Re: 1965 Chevelle SS frame off, pro touring. CA

Thank you.

Just had the body shop foam pad and polish my 65 SS. I did not think the paint could get any deeper, but it did.
Since pictures added deluxe retractable front seat belts, matching rear set belts.
Ring Brothers billet hood stops.
Some current pictures.

Re: 1965 Chevelle SS frame off, pro touring. CA

couple questions;

are you using an early narrower 12 bolt, or a later one?

what are the dimensions of the wheels and tires? (BS, etc.)

thanks
