de suspension. Top is chopped 2 3/4 inches front and 3 1/2 inches rear, I used a 1953 Buick Skylark windshield when the chop was done, so no cutting of the windshield glass was needed. The headlights were frenched using 1953 Mercury rings and the grille is a 1952 Chevrolet horizontal bar with Gem Accessory teeth (sold in the 1950's for 1952 Chevrolets), I made my own parking lights from plastic. Front bumper has been smoothed with the stock parking light mounting bosses removed. The deck lid is from a 1950 Buick which is rounder than the stock 1952 lid and the taillights are frenched-in Lee Custom lenses for a 1954 Chevrolet. Rear bumper is a combination of 1955 Pontiac and 1952 Buick Special. I installed a 455 Buick engine and 400 turbo transmission. The front bucket seats are 1965 Pontiac GTO seats with the corners rounded before upholstery, I made my own center console and smoothed the stock dashboard. The car is a pleasure to drive and I have been driving it for 9 years.
