The plan is a street/strip car. LSA Cadillac motor/4L80E combo........maybe........ 315/60/15 drag radial with a 4.30 gear. Hoping for mid/upper tens and hiway fuel economy in the low 20's. Should be a fun build.

Getting ready to go to the chassis shop. TCI front clip with a moly chassis/cage.

They don't have car washs up in your neck of the woods?:p
Looks like a real solid car. Im about to do something similar to a 63 so I'll definitely follow your build. Good luck.

Your about the 10th person that's said that Gary. It was snowing like crazy when I brought the car home. It was in an enclosed and I didn't feel like unloading it, pressure washing it and dragging it back in and tying it back down again. Lazy.

Whats the plan on the lsa motor ?
I did a bunch of research on them, and while they are attractive combo's, there is also a lot of expense after the motor purchase to make it all work. I also found out that GM is having warranty issues with the front snout bearing/coupler in the ctsv's and people are waiting weeks for warranty repairs. I figure I would be shit outa luck if I had a problem with my crate motor. I have purchased a 20k LM7 truck motor, and a turbo package from Lil John, and we're gonna see if we can't put 650 to the ground and make it live. Should be fun.
