Personally, I dig the bolt-on panel look with the industrial flat grey. I even like the a panel cutout on the one side. Everything else (odd locker vents in wing, half-rack on the roof, and paper plate stapled to the trunk), hopefully makes sense to the owner...

My neighbor is getting his classic together . He got it back last week and went to his first Super Car Sunday event . He has it reliable with a new engine , suspension , wheels and tires and has some more plans for it . Larger flairs to cover the poke is on the short list .

Love the woody. Your buddy's classic looks really clean. The interior is a bit sparse, but it's still awesome.

I'll pass along your compliments . He is looking at some more competitive type buckets as replacements. He's just not sure if he wants to go high backs and forever forgo having rear passengers.

Haha. Yeah. I sort of gave up on rear passengers. My seat is almost purely cosmetic. If he doesn't want a full race seat, there are a lot of nice folding seats to consider out there. As well as creating your own brackets with sliders. I'll likely get rid of my flip seats for some slide seats when the time comes to change out.

In my 66 I had Corbeau GT-8's on tilt brackets that I could lean forward just enough for someone to get in back , if they really wanted to

Sorry, No.

When I put mine in there wasn't a internet, much less a link

I would give Seven Enterprises or Mini Mania a shot but I'm just guessing.

As far as I'm aware, they're OEM aren't they? That's how the OEM seats moved so people could get in the back rather than folding down like modern cars.

Mine came with them.
