You have every right to be proud, It looks great! Do you mind sharing info about the rear wheels? Make, width, and backspacing?

I’m not sure about back spacing,I had jc whitney wheel adapters with 15” appliance wheel that came off my 73 tbird and 205 70 15 tires.I never had any issues with them so when I got my new cragar wheels I got 15”x7” on 215 78 15 cooper cobra tires.they fit really nice without rubbing so I’m very happy with them.

Looks great. Nice work. Must be excited now that its back on the Road. I do Notice the back is higher than the Front.  That probably helps Tire clearance at the Rear. What is the Measurement (Inches) between bottom of the Frame at the front Leaf Spring Bracket and level Ground?.

Not sure where you are talking about but I reversed the back shackles years ago to give it that look .years ago( late 60’s - early 70’s) that was the style,I still think it looks cool raised up in the back. I guess I’m reliving my youth again but like music,it still is cool.

OK That Answers my Question with reversed Shackles. That would give a little more Room for wider Tires, Wasn't sure if You had added a Leaf or 2 maybe? Again nice Job on the Car.

Thanks. That makes it about 5-6 Inches Higher than Stock . Creates more room for wider Tires and Rims.
