Since I have been talking about it, might as well start "another" build thread

I thought the title was fitting, but I will defer to Theron if he wants me to change it or relocate this new build thread since I don't consider myself a NOOB anymore

As of now, I told Greg I'd like to bring the chassis home to start building by September 1st. In the meantime, I have been looking for some photos to see if anything stands out. Can my fellow SOC'rs help by posting some on this thread??

Current build thoughts:

  • Vintage Motorcars 1955 Pre A Coupe body (clean shaven: no bumpers, no side molding, no emblems... just the basic lights, license plate light shine down, beehive rear lights, horn grill, headlights... that's it)
  • VW shortened chassis (or tube frame if Greg can get it done in time)
  • Carrera White exterior (a must)
  • Red Leather interior (a must)
  • Grey German Square weave carpet (not sure?)
  • Black Vintage 190's all around (4.5 inch rim as a spare in the trunk - black) (a must)
  • 2110cc Vintage Motorcars engine (he did goo d on the last one, so I'll get another one), A1 exhaust (center exit - or custom route through bumper holes since I won't have bumpers)
  • 3.88 Freeway flyer trans (NO, I AM NOT DOING A 5 SPEED! LOL!)

 

This will be an OUTLAW. I did a classic build. Now, I want an outlaw coupe. Lowered (maybe on bags) and loud as hell!

I will be building this myself, as I did my Speedster, but will be sourcing must parts through Greg. Like I did before, I plan to get some stuff from all the Vendors - it's the nice thing to do

Let the Coupe build BEGIN! ! ! !

It's all part of the madness, right?

(PS - First set of photos are not a 1955, but highlight the the white paint with black rims I like - thank you @MusbJim. The second set of photos show a true 1955 Pre A - imagine the same interior, but in red and exterior without bumpers. The third set is the famous outlaw by Emory (spelling?) - I like the little touches he did.

This is a 63', but that blue interior might be pretty cool even though I said the red was a must. "Different" should be a principle word in this build.

Interiors colors are as personal as paint. 

I like red but not really burgundy. I like the blue on silver cars. I like tan leather on Navy cars and just generally. Not really big on black especially black on black, been there done that.

Quick update...

Greg and I spoke yesterday and he plans to have the chassis ready by Wednesday of next week. I was hoping it would be ready tomorrow, but he is really busy and I don't want to be pushy... I did gave him a little crap just for fun

It will be nice to get another build started ! ! !

That 53 OUTLAW with the wipers anchored from the ROOF is amazing.....any chance that you can orchestrate that WIPER setup??

I too think it's a cool look.

I know the shop he uses and they do/have quality stuff. I'll likely do the same as I did with my Speedster build and pick out custom interior colors.

I have been leaning towards a blue leather and tartan interior.

I have named the car "Whitewalker" after the GoT series on HBO... so the colors will be white/blue/black/grey...

I have several months before I even think about the body and interior since I am doin another pan up build like the Speedster.
