Original paint Fontana Grey with the right amount of surface rust, factory sealers and primers. Working door locks too...

What size tires did you put on those cool blue-white/black rims? I am thinking about lowering this '65 for the Swamp Stomp....

Well, on those cool blue-white/black rims (with correct overspray pattern matched Smile ) I wrapped them with 50's up front and 55's out back, but the 55's are coming off. I have some stock 65's I want to put on the back, without the rear being lower the low profile tire just looks goofy with the camber, the 65's (i think) will look much better.

...... need some 55's for your front?

Hey guys. I own the L87 63 now. I was actually at the show, but the car was in the parking lot. I showed up a touch late and did not feel like entering the car. Red cooler on top.

This 65 was a great deal yesterday. Did it end up selling?

I did see your car outside the fence, I don't think it cost anything extra to park inside, that way us in the swap area can check it out. Looked good though.

My '65 did not sell, I fell short on time to get it cleaned up and finish some things that it needed. Oh well, I will try on CL or The Samba and see what happens.

Shoot, I wish I would have known that...I would have brought it in. I did not feel like paying up for 3 hours of show left.

Good luck on the 65, I really dig it Cool
