    Earlier in the year i built a 32 roadster body from flat sheetmetal and turned a two ton fire truck into a 3W coupe.
    Needed something to build so a 74 350/4spd vette off CL cheap was a good start. Now to make it HAMB friendly. It will be a period style 50's road race car. Sawzall city..................... Ray

    I need to see what i can do using the vette body tub. I'm 6'7" tall and have driven these cars and fit well. I bought two models of a corvette and wittled one down to get a idea.
