Welcome Shawn, I use to own a 72 custom like yours a few years ago. It was one of the best cars I have ever owned. Rode and drove great. Although I'm not into the big wheel thing, your car makes me want another one.

My Dad had a '72 convertible. It was red, but it had color matched bumpers and grill. It was a factory A/C, 402 big block car. It was a great cruiser. Good luck with yours. It looks very nice.

Don't listen to me, what do I know? I've only been doing this for 30 years.
