Gassers
 
Anybody have any Gassers out there? I'm building one out of my '69 Chev C-10, really wanted a Willys, but have yet to win the Fl. lottery.

Just go buy this and DRIVE !!! 28k will bring it home and it's in Lake City FL... I have talked with him a lot and was very near to going there to see it but I'm a few k short of the price and it's not my ideal set up.

Yea, thats what I'm talking about,is that '40 what thay call a business coupe? My '69 has been with for about 30yrs, I have a pic of it in my file,could'nt get them to load up here. Anyway I've built or upgraded every thing I own and drive, thats where I find the fun in building them.

Most of them were 2 person business coupes. This particular car has the fuel filler in the right rear fender and was originally a rather rare 4 passenger coupe. It had 2 opposing fold down jump seats, like an extended cab S10. He has sent me a number of pics and you couldn't build it for nearly twice the price. If I had the funds, I would drive down and see it in person.

Good deal, love the 210s. What type of steering setup did ya use, did the stock '55 box work w/cross steer?

steering
 
im planning on using a flaming river plain jane steering column , I have a manual S-10 steering box from another project with a double u joint solid steering conection shaft that has a 1" D end that goes to the column. i mocked up the steering box when i was figuring the lenghth for the column it looks close to what i can use .

chevota'54 10-07-2012 06:46 PM

A S-10 box? Tradtional steering?Cant picture what that box looks like. I've got a box off a Astro I was thinkin about, came close to buying a box off a '66 Nova at the swap meet today,55bucs, but mount seem to low. I think a box off a '55 sedan is gonna be my best bet for cross steer.

s10 box

This is a pic of the manual S-10 box and steering shaft with the universals. This will mount onto the inside of the frrame rails I need to make a custom steel plate to bolt it to then to the frame rail i may have to change the small arm on the box but wont know for sure till i get the steering column mounted i mocked it up awhile ago with the old stock column and it looks like it should work , my orig plan was to buy a vega steering box but fig i would try to make do with what i had laying around 1st.

chevota'54 10-07-2012 10:29 PM

I gotcha' ya. I'm gonna hav'ta mount mine on the outside. Where I welded the spring hangers was right where the stock box was bolted to. at first I thought I could use trad. steering til I found out more about bump steer,you think a '55 style box about mid spring crossed over to the pass. side would be fairly smooth?

BOBCRMAN@aol.com 10-07-2012 10:40 PM

I ended up using a Ford Mustang type box for my straight axle cross steer. Ford box puts the pitman arm further down to relieve the angle on the steering rod. See photo in my file.

Im not sure ? when I got my car it had the stock box the steering shaft wouldnt come out plus it had a ton of slop in it so i junked it it seemed bigger then what my s10 one is.

Talkin to my older brother,seems like those S-10 manual boxs are sought after, everybody talks about the Vega & corvar boxs,but I dont see it.
