Got my baby - 66 Town Landau

Hello to all. I recently acquired a exceptional driver; 66 Town Landau. I have to admit that I have been a die hard GM man but am thoroughly impressed with the Bird. The car has some items that need fixing like; none of the windows work, door locks inop, no hot air from heater, the pans under the driver and passenger needs patching, the trunk will need a patch as well. Chrome needs replating and of course a paint job.
The question for this round is "stance", the car sits low in the rear. I plan on putting on new shocks but don't think that will give me the look I am after. I like the raked look, slightly higher in the rear than the front. any advice on how to properly obtain this?

Thanks for the help, DL.

I would suggest helper springs on the rear or have your leaf springs rearched to raise the rear end.
