New rod - maybe see the salt....

Post by panhead_pete » Mon Nov 30, 2009 1:18 pm

Have started the build of my new 30 coupe. Car was originally chopped in the late 50s in Cali as seen in the black and white pic.

Chassis has 4" sweep in the front of the frame and 14" in rear built from 100x50x3

Here's the chassis and body at ride hieght.

Its get a LSD out of a NC V8 failane and 4" dropped I beam/hair pin front end.

Motor will be a 383 with low profile small blower 144 or 172. Turbo 350 gearbox.

Now just need to confirm what class (with 4" chop and the visor area is modified) B/BFCC ?? it will fit into and consider whether I build it for a tilt at the salt next year.... Even just a couple of 100 mph passes :)

Thanks for looking.
Dreaming of the salt in 08.
