I agree with this completely. I took this same advice (buy three) about two years ago and have never regretted the purchase, although I will say I prefer the $10 grinders over the $15 ones.

Alright then! Moving forward on the Memorial Day weekend. The motor and transmission are gone!

Now I have plenty of time to try and figure out how I'm going to do the suspension???

Any ideas?

Please keep in mind that it is my intention to use about 40" tires (commercial semis) on the back AND front so the suspension will be up front and center. Yes, I said 40" tires and I'd like the body no more than 6" from the floor. Should look ridiculous.

Well folks, Im going to pick up an SS 396 (bored to 412?) for the project tomorrow!!! Wish me luck. The autoshop at the college down the street just bored it and cleaned it all up now I reap the benefits.

It should be interesting trying to fit the block inside the back of an '05 VW Beetle for transportation... aaaand queue the laughter

Excellent advice on scrapping the engine. On my 48 International pickup/hot rod on a 96 Dakota chassis, I have scrapped and Ebayed all the leftover parts to the point of making a profit over what I paid for the two trucks. Free project...no, the pretty things keep costing more and more!
