Love it!! What frame did you use?
Thanks for the kind words.
The front half of the frame is a 32 Chevy pickup and the back half is 31 Pontiac. I found some 2.25" rear springs from an 80's Dodge power wagon that were the correct eye to eye. I lowered the front by modifying the axle mounts and putting it above instead of below the springs. I added some springs for the hemi and had the front re-arched some. Here are a couple more pics.
Very nice! I too want to use a Chevy frame.
Building 32 pontiac 5 window. Still on factory frame, but will need some boxing to run BBC and stepped powertrain. Like these cars ...especially with a haircut.
Here is my 31 with a 261 in it back in the 50ts.
tHAT IS A SICK PIC!!!
Yeah that car is sweet!! He has some youtube vids of it running.
These things will put splinters in your butt. Anyone can build a Ford.....It takes a real man to build a Chevy............
Agreed It takes a real hot rodder to build any ride other then a ford
Ya, I was gonna build a 31 Chrysler but the guy I bought it from reneged on the deal and would not accept my $2000.00. So I went back to the original idea. A 31 Chevy. Fords are relatively easy but Chevys are a challenge.
if you want to look at a '32 check my album.
WOW! SWEET!! RIDE! I almost got a 32 body but the owners were weird. I offered $1700.00 for the body they declined and 5 months later they ended up selling it for 1200.?? Didn't even call me and I kept in touch via email every other week form my original offer.
This is my '55 Chevy, a newbie compared to what you guys have! Pulled the original 235 and installed a mild 292 with a built 2004r. Work in progress!
Here is mine that I just picked up.
What did you do to get the T5 to bolt up to the 292. I am working on putting a T5 on my 302 any suggestions on what needs to be done re: adapter to make them fit?
If you have a gm WC T5 out of a Camaro/Firebird it will bolt right up to your 302. Then if you are putting it in a 20/30's car you might need to do a tailshaft swap with an S10 T5 to get the right shifter placement. You can use the search feature and find plenty of info on doing this mod. Hope this helps.
WOW That's nice!! what did ya pay for her!!!
Talked the guy down to 4k!
Nice score there Flyingtiger77!
Can't wait to see it done!
here's my 31 Chevy, I am finally starting to work on the body.
