The Jalopy Journal
Bringing this back, I may use your steering ideas in the future.
EXACTLY! It's not about who's the fastest, it's who's more historical.
I was about to back you up until I saw the Willwood Disk brakes. 1977. Sorry, NOT period correct.
You are right, especially the "T.V. hot rodders"
Amazing what can be done with skill and the right tools.
Great photos, probably saw them before but old man syndrome is kicking in.
Looks like the front framerail is "Z"d a little bit.
I haven't been around here much lately, this is a good reason to come back...
Nice, I would not have guessed that those were radials.
That was 13 years ago...
Just talked to Oakie Joe, he did a couple axles for me about 12 years ago. He's 80 and still at it! He works with Sid over at droppedaxles.com and...
Are you sure you can't make it fit? I know I've seen tri 5 Chevies with blowers under the hood. maybe custom motor mounts?
MORE PICS PLEASE!!
That is one of the coolest 'Vairs so far...
No but I like them!!!
Nearly four grand for 140 H.P., good reason for a V8 swap!
Where did you get the wheels? How's the quality?
Is this car still around?
I thought I had a picture of it right before I sold it, I don't.[ATTACH]
I sold this to Brian Bobb about ten years ago, I don't know what hapened to the truck or Brian....
It's gone now?
How did you lock the steering, or do all four steer like a monster truck ;)?
That's what I figured. What mods did you make? Are they outlined here somewhere, and I missed them? This is, after all, a twelve(!) year old thread...
What transaxle are you using?
Photobucket still doing weird stuff...
I have since replaced my stock wheels with, I believe they are, 15 x 8-1/2" Torq-Thrust copies in the rear, and 15x6 real American Racing up...
That looks like an eariler body...like 1925 or older. Gary's looks to be a 1926 or '27.
The front doors are too short, and the rear quarters are too long, asthetically. Just don't look right.
