One piece fiberglass front end.
2" chopped through the side windows, windshield & under the rear window so we could use the original back glass. The bubble roof line was then hammered another 2.5" for an overall 4.5 inch effect.
Chop job & Custom 2"x3" chassis and 1 5/8" roll cage completed & fabricated in Leavenworth KS by BOBBY WATKINS of "GNT CHASSIS"
(good 'n tight). (913)772-8705
Narrowed Ford 9" w/Detroit locker, 2.55:1 cruising gears from a '78 Merc Marquis. (Will be hooked to 4-Link w/coil overs).
IFS is polished '88 Corvette.
New Process 4 spd from a '69 Plymouth Satellite 2dr hard top 440/6pac. (Will be shifted courtesy of a Hurst super shifter w/red knob reverse lockout lever.)
392 hemi from a '57 Imperial.
Note: The one in the photo is from P-Ayr Products and is injection molded. It is an exact duplicate of the original with threaded mounting holes etc but it weights about 4 lbs! Great for setup.
Polished Weiand intake with 4 flow matched inline Stromberg 48s.
Steelies all the way around w/little Mickeys, big Mickeys & baby moons.
Tilt steering wheel is from a '91 S-10.
High back buckets are from an '89 Toyota Supra, dvr's seat is power.
16.5 Gal fuel cell that will fit nicely between the rear tubs.
Fuel filler will be placed under a rear mounted fold down license plate ala mid 60s GM.
The tail lights will stay original, mounted in the tail fins.
It will also be equipped with A/C & Pwr Windows.
Stereo will be mounted above the windshield.
Thinking of exterior color of Pearlescent Buttercup w/ghost flames.
I already have the material for the interior - solid teal & teal with splash graphics for the seats with a beige-almost tweed material headliner and a combination of the two for the door panels.
Hopefully have it completed (roadworthy) by summer 2001.
