saw a ad for this 8000,oo
If you have the means, and it speaks to you, then you have your answer...
Radius out the rear fender wells, drop the rear, more period correct wheels and paint the hood.... Although I would change color.... Maybe a bright orange...
Simple answer to a simple question...……...YES!!!
If I was going to spend 8000.00 on a car I’d build it myself but that’s just me building it is the fun part

Should I bang the ex-wife next month when she comes to town?
Buy it and go have fun if that's what you want, there's lots of opinionated A-holes here that'll tell you everything but what you want to hear, it's not their money or life, do what YOU want to do.
Maybe, but don't forget why she is the X wife
Are you into drag racing? It might be fun. I'd be more inclined to build something I could drive around on the street, but that's just me.
I agree, but I gave no details. Hmnn. The words in the ad are generic, go look at it... how was it built, etc. kinda like my ex. Looks good, I really do t want another ride
Come on, you know the drill around here. It is really hard to help out with advice on some subjects without pictures.
I never tell anyone how to spend their money...
You got 8 grand burning a hole in your packet?
Look's like a lot of fun for the buy in to me...
Do you want it? can you afford it? if the answer is yes you answered your own question, sleep om it overnight and if you still feel the same way go for it.HRP
Go take it for a ride! That'll answer your question!
cant build it for that
miss you dad
OH OH OH and tint the windows orange or red while you're at it.
Just for the record ....uh....there was never a Hurst '53 Chevy....... If you think YOU'D be happy with it, that's the only person you have to please.
I would buy it and make it my own. Radius wheel wells as others have said and different wheels. Of course I would definitely look it over well and drive it first. Ron
You do know what's going to happen if you don't buy it? your going to join "the one that got away club". I've renewed my membership in this club too many times than I can count over the years.
I would pass, I like street...
Buy it so we can pop the hood and see what a 500hp, 383 looks like......................
Go look at it. Back yard build? How long ago? How many runs on drivetrain? Ask a lot of questions

Look it over carefully!! what is the 1/4 mile ET? MPH?-could be lots of fun for $8K if it's safe etc.
Get a sponsor first if you race it you will need one.
Put a 4 speed in it and run with the S.E.G.A.
Is it street legal? if not you need a trailer and a truck to pull it.
