    Just went back through here but couldn't find what you used for rear springs. The stance looks great!

    I know some people have just replaced the buckets with Procar seats, they look close to stock but sit so much better and about $500 a pair from Jeg's etc. It's another option.

    THREAD UPDATE Some of the purist wont like this I had a 65 GS when I was 15 bought it 4 speed car also .I had a Panasonic 8 track in it .So I found an NOS one (Same One I had in HS) so I ended up installing it stealth on the speakers nothing was cut. Sounds Great .Also ended up installing a shroud due to at idle stopped in hot weather it would creep up the temperature .Doing a 33 Factory Five car now .My 65 has been a real fun car .Got the body panels aligned better recently also Got to See Tom Petty last Summer RIP

    Out of all my Classic cars? I must say I had the most fun with my 65's! Like you I had a thin pillar coupe in H.S. the one in my avatar, I did find a four speed 65 later in my life and did a frame off resto! had a ball with that one and my last one was a 65 GS convertible astro blue w/ white interior ; but all in all the most fun were the 65's
    Enjoyed your clips of the resto and the finished product ! both outstanding ! and a beautiful 65 GS indeed :)
