Dave Stuckey built this 65 Catalina full custom around 1968. He sold it in 1972 and it left Kansas. I tracked it down about 10 years ago but the owner didn't want to sell it. He contacted me in 2013 and I bought it. I've been in the process of rebuilding. I've rebuilt the entire drive line and suspension, new interior, new wiring and new glass..... the list goes on and on and on. The car was in very bad shape when I got it. Now I'm down to body and paint. Larry Wolfe

I've seen it in yellow several times. I sure like the new color a whole lot more. Smile

X3 wow that colour does show the contours in better contrast than the lighter tone. You see a lot of 50s cars with body mods but not nearly as many from the 60s

I think I'll get to see that car this summer. I hope it's a bright clear day to see all the magic of a well done candy. Smile

Stunning, or at least very easy to look at. Real nice car.

Just noticed something on the car.

I constantly live in fear of law enforcement, mainly I don't go out of my way to follow the rules.

But some instances I do try and avoid unnecessary confrontation.

I noticed on Larry's car above and several others of my peers seem to be painting their vintage car tags to match the paint on the car.

Heh, heh, just seems to me to be 'asking for it' if driven much, but maybe most cops now adays are youngsters who have no idea what the original tag colors were.
