Hey I know that car! Rode in it at Run to the Coast a few years back. Awesome car!! Wished I had bought it when it went up for sale the first time. You'll have a lot of fun with it...and let me know when you're ready to sell it. lol

I know that car well... I have driven it. Rich Bermea of Road Touring Customs built that car in Gilroy.

It's a fun car with great parts!

Found an old clip of it:

Great looking car, Congrats! Would you happen to have any info on your back seat? Was it bought or built by an upholstery shop? If you've got any additional pics of it, that'd be awesome!
