Thanks for posting. No doubt that is one of the finest 57's I have ever seen. It is so tastefully done. Lots of $$$$.

Simply gorgeous.
I did notice one uncomfortable boil pot on that rear brake line run. Brake fluid doesn’t circulate, thus even more susceptible to the heat from that close exhaust than a fuel line.

Yep, factory dual exhaust cars had the fuel and brake lines outside of the frame. Beautiful car... Al

A beautiful car, no doubt, but while we're picking it to pieces, isn't the panhard bar heim joints going the wrong direction? I know they pivot some in all directions, but seems like they would bind up sideways during suspension travel.

Poor fitting hood bar. Passenger rear bumper end too low.

Yes, that brake line does look very close to the exhaust pipe. With some pre-planning of the brake line routing and with the proper bends in the exhaust pipe, it could have easily been avoided.

Acardon, that is a diagonal link, not a panhard bar. I have a diagonal link on mine. Mine goes the opposite angle, but I don't think it matters.

Its the right color for sure.:congrats::shakehands::):bowtier:

The car is even more impressive in person.
