Well I am starting a new project. My last one was a heavy fast street car (1990 9c1 caprice police car, BBC 505, 4000lbs 10:94 @124.5 1/4 pump gas and a 150 nos hit) The caprice is for sale. My new project will be light and fast (I hope) the base car is a $200.00 1979 chevette 2door basic outline as follows,ADD Rover 4 Litre aluminum v8, Wipple supercharger, 200R4 trans and cj5 Dana 44 rear end. I have already sorced a front brake upgrade (1986 Fiero front calipers, bracket and rotor, bolt on affair very easy!)
Tonight i started to strip the interior out to get started. Wow was that nasty! The other night i welded up the lower hinge on the drivers door so now it opens and closes with out the door dropping down. I didnt find any treasures hidden under the carpet, just the rust hole in the drivers side floor, not too bad.
Sweet huh?? the first picture has the heads for the new motor in the back. The second is a front shot before i stared taking it apart, notice the layers of carpet. The third is an overall shot of the car, notice it has 5 lug fiero wheels on the front along with the brakes.
Removed the engine tonight, pretty easy and a little greasy! Good running engine trans and rear end now for sale! I forget just how light these cars are! after pulling the engine and trans i can easly lift one side of it!
