Mat, I am thoroughly enjoying this build. Great work man!
I'm glad to see those UPAC parts working out so good, I am going to have to use them...
Mat, Thanks for the kudos. This is looking like a mean mofo. Judging off your avatar, you are going to have another monster like your truck.
3" chopped deluxe stanchions and frame. Lean it back for mean, flop it up for that church boy look.
57 chevrolet. Don't you have enough f100's? :D

Getting the profile dialed in
Starting to look real good.
Make sure both...
Not much progress to report. In a stroke of wisdom, I threw away about 11" of the inner door top structure last year. So I spent some time...
The cross ram engine is a 355", flat tops, Howards Hydraulic cam, ported GM bowtie heads, HS roller rockers, M/T intake, 660 center squirters,...
As stated before, the M/T cross ram does have a balance tube.
I ran one on my 32 for quite a while both on the street and at the track. Works...
New transmission setup for the coupe! We set the car up with a turbo 400 that was going to be a full manual reverse valve body deal. Now it just...
Looking mean Marty!
What size tire are you going to run on the rear?
Thats a little odd, still works fine for me. Lets try it again.
Working on getting the inner door structure chopped and fit to the skin. These doors are pretty light!
Also got the bear jaw or claw??? latch working on the drivers side. Sure shuts easy compared to the originals I've closed in the past. First...
Rechopped the door top for the 10th or 20th time. Finally settled on a profile that is cohesive with the driprail.
I used a piece of 1/8" lauan plywood for the top in my 32. A thin piece of padding and then the original type grained vinyl. I painted the lauan...
What's the point of owning a hot rod if you don't drive it like one???
Here's a video of my 32 doing its...
Thats asking a lot Marty! :D
I work way too slow, but stranger things have happened.
If it works out, we would love to pit by you.
I saw it's a 2...
The door bottoms swooped out quite a bit, which I have seen on some 33-34's. It's not really a big deal, but I wanted to try and improve it....
Fixing, straightening and making the passenger door fit in its hole.
Repairing the lower inner panel and tying both jams together again, getting...
Maybe if Dale adds a 1/8th or 1/4 mile to the event.
I'm going to drag this thread back from the dead. After a long "storage" period, dad and I are back on the coupe! Here's to hoping we can stay...
Its a 383 sbc.
I run a Isky solid with direct lube lifters in my 32. With good valvetrain parts, I only adjust them when I feel sorry for it. They never move....
That is correct. Wish I could find a 3w body.
Brought home this roundy round body. Will be eventually mated to this old drag chassis.

Can't wait Dale! Looks like that distillery has some good eatin'.
I did these for my 32 sedan. Dash and kick panels. I prefer 50% overlap horizontal and vertical. 1" cratex
If you want to spend the entire day...
