He got this Ghia from a guy who had rescued it from the bone yard. He like the car’s patina so much he decided to saved it, but as a creative soul he couldn’t resist added a few of his personal touches to the exterior and interior. He then slammed this sled with no bags or juice, just a static drop! When asked if he was finished with it, his response was” you’re never done”…but why is it so low?, “Because I have to live up to my nickname!” Re-bodied with a 1961 body onto the 1968 chassis with a 8″ narrowed front beam with adjusters and 21/2′ drop spindles.
