I traded my clone for a real Superbird.  I still have the title for the Clone and want to help sell it for the gentleman I traded it too.  He has some health issues and wants to sell.  I build the car so please contact me with any questions.  Car is #1 tribute.  Thanks  John  724-290-0362  Graybo@zoominternet.net

Nice looking build.

A couple quick questions:

Who made the Superbird reproduction parts?
The headlight actuators are they pneumatic or electric?
The wing, OEM, fiberglass or aluminum reproduction? Are there support brackets in the trunk under the fenders?
Trunk hing stops appear to be welded onto the hing arm as opposed to the hing body correct?
The hoses running between the starter and the block, I am assuming that they are transmission cooling lines correct?
Rear window and trim what is it from?

Again it is a great looking recreation.

Sincerely Vic

Vic,  Nose cone and wing by Ted Janek. The hollow wing uprights were reinforced and filled with fiber and rosin for strength.  All headlight buckets,  Z brackets, frame braces, Latch tray are all steel from Erik Nelson. 

Headlight operate electrically from a Porsche headlight motor on a rod that operates both lights.
 
Wing washers are welded into the underside of the quarter as original and it does have wing braces to floor.

You are correct about the trunk stops location.

Those are tranny lines that run to a hidden cooler inside the nose.

Rear window and trim is also Janek.  Very expensive glass and trim I might add. LOL.
