    Sent the car to Dallas this past February for the chop, then it went to my dads house for some work till now. Got it back in Baton Rouge tonight, and I think it is looking good... Thanks MarkX and my dad for helping me out, couldn't have done it myself.

    Next will be the 4" channel job. Will keep you all updated.

    MarkX knows the exact year, but I think it was a mid 50's suburban.

    HAHAHA:D :rolleyes: I guess it's possible:eek: What other plans do you have for this sedan? Do you have a vision or are you just rolling along as you can? If you don't have it done for the drags;) You think you'll have it at the roundup?
    Very cool to have people that will help you out...especially family!

    Sheepdogg, The car is looking good.
    Hope to see it on the street soon.
    Louvers in the hood would look great.
    Let me know if I can help.

    Thanks all for the comments.

    I am shooting for the roundup....

    As far as the car, it will have a 4" channel, 350 w/ 3-2's, T-5, 9" ford (3.89 posi) For now I am going to run an open engine compartment. It should should start to roll once the body is mounted.
