    Those of you that have experience with '53-'55 Champions, what are the options for lowering them a couple inches?

    We lowered the race car with stock front end by carving off 1.5 gyres from each front spring and replacing the rear leafs with flatter arch/fewer leaf from ford truck. This gave about 5" clearance in front. See Salt2Salt to check out the stance....

    Sorry this is OT.

    Small world redlineracer24! I grad from Sterling HS in 71. My dad ran the ARCO plant (also a Firestone dealer) in Deer Grove, ILL. In 69/70, he was getting Arnie Beswick his slicks. Met him a couple times, cool guy. He would take his motors that were about to be rebuilt (in his FC) and use them to run his FC in exhibitions on tractor pull tracks in that corner of ILL. Would throw dirt 300 ft in the air!! Really wild! (we used to go to morrison on weekends for the girls, they were wild too!)

  28. brought a little apache red something home tonight

    be interesting to see if and how it drives tomorrow and learn more about it

    plans percolating - mild, with slightly lower rear, bit wider steel wheels, hurst cheaters with dirt track pattern and some cleaning and polishing

    possibly darker hood and roof with some striping

    it's a little truck, so keeping it simple.

    Cute lil' Champ pickup.
    Watch the cylinder head closely.
    They are subject to cracking bad if overheated, and finding a good, used, head without similar cracks is getting harder (read that $$$)
    If yours has 'swing pedals', check the pivot area real close for wear. Big source for
    hard pedal push..
