The hood was shaved and fit with louvers for extra ventilation and appearance. The grille shell was reshaped and fit with 1955 Chevrolet chrome mesh. The side trim was also taken from a 1955 Chevrolet. The headlights were frenched and the bumper guards were removed. The rear fenders were massaged to fit a set of 1956 Chrysler taillights.
