helps fuel milage. don't you know, the lighter the car, the gas milage goes up.

went and pulled a bunch of the wood out today. will replace it with square tubeing. took all the nuts, bolts and rivets 0ff the firewall to help smooth it off and look better.

yup. l had tony my welding guy put in 3 more braces to hande the torque and 400 hp of this motor. will be cutting about 10'' out of the back doors to achieve that two door sedan look

my truck has a 400 hp 396 in it and weighs 4000 lbs, the 33 sedan should be about 2800 lbs,,,,,,,should be a fun ride.

for the tranny the 700r4 should be ok and with a set of 3:25's it should do fairly decent on milage and a buttkickin' machine.

cut the body to day, took out only 7'' because the chassis l am using was built for a differant kind of car. to get the body to fit correctly, that was all we could safely take out . will finish welding up the body tomarrow or the next day. soon after the welding on the main body is done, we will fill in where the doors were. :new pics in gallery

worked on the guages today. the area above the windsheild has enough room for the guages to fit in and puts them right at eye level.
even have a transmission heat guage made by B&M from 1979 still in the oringal package l bought it in.

panel

Post by skull on January 16th 2010, 7:12 pm

funny how a project changes after you actually start building the thing.
I planned this build on paper for about a month before working on it.
the plan was 10 to 12 inches removed and no center post and full length plexi-glass quarter panel windows. was only able to remove 7 inches because of the frame being desiegned for a 1929 ford body, not the dodge body. now the plan has changed to a panel delivery type build. when the picture was sent to me the way it was done with filled in rear windows, l went OOOOOOHHHHHHH YEEAAAAH!!! so in answer to the ???, YES l am doing the panel delivery look.

one plus is the guys who are helping me said that putting in the panels is actually easier than removing the post and using the plexi-glass windows.
