  3. Hot Rod Art
    Here's a full-size '65 Chevy panel delivery truck edited into a lower profile version inspired by the popular solid panel Sedan Delivery vehicles. A sedan delivery, commonly called a delivery in American English and a car derived van in British English, is a two-door station wagon with driver...
  4. Engine
    I just wanna first say hello to everyone as I'm new to the forum. I've searched around and found a little info here and their, but felt I still should just post and ask. My daily driver is a 1984 Chevy Caprice Classic Wagon. Stock. 4100lbs. Computer Command Control QJet 305 sbc. 700R4...
  5. Wreck!

    Heres a photo of the wrecked car. A 9x Nissan Exterra slammed into it at about 45 mph. ***** "didn't see it". 7:30 am, no other car for 1/4 mile, and it's bright freaking blue!! Not looking, obviously. Insurance paid off $9,000 after I complained to the state insurance commision. They firs
  6. The one before flames..

    This is the car I built in 1998. I put a 4.0L in first, then built a 4.6L a year later. Car was wrecked in summer of 2002 (next photo). This is the same car as the flamed one, same body type anyway, but everyone says flamed one is 100% better. Only outward difference is the flames and wheels. These
  7. Finished Rear View

    Here's a rear view of the finished car. This car had no backup lights, just snap in covers in the bumper. I put a spare set of front turn signals in and wired them as rear turn signals. Front and rear bumpers are the same stamping, just different bolt hole locations (so they can't be easily swapped)
  8. Finished car

    The finished car. The flames really set it off! The Weld Draglite wheels were a necessity -- the only ones I could get with enough offset for the Jag axle -- 5" offset on 7" wheels. Didn't have to narrow the Jag, and the wheel pattern is both 5x4.5 and 5x4.75 on the wheels. AMC uses 5x4.5,
  9. Engine

    This is the 4.6L in-line six. This photo is from my previous car, new car has same engine but compartment is correctly (for AMCs) painted body color, not black. Basically it is a 1989 Jeep 4.0L with a 1974 258 (4.2L) crankshaft and rods. The 4.0 has a larger bore than a 258, the 258 a longer stroke
  10. Jag axle in car

    Here's the axle in the car. Man does it look (and ride and handle) good!! Just like it belongs. I had to raise the tranny mount to get the driveshaft angle right.
  11. Jag axle ready to install

    Did I mention the Jaguar rear axle? It came from an 86 XJ6. Got the core for $100, needed new bearing in the outer housing on one side, so replaced bearings in both sides. Also replaced all seals, brake rotors, and one caliper (other received a kit). Then I had to replace the gears -- standard was 2
  12. What I started with..

    This is the car as it was when I first got it. Pretty solid, just a "little" surface rust and a couple small places in the underhood area that all AMCs suffer from. The tailgate had enough leaves and crap in it from a rotted rear window seal that the bottom of it was rusted out, but the do
