Build

A story in pictures

Start
Strip
Roll cage and suspension support
Incorporate fixtures into body
Custom bumpers and front end all built in original style of car.
Not all of the build was smooth sailing.  After interviewing people to rebuild the engine I choose poorly.  Lucky for me we stated early and rebuilt the engine a second time.  Advanced engines in Helena Montana did a great job decompressing the engine with out sacrificing much power and getting it to run right.
Engine Mounts
Fuel tank and spare mounts
Paint
After testing in the Desert we are back in the shop.

What did we learn:

  • Car needs new springs.  We need more height.  
  • Rear axel broke and needed to be replaced with stronger setup using ford drum breaks.
  • Replace two part drive line with single.
  • Replaced the transmission with a T5 transmission (Thank you Duane Matejka at Team R Sport for all the help.)
  • Finish bottom skid plates 
  • GET A QUIETER MUFFELER AND RESENATOR!!!!
  • Add more insulation to foot box.  It gets hot.
