I am thinking about pulling this one back out and finishing it up. Needs a lot of work and redoing the frame in some places. Have a choice of motors from a hemi to a 283, which is the white one, with a blower and lots of garbage on it.......................

This will be the motor,,,I rebuilt the front end a little and narrowed it up, it was too wide for this car....also did a lot of cleanup onn the frame assembly.

On a side note.

For those that missed the beginning of this build 2 years ago,,,,the body and frame were done in less than 2 days so it is kinda rough,,,I am finishing it but it is not the best to start with, The rear end is a mdified Jag independent rear and leaf spring in the front with working steering. The engine is scratch hemi sort,of,,,,,,,,,,, :P

A little cut and paste,,,,,,and taking hammering out a simple vavle cover it is strating to have the right design ques,,,,
