Good Job Alex. the car looks fantastic. Congrats on the wedding, I am jealous you could use your car in your wedding as I was not able to get mine back from the shop in time.

you car looks really really good. Your chrome is @#%! flawless. it makes me think I need to redo my bumpers!!

Great result. Enjoy that car, you've done well there.

Best,
Omar

Great job on the project. It looks amazing. Hopefully i can get mine there one day.I like the picture with the caddy. Those are mt two favorite cars of all times, an early 60's Lincoln and the '59 caddy. Congrats.

I really like the way your tires and stance look. Can you please post a close up of your wheels and info about them and any info on the suspension. Thanks

Hi Wildcar,

Sorry for late reply. Shocks are original standards from Rockauto. Car rear side looks higher because the top is out.

Hi everybody,

Here you are some new pics taken last weekend at Auto Retro Exhibition in Malaga.
Don´t know if this is the right thread for pics (considering project is not finished), please let me know which thread is for pictures only.
Anyway I hope you like them.
I am working on the car again.
The 59´s Tbird behind The Continental belongs to a friend that is helping me with top operating problem.
I am still restoring all those non easy to find wheatherstrips and rubbers.
Need to figure out how to reinstall the cruise control again, and check out if it works or not.
Car is driving well now and I am very happy. Last 30 months were worthy.

Alex

Beautiful car! These cars garner lots of attention here in Estados Unidos, but I can only imagine how unique it must be in Espana!
Best to you, Sal
