The work and time that went into building this Nostalgic 60's Style Gasser is Clearly seen in the Quality of the finished product. The Builder of this Vehicle has had Several Custom Rods featured in Rod+Custom and HOT ROD Magazine and this Vintage Gasser will undoubtedly make its way to a nice magazine feature. The car drives suprisingly well and is a Blast to cruise on the streets. Henry J is Scary Fast!!!! The Motor sounds absolutely Awesome and the Ride is suprisingly nice for a straight axle car. The Interior is actually quite comfortable and although the car looks like its sits a mile high in the front, its very easy to drive and is not much different from driving any other Hot Rod once you use it a few times. Everything on this car has been Custom Built for the most part and the craftmanship is second to none. I Welcome anybody to some and inspect this Cool Henry J Gasser in person. 200 miles on this car since its completion. The car was built to look as though it was used as a Stock Henry J Driver for a few years before being turned into a Drag car. The Builder went through 5 Different Henry J parts cars until he got all of the nicest Original pieces possible to build this car. He bought one car just to get the MINT Original Henry J Alligator Grain Interior Panels. The car has many Original(early 60's to early 70's) and some Reproduction Performance Decals on the Quarter Glass (both sides) which all by themselves are fascinating, a couple are dragstrip decals dated back to 63 & 65. CLEAR 1951 HENRY J TITLE AND AN ORIGINAL 1951 HENRY J OWNERS MANUAL IS IN THE GLOVEBOX. CAR IS READY TO SHIP, HAPPY BIDDING!!
