    hi all, bought a Australian delivered 55 4 door belair at the end of last year and plans are to turn it into drag car gasser. pretty much bought it as a roller and the floor was no good in it so i cut all the shit out and going to fabricate a whole new floor and fire wall. ive put new sils in and started on the roll cage first, then will build the floor around it. the car is also being converted from a 4 door to 2 door. here are some photos of progress so far cheers tom IMG_2624.JPG IMG_2625.JPG IMG_2626.JPG IMG_2874.JPG IMG_2876.JPG IMG_2885.JPG IMG_2911.JPG IMG_2917.JPG IMG_2918.JPG IMG_2919.JPG IMG_2938.JPG IMG_2939.JPG IMG_2940.JPG IMG_2941.JPG IMG_2943.JPG IMG_2979.JPG

    Really great work and I like to see everything being done the right way!

    Your engine choice is what?

    Roll cage mounted to the body would not pass NHRA tech. It must be welded to the frame since it has a frame. If this is a street car and is just for looks.... Carry on.
