Excellent ride. From the first pic to the second in Helen it appears to sit lower than normal even with you guys in it, is it lowered? Lookin' good.

Not lowered yet, however I think the front looks a little lower now than before also. I noticed some squeaks coming from the front end a few days ago and it seems that it sits lower after that.

Just thought I would post this for those wondering about the 39coupe handle.

This is my other baby, 1939 Chevy Business Coupe, all OG except for the bucket seats, I have the OG bench to put back in. OG engine, everything works, runs and drives nice.

Good looking ride. You don't see alot of old Chevys that are still stock.

I know this is in reverse but I just dug up these pics from when I first brought the '65 home. Not bad for $800.

Looks great. A complete change of look. A little wider tire at about the same height as the 135 is a 175/65/15
