    What did your Dad have in it for a engine and trans?

    Are you going to put fenders and running boards on it just like Pops had it?

    Dad bought the car with a 327 sbc, and a 4 speed. He later built a 383 sbc with a 2 speed powerglide and was racing the car .
    I'm building a 327 out of a 67 impala. I would like to put a muncie 4 speed in it, but the 350 turbo sure seems easy. No fenders for now, but I always liked the car with fenders on it.
     
  4. hot rods have three pedals, just saying!

    I found a good buy on some steel wheels. Lots of different wheels, but these caught my eye. They are 5 x 4.5 bolt hole. Can anyone tell me what make they are???

    Thanks blackout, I'm trying to find info on these wheels ,but not having much luck. When I look up Mopar steel wheels, I dont see these. The ones I see have spaces in the wheels, mine don't. Do you know what time frame these are from, and if I can buy moon caps for them? Thanks again.
