  • Vehicle Overview

    Traded a used chain saw and 30-30 rifle for a burned out/stripped out hull, witch took me 4 years of badgering to do the trade. Although after my build I did go back and give the previous owner a ride, which by the way gave him a heart throb of envy. Took me a year to build motor in our kitchen A FORD 302 bored/stroked out to 354 cu.in. Best of everything, cleaned/primed/painted down to the last nut and bolt. Added Coil overs+ re-built original arm shocks on rear --- Added Koni's with re-built original arm shocks front. Electric H2o pump. All body/paint by me as well and all mechanical work except balancing of 17" driveshaft & balancing of engine internals. Firewall aluminum with mirror stainless on engine side. All aluminum floorboards with Firewall/tunnel/floorboards insulated. Everything in it is either Re-Built or New. 835/15x60 Cooper's on front--- 855/60x15's MT Street drag radials on rear. AND YES, I did build the 4 point roll bar.
