First new build in 10 years


Recommended Posts

Well I took the plunge and started my first new build in almost 10 years. Never built a modified stock car before and thought I would give it a go. This is going to be a Richie Evans #61 Pinto. Made a few body and chassis mods to get the front of the body lower, set the engine back an 1/8", and shortened the rear of the chassis 1/8th of an inch then filled in the sink marks. Just getting started!

Made some progress on the Pinto. Chassis is about done, I made the front coil overs from Some Pro Street Chevelle shocks with aluminum rod wrapped around it and fabricated a fuel cell from evergreen sheets. Working on the 427 motor next.

Made some progress on the Richie Evans Pinto. Motor is mostly done. I still want to make some oil breathers for the valve covers and i have to make an air cleaner assy. Still trying to find some orange paint for the body and waiting on the wide 5 rims to arrive in the mail.
