It is mostly legal. I just need to install a horn, and maybe even put the windshield wipers back on. Oh yeah, and put it in neutral when passing schools and hospitals... LOL

Here are some photos. Deciding if I should start fixing it now or simply enjoy driving it for a year and collect all the parts I want. What do you think?

The alignment does seem to be a bit off....:eek: That is some of the parts I am collecting. I found an old school mechanic with an alignment rack. So he will be busy in the near future. Pulling the headers now, as I cant stand seeing all the rust. A wire brush and some VHT, and they will be the best looking part of the car. :p

Good lookin' '55 Ed!! Got to agree with the others, enjoy the drive til you get all the wanted parts accumulated, then knock it down.

Nice ride. Looks like you could have some king pin issues. Otherwise, it's got a real kool vibe. Good luck with it.

I am not sure who made the roll bar. Have not found any markings or stamps on it. One of the planned changes is to put in a 4 point cage.

I agree, about the king pins. Will be checking it out as soon as I get another heater in the garage. Been to darn cold the past few weeks.

The only thing better would be 10 or 20 other Gassers right behind me.

Nice car Ed !1 im here in illinois also .

You dont see to many hardtops as gassers. I have some polaroids from roughly 15 years ago of a hardtop gasser that was along side of highway 29 south of springfield for sale at an old ran down gas station. radiused , axled and a blue fiberglass tilt nose. it was for sale for 2000 . Man i wish i had the money back then but i was still a sophmore in high school.
