Spent a few hours cleaning 55 years of dirt and grime from the inside the engine compartment and under the hood.

I swapped positions in the garage to get it back up on the lift and snapped this picture while it was outside. I’m really digging the wheel/tire combination along with the paint & roof color on this car.

I see you got rid of the ugly tailpipe extensions.
What's on it now?

I'm thinking of a new Ice Cream flavour; Hemi Vanilla. Something like French Vanilla, but with big nuts in it!

The glass packs are gone too. I installed repro factory mufflers and stock turn-down tailpipes.

Boy, that’s looking good under hood. Whose mufflers/tailpipes did you go with? The two tailpipes on my car seem mismatched as one terminates about 2-1/2 to 3“ further from the bumper and I may replace them.

Glad you took this picture, to my old eyes I thought the pictures showed a white leaning towards XX1 and I knew it wasn’t.

I got them from Accurate.
