Well I just picked up a '68 Square. Was up on Craigslist for a bit, over in Vancouver and I snagged it. Bit of an incomplete resto project that I'll daily for the next while!
It's slammed. Not sure of the differences between front beams and have been on a steep learning curve for the last few weeks about other stuff...
It's not my first project on air, I did my '56 Buick myself and it worked great, but the easy part was that I was just replacing coils with bags, Easy Peasy...
The Torsion bar setup in these I'm just not familiar with yet, so I don't know really where to start, and I'm not interested in reinventing the wheel on it either.

SO, Anyone have any experience bagging one of these that can lend some know how?

Air shocks in the front would be easy but isn't something I will do...

check out Punch Drunk Customs. They have the T3 air-ride market cornered.

T3's are one of the easiest ACVW's to lower.

better to catch it before you fire off $$

the design is super simple. What about building one yourself?
