Looks great, Mark! Can't wait to see Smurf II running around in its new incarnation. It'll be a good opportunity for someone to own a vintage restomod without putting out the huge $$$ for a Singer. Hope it stays local.

She does look great! Hey Mark, was wondering what you are going to do with the suspension? Thanks for allowing us to tag along :beerchug:

My plan is to preserve the "teeth" the car has and make sure it can run just as fast as it ever has. I did take out the cage and went from rear coilovers back to 33mm rear torsion bars like the car ran with most of its life. It might loose a second or so at Big Willow but that's about it. Probably wont be out there anytime soon though. I am working with a possible local buyer that is very interested. I always like the chance to buy it back one more time.
