About “Miraclewhip”

I picked this car up from an older gentlman and his son, who had owned the car the previous 20 years, among a few other cars. They worked on this car for years, inside and out they made this car like new, except for a crack in the front dash and a ding in the rear bumper(shop accident). The car has 57,000 original miles. It had sat for years prior to the old gentleman purchasing it, so it needed some work. They had the tranny and engine rebuilt when it had about 32,000 miles, shortly after purchasing it. Over the years included a new interior, paint, undercoating, suspension, you name it.

I have had this car for about 2 years, I have replaced the rear dash, which had deteriorated over the years. I cut a new panel, and wrapped it in brown leather to match the paint, along with new Infiinity speakers, the front dash is currently on order, and will also be painted to match the exterior paint, I have also wrapped the upper door panels in matching brown leather, and painted the lower door panels white, also replacing the rubber arm rest on the door with real wood, the B pillars will also be wrapped in brown leather, and the remaining trim painted white, to match the exterior, I have yet to decide to reupholster the seats in white leather with brown piping or brown leather with white piping, suggestions welcome. I have also tinted the windows to 20% and installed HID headlamps, which are amazing, 3000k bulbs, which turn night into day. I plan on spending some time on the engine, increasing the horspower from 190 to the mid 400's, and advice would be appreciated, thanks.

Also just added the dual exhaust with rectangle tips, looks and sounds mean.

More pics coming soon, of the interior in progress.
