Nice build. Great to see something really different. Subscribed.
Here is a couple pic I been saving just because...From South America..May be 6L powered..
Had to read this entire thread
I'm doing a 62 Pontiac Fireball Roberts car but even the original was just paint and a cage compared to this
Can't wait to see it lettered
Thanks Dexter. Looking forward to seeing your Pontiac. I should have a few more progress pictures up soon.
Can't wait, I love the way your building the car.
Looks right, sits right and the powertrain is right on.
Lookin brutal but when I saw the title I was really hoping you were going with a sixties style construction. Should be a vicious little street machine when done.
Got quite a bit of work done over the last several weeks...just not much to show for it. The undercarriage has been seam-sealed and painted and I am now putting the suspension bits back on so I can roll it around. The body comes next starting with paint stripping. It may be a while before I have any more pictures to post.
really digging this build nash, have always loved the race car for the street approach to building , keep the updates coming , that falcon is KILLER!!!
This is a way cool build. sUBSCRIBED
hey Tom - painted parts lookin slicker than a fish'es dick LOL ! Glad to see your gettin a jump on the details, weather here is still colder than a step mother's heart ! hovering around 35 to 45 degrees f, just sucks ! you are having fun now ,eh ? tintop
Sucks indeed! I don't miss that at all.
Then you ought to love this one because that is NOT what he is doing. He is building a fresh car that is "street purpose" built but race car inspired. Gotta
love a guy that takes "your" preferences into account with his build when he doesn't even know you.
This is going to be a killer build needless to say I have bookmarked it!!
Do you have room for another "I really, really like what you have done here" post? Very nice all around, the ingenuity, build quality and well thought out approach.
I had a '63 Sprint for several years and had seriously considered a similar approach, though more in the manner of a Holman Moody style road racer. However, I recently sold that car as I have a full enough plate as it is.
In any case, I am thoroughly enjoying your build and look forward to seeing the finished product. Subscribed!
Any new pictures to share on your progress?
I haven't been really good at taking pictures so I will try to get some and post. I have the suspension back under the car and I'm waiting to media blast the body. After looking at the progress 65Stacked is making on his Galaxie, I'm so ready to start putting this thing back together and getting it on the road.
On a related note: My welder bit the dust last week so I bought a Lincoln Weld Pak 180. It's awesome! Turns out I wasn't a crappy welder -- I owned one. Wish I had done this a long time ago.
Now this is a fun build.Outstanding.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
Subscribed this is the best classic race car build I've come across on the Hamb lots of fab work , I would like too do a similar project down the road. Plus I bought Stacked65 64 Galaxie country squire that's still in his avatar last year.
.......Sent from Ar
Here are a few I snapped today. Not much new to show but there has been some progress. I took the doors off, stripped the paint on the interior sides and covered with a coat of primer. Still have a few seams to seal, strip the paint off the exterior, body work, prep, paint, assembly..... Maybe I'm not as close as I thought.
Just Wicked what an Awesome Ride
Im loving this build, looking forward to seeing more updates. This thing is going to look so tough when its finished!
I've just bought a Lincoln 180C myself, nice piece of kit eh?
TV? Now who has time for a TV??
Still making progress. Still stripping paint... The stripper is worthless. Spend hours burning my nostrils and eyes only to have to take the DA to it in the end anyway.
