Default ArkAngel 64 Chevelle build for 9.90 Renegade Racing series

Well, I have decided to Post a thread to follow the building of my 1964 Chevelle 300 (2 door sedan) dual purpose (Heads up and Bracket car) race car. I will be documenting what it takes to build a Mid to High 9 second race car from a rolling chassis to a finished race car and then slow it down, to run the Renegade Racing Associations NEW 10.50 Heads Up class (Renegaderacingassociation.com). This car will also be my 9 second Bracket car, that I race the No Box class with. It will be raced in the North East Ohio area @ Norwalk/Summit Motorsport Park, Thompsons, Dragway 42 and Quakercity.

History: I bought the car in October 2009 from a guy in Boston as a rolling chassis, no motor, no trans. He pulled them for the sale. I paid WAY under $8,000 for it, because I looked long and hard for a new car. I found it on RacingJunk after I sold my 1981 Tube chassis Camaro on Ebay. I lucked out because the previous owner was a body man and he was proud to send me 20+ pics of it, inside and out, including underneath of it, while it was on a lift! I received WAY more value for the money I paid, because I was patient and diligent and I was able to talk him down a bit.

I am a big guy (6'2" 350+) and I was looking for a car that was larger than my 81 tube chassis Camaro, which I did not fit inside so I sold it, or my 67 Tube chassis Camaro (The Original ArkAngel), 1927T altered or my 1968 Chevelle 2 door sedan that I had previously.

Here are the specs as I received the car:
