a Watson custom paint job!
Everything goes with white exterior and should you at some point want to swap the interior to red, blue or whatever, its a possibility.

Good looking Bird!

Nice ride! I like it. the black and white interior works. I have not done any mechanical yet. it runs like a top, because it stayed in the garage for over 30 years in Los Angeles there was no rust. Is it difficult to convert to disc brakes? I know I want to lower the stance 2 inches but that seems to be a tough job.

NICE, Can't wait to see it with the chrome back on.
It gives me hope and inspiration to get my done. Been waiting for about 20 years, so figure it is time I finish it. LOL
