Love the progress you have made, incredible. The only thing that bugs me is the trim molding on the driver side does not align, passenger side molding is spot on.

I suspect that the yellow fender was a replacement, and is from a different year Lark, and so the trim is different.

WOW, How have I not seen this until today? Coolest home made build idea I have ever seen. Gonna be watching this.

Around 2010 or so, I went to one of the cruise nights in Golden CO. There was a guy there that did something similar to this with GTO's. He bought a modern GTO that had been in an accident and removed the body. The interior frame and drive train were unharmed. He then used the body from a 66 and narrowed and shortened it to fit the modern frame. Unless you see a lot of old pontiacs, you would never notice the difference in the body. I assume he did the same thing you did to narrow and shorten it. Awesome work, Im a fan of all things human powered. This is the Ultimate Rat Rod Bike

Im in trouble now. While walking back from the mailbox, I spotted a Nash Metropolitan in the neighborhood. Had to walk that way just to check it out. It was a real nice one And at first I was admiring how detailed it was. But then I found myself studying it as to how I could cut it up and make a velomobile out of it. Im sure Im not the only one around that has had thoughts like this since seeing your project. I think you started something big In the custom world. There are many pedal powered vehicles available but nothing like this

A Metropolitan was my first choice of car, but the seller backed out last minute. I thought it would work well.
