l am starting a new project and taking a new direction. I have spent most of my seven decades being one of those dreaded "restorer's". Now I headed down a new path with the '57 Buick and need some solid advice. I want to keep the body basically stock but want to make some serious alterations to the frame and suspension. I would like to upgrade to a more modern front suspension and eliminate the closed drive shaft. I plan to use a '66 Buick 425 dual quad and possibly a TH400 transmission. I saw a beautiful '57 at the Good Guys show in Del Mar this spring and it had a "Scotts" power rack and pinion and then I have seen cars with Fat Boys systems in them. My question is, has any one done a similiar project. What is the best system? What or where is a good source for information. What direction should I be considering for a rear end conversion? Any pros or cons on tubing the rear end? Appreciate any information that is out there.
