Nope never bought he has built them all! 5 in total I think. And when he said he was.willing to supply the 455 for the jeep I said sold. Esp as this is the motor out of his brown street car


And rick I only did that with the one that wouldn't go otherwise. With a more abel rig I wont have to be that hard on it.

I will get back to working on it soon. Don't know how fast progress will be as there is a fair bit of fab that needs to be done. Motor mounts, fuel tank, wiring, d60 steering, shocks , brakes, interior, driveshafts ect. Ect.


And the money to do it. With the car I had everything but this last little bit I need to do now ( tune! So the dank thing will last.)


And for those that don't know I have been working on this. It should run high 12's this year.

Well just for an update, I blew the car up again so i will be doing another motor swap In the sping. Haven't touched the camaro or the jeep. But dad has had some issues with his leg and his mobility has been greatly affected so we have been dealing with that. I will get back to this thing sooner or later. I want it done so i can start on the 72'.

Yah yah. Get there when i get there. I have however sold 90% of my go fast parts for the gp, sold the bike ( hate to see it go but am not missing the payments) and will be putting more effort into my classic projects, after I get bills payed.


Besides a rig like this don't get done in one year on a budget. They are never really done! But i agree it needs to be usable this year
