'63 CDV Restomod on Iron Resurrection on Velocity Channel

I just watched an episode of a show called Iron Resurrection on Velocity Channel. They did a restomod on a pretty clean survivor '63 CDV for a customer. They did an LS3 swap, air ride, complete rechrome and custom paint, etc. It came out very nice and they are real pros but I would hate to be faced with the bill for all that.See More

Haven't been here for a while and looking for some parts

Posted on March 30, 2013 at 1:06pm 3 Comments

Hello,

I was a member sometime back when the format was different. I reproduce the door pull courtesy light lenses used in the '63 coupes. I sold a few to members back then and received a few requests for the rear lenses. I would like to start doing those now but need to get a pair of the lamp housings they fit into. If it is alright I would offer them for sale here. I try to sell them at a price that works for both me and the buyer. I am not trying to get rich, just make a…

Original 64 Color sanded and buffed out

Posted by Norman Silverman on November 10, 2018 at 9:05pm 14 Comments

I finally got the car back from the body shop, where they color sanded and polished it out. I am literally blown away by the result! Now, it looks great from 2 feet but if you look REALLY CLOSE you can see that the paint is not as glossy as it should be, but Sothe end result is much better than what I started with. The interior is still original.
