Oh hell yes! Please tell me you're putting a big block in that big opening!
Yes Sir, pump gas BB with +/- 650hp
I'm diggin' the van, keep us posted on the progress.
That wagon is BITCHIN'
That van is BITCHIN'.
Awesome rambler, my dad has one just like this. I've been wanting to turn it into a gasser as well. What motor does it have and what did you do for the front suspension?
it will have a blown 383 the frontend is a speedway kit
Badass I want to put his 283 out of a 55 vette in ours. Where can i find the speedway kit?
Man- these are some neat rides - what a history-------goufos
Love this one....
That gasser van is wild.
You should paint it red and outline the side door with a 4 inch white border and a put a big white X on it. Maybe paint a few shingles on the roof and call it "The BARN STORMER".
Lord knows that thing is about as aero as a barn.
Just add wheels!!! ...and a 650 HP big block! LOL
Anyone remember a black 65 Olds 442 that used to be in the Napa Calif. area in the early to mid 70's that was all jacked up with extended spindles in front and leaf springs in the rear ?
Please tell me you're putting an Allison V-12 from a WWII fighter in that van!
speedway motors they have a web site i put a full frame in mine first
heres a link to some build pictures
OH MAN, Before I was old enough to have a drivers license if e.j. potter was running at Thompson I would hitch hike ,steal acar from the eastside of cleveland to see him run. My favorite was the sbc dragbike on a axle stand at the starting line he would rev it up and his pitman would shove it off the stand and all hell would break loose.balls of steel he would get out of shape and barely back out of the throttle.Its a shame it cant be seen again.Thanks for the flashback I needed it.RED
Sweet that should make the build alot easier, but couldn't view the link to your pictures
Wow- 70's gold.
Anyone got pics of this one?
This thing is cool as hell!
Nice! I've been kicking around a similar idea for awhile but with the pickup version. Just happen to have a 429 Ford motor on the engine stand that would do the trick. I'll follow your progress in your album.
this is a frinds dont know if it falls in the odd deal but it is a rancharo also another buddies corvair
opps heres the pics
This car was campaigned in and around the PNW. I knew where the car was sitting years ago near my place in an apartment parkinglot! I am still looking for it but heard its gone to be Japper parts...
Crazy machine! This thread is unfrickinbelievable! Bitchin' stuff in here...
Thanks man, they are cool little trucks, have fun with yours.
I think I have a few I can contribute. This was at a World Of Wheels show in Kansas City around 1980.
