Awesome car and a great restoration.
Did it come with the poverty wheels? Also what about the air cleaner? Was the chrome lid an option or had it been lost along the way?

Actually it did come with the small hubcaps and trim rings. I opted to upgrade to rally wheels. The chrome air cleaner lid is standard with the 428CJ non-ram cars. The previous owner did not have the original so he put a blue one on it.

Dang! I was waiting until the end because I could not decide which to vote for, Bill's or John's. Alas, I forgot/was too busy at work (imagine that!) and missed my chance. I could have tied it up!

In any case congrats Jon and as has been said, all worthy cars...
