Mell, I have a 1941 Pontiac model 25 coupe which is the same body shell as your Chevy. It looks you're keeping the stock steering, so did you know that an EM Corvair turn signal housing will fit perfectly on your column? The column tubes are the same OD. I've had Corvair T/S on my Pontiac for 47 years.

Looks like a good project.Too bad the fenders arent there.Does it still have the engine and transmission? How about the interior what kind of shape is it in?

I'm sure Mel doesn't "baby" his HotRods! And I'm sure it destined to be a "sleeper"..

In '65 I had a'56 "puke green" Plymouth Savoy "business coupe" put a '60 dual quad 383 / 330 hp with Torqeflite trans...

With the original 4.10 diff.gears for the original 6 cyl.... it made me some good $$$ street racing...

Called it the "Green Weenie"
