71 Challenger Convertible Resto Help

Hi Guys,

I am getting ready to remove the K-member from my 71 Challenger convertible and want to construct something with wheels to put under the front so I can move it around. I'm guessing I would attach it to the bumper bolt holes somehow. I only need it for the front the real axle is still in and I have regular dollies under them. This questions isn't only a Mopar question, any one can chime in if that have a suggestion.

What I am looking for is pictures of creative ideas that I can use. I appreciate it very much.

I wouldn't make something that attached at the front bumper.....I would think without the "K" member it, lifting at the front like that would put a lot of stress on the body. I would be more inclined to have something further back, say at the firewall.

Yeah that k member is for strength. I would think you could make a x member to bolt where the k member would go with a dolley like they use on a boat trailer . that way you could bolt it on to the k member area and raise it and wheel it around and lower it yada yada yada. iwould use a pretty heavy duty one you dont want to drop that baby
