This is my first barn find that I equired in the late 90s . It was already a modified hot rod with no engine or transmission. The guy I bought it from said it had a Buick nailhead in the 70s, How cool is that.
I added some 1 inch square tubing for the floor, and support in the back. The transmission hump and seats are all metal. The transmission hump and floor are not quite finished.
The steering gear is a reversed Corvair by Flaming River.The rear axle is a 1979 Ford 9in with 3:55 gears and has 4 linked suspension with airbags.
I’ve gone more than 200 miles in one day. Several times. It’s a blast on the freeway.
