I got this Idea the other day sitting on the crapper at work. I've been wanting to take part in the hamb drags for a while and since alot of carshows lately have started adding drag racing to their line up I came up with an idea. I don't have a lot of cash to buy something and build it for racing But I do already own a couple of 64-66 bodystyle chevy pickups sitting next to my house. Sooooo after seeing a post about a 60's ford truck that was built up like a gasserish racing truck I thought why not try something similar with one of my trucks. They both have 12 bolt rearends in them and decent rear suspension setups for racing and one of the rears has 3.73 gears already. I also have a swb stepside bed that someone has started radiusing the wheel wells for some reason, so I could use it since I was going to junk it anyway. Then I have the stuff for a fairly stout 350 chevy. The engine I have has already been rebuilt it just needs a few more goody's. I've got a pair of camel hump heads that have been ported, polished, hardend seats installed, machined for screw in studs/guide plates. I also have a couple of hydraulic cams that worked really well in my previous street/strip vehicles so I could use that. Or buy a solid lift stick for it. I'm pretty sure I've got a couple of intakes also that I used when I was racing years ago. Next I'd just need to do something about a trans. Thats the only thing I don't think I have. What I'd do to the truck is leave it sitting up high for right now maybe lower the back of the truck just a little. Remove the front bumper and make some kind of small nerf bars for it, or make some kind of different frame horns with a spreader bar. On the rear I'd probably run some kind of rear bumper to help with weight transfer on the cheap. The bed already has the floor gone most of the way so I would probably just brace it up some so it wont flop to pieces while racing. I think I have an aluminum fuel cell that I could bolt in the bed somewhere after I make the bracing. I'm not sure about running a hood or not. My first Idea would be to not run a hood but I don't know about track rules involving hoods or not. I'm not sure on a cage or not because I don't know how fast this Junkyard OUTHOUSE would be so thats something I'd have to consider also. I've got some skinny 15" steel wheels that I could use as front runners then I would just have to try and come up with some wider rear wheels to mount a set of slicks too, that the local tire shop sells. I've got a set of headers that worked well on my last truck I raced so I could use them. I've also got a bunch of other parts stashed away that would help get the truck going. For starting I'll leave the factory independent front suspension but later on I'd change it out to a straight axle setup. I'd also add Lightening holes to the insides of the cab to make it lighter like racers did years ago. I have lots of other Ideas for it also just more than I want to type here. I don't know would this be a bad idea or what. I'd love to have my model A setup where I could race it but thats going to take alot more money and parts that I don't have. I may just be daydreaming what do you all think? I will try and find a picture of the truck that gave me this Idea so you can visualize it.
