Post Any Street Beast 34 Coupe builders?

Hello everyone,
I'm building a Street Beasts 34 Ford Coupe, and was wondering if anyone else has done the same and has any advice? I have the Ford 8.8inch rear all detailed out, the 351W/T-5(365 HP) ready to go..Mustang II front end all set...tires/wheels ready...just waiting on delivery of the frame. I'm curious as to brakes( booster and mastercylinder) and steering column to use? Any thoughts would be appreciated. So far, excellent service and great support. E-mail direct at JstCapt@aol.com if you want to chat about your HotRod. Thanks
Dave

Dave,
For a really informative site for Street Beast builders go to http://home.hvc.rr.com/js34ford/main.htm

The owner, Joe Santacroce, has the most comprehensive SB site on the web.
Have fun!

You have my condolences. Do a search in the archives and you'll find plenty of discussions about StreetBeasts. I sincerely hope you are able to finish the car, not everyone is that lucky.

If you noticed in the link, he spent over $28,000 and that didn't include the price of the kit or the body work and paint. And he said "Its just money".

StreatBeast really has a good idea going with the total kit concept. Its just too bad they execute it so poorly that it only barely resembles what its supposed to be. I guess they'd rather go on selling very poor fidelity replicas rather than re-tool and build a high fidelity kit.

I understand from a little research that the company has improved their customer service so that at least most of their customers are getting all the parts needed to finish the kit but, they're still using high pressure sales tactics and mis-representing the skill needed to build the kit. The poor novices that fall into their trap usually wind up in over their heads with predictable results.

When I was shopping for a 34 project, I called Street Beast and asked for a catalog. They bugged me weekly for six months. One time when they called (after i bought my Gibbon 34) I told them I had already bought from Gibbon, and they hung up on me. Never heard another word from them.

Yea,Ill back that up.A freind of mine did a ton of research befor purchasing a glass 41'Willies.He ended up going with an Outlaw body.I guess he told me theres allot of horror stories with the Street Beasts kits.
Good luck though
