I still have a relatively short list of "to do's", but the '61 is getting
ever-so-close to being complete. Since I last posted pictures,
I have mounted the newly chromed grill and bumpers, mounted
the valence panels, replaced the wheels and tires,
and a completed several less obvious tasks including replacing
the fuel tank.
When I set out to do this project, my goal was to build a cool cruiser
that would be comfortable to drive on long trips like the Power Tour,
have plenty of power, get good fuel mileage, and be as trouble-free
and dependable possible. It had to be something unique,
something you don't see at every local cruise night or car show.
I feel the flat-top Biscayne fits that restriction very well.
I wanted to update the car with the color, stance, and wheels and tires,
but without going too over-the-top.
I have had a blast restoring it, but I am sooooo ready to get it on the road!!
