My 68 coupe

So I'm new to the forum and just wanted to show my 68 coupe. I bought this for 3500 2 years ago and have built this from the ground up... I've done all the body work and repairs in my garage and it's been a pain but is definitely worth it. I'll have more of the restoration photos later I just don't have them on my phone... But this forum ha already helped me out so I appreciate you guys responding to my threads...

Thanks man those wheels are off an 03 billet. They took 1 1/4" spacers to get them to clear the upper control arms... They amazingly don't rub the fenders either...

They are 99-04 bullet wheels. I think they came on the gt's. You can put the 05+ wheels on but I think there is clearance issues. Mine required 1 1/4" spacers in the front, and the backs have none buy prolly should have 3/8". They are harder to turn with cause the tires are so wide, just a heads up. Lol
