Sweet Car! love it!
Thanks Baron! You, Jim (Shakey Puddin), and Sam (Dragrcr50) have been a huge help by putting up some great posts and answering all my questions I have sent to you guys!
Heres one ive just painted..,,the customer which happens to be a frend of mine asked for a small lip radiust arch,.plus a total colour change to black...american 200s wheels will be on once i get some front tires,.
oh ya... that sits nice.
ahhhhh no why has Dennis decided to do it black i loved it burgundy even with me and my old mans wonky wheel arches haha
here is mine, I have alot of work to do
Might be some work, but it looks real solid.
This is my all time favorite 55. It screams Street Fighter even sitting still
Looks like a nice,rust-free car to start with. Enjoy the build.
real solid rust wise but i found that the car was in alot of accidents
Just broken in then..
its fairly solid rust wise but i uncovered alot of accidents
If you look closely you can see the transverse spring shackles, and mounts welded to the axle... they are chrome shackles.
I have the thread going. Here is a link.
Here is mine not quite finished but getting close.
haha a little more broken in than i was hoping for
hey guys i have had this old gasser for about 10 years i had a dyers blown 427 in it but sold the engine to a bud for his project i now have it set up with a wild 331 w/ old crane massaged heads solid lifters and an offy 4x2 i should have it done for the gasser gangs reunion in leichester NY 2011
that looks awsome i cant wait to see it
I think it meets all the rules for B/GS although it doesn't look like a modern traditional "gasser". Last time I ran it at the strip it went 11.25 at 122
i think i've got your old door panels in this heap...
chief"s car club
Not totally a gasser but tryin to get it set up
Lookin to get front end raise about 4"
