    My coupe....finally I found it's history around the 1966 mark.
    There is an article in the "Jammin Gears" magazine, issue #48, page 60& 61.
    It was built by Paul Larsen, an Auckland rodder.
    Issue #50 has another article about it..pages 50, 51 & 52....
    Anyways my house & shed are basically sorted so now I am starting on this project.
    Just a basic old hiboy A coupe on Model A rails with 350(Lt1)/p-glide & 9" ass.
    Included are a few pics of it..
    I will add pics as I go along...(theory)
