It is based around the mid to late 60s period and has a 427 chevy with a powerglide. I based it on this era as i believe it would have been race legal to run an unblown big block. It will be a rolling chassis by the end of September with a straight tube front axle and a ford 9 inch bringing up the rear, all on coil overs. The motor as i said before is a 427 tall deck chevy and has a TR2X tunnel ram with dual
quads. I have retained the stock frame rail's which i have fully boxed and am installing a full cage as we speak ( just having a cup of tea and a quick surf then i'll be back in the garage ) Wheel's and tires are 10 x 15 200s daisy mag's on the rear which i brought in from Canada because they are original old item's, the front's will be wheel Vintiques gasser alloy's which are based on Halibrand kidney bean's.
Well i've got to get on with it now, i'll put some pic'c on, hope you like them. Thanks Martin.
thats cool, i have just finished restoring a 49 that was a 60s gasser, i have a small block in mine that sit lower and farther back. its all piriod correct with a 65 corvette engine highly modified. all vintage speed parts. good thing you boxed the frame otherwise you will end up with a pretzel. how far back did you box??? i had to box all the way to the back. i see your front axel is not mounted, i cut the frame right in front of the crank pulley and mounted the front axel in front of that, transverse leaf, corvair steering. these things are way rare over here. welcome to hotrodders.
