Post Low cost Gasser

Hi i am a 50 year old Hot rodder Who put this on hold for 26 years to Have a house Wife and 3 kids. I sold my last 66 Biscayne 427 for 1500.00 back in 1978. I am still sick over this!!!!!
I want to Build a low cost small Block gasser style. I am looking at falcon Body's now. Seems like i can get a clean one for 1000.00 to 2000.00 . Forget the Chevy novas prices are out of control.
Anyway My plain calls for a low buck straight ax. and a 9" Rear. I would find a old 289 with a C4. I would add some fender well Headers , an old sun tach. some low cost seats and a quick simple white paint job. I would run steel wheels ect. This project would be simple, clean and cost around 5000.00. I would end up with a early 60's gasser look hot Rod. PS where can I get a straight ax for a falcon. ecnoline??? Bill On Long Island:

Welcome. Being new to the site, you need to be sure to read the "Read Me' posts at the beginning of each forum. The ones here for example recommend that you just post a general introduction here and post tech questions in the appropriate tech forum, Suspension - Brakes - Steering in this case. This will give you the best chance for a good answer.

Also, this topic has been covered in several threads in detail so do a search in the board and you should find all the info you need.
