I like the way it is starting to look. What size are the rims and tires you have on it.
Thinking about using the same ones.

I found a LOT of good info here in the topics as i was building the car.
Since i wanted the Nostalgic and period correct look.I used the Cragar SS but the tire size choices were limited since the car was not tubed back then.

The fronts are 15 x 4 with 155/80/15 BFG
The rears are 15x8 with 235/60/15 BFG
Thanks

it is a 1974 and was not uncommon for people to swap the frt ends.
But the real reason was 74 was the last year for Motion Cars as the EPA shut them down in 75...
