Gtp got sold, no big deal. I did do this today.



Most of it is for sale, lmk if there is something that catches your eye.

Just keeping cowl, fenders, hood, and grille.

Looks like a lot of work to just keep the front body panels

Will you be building a tube chassis?

It will have a rectangular tube frame, not sure if I will just build the new tub into that or have it mounted... I'm leaning towards mounted.

It took a lot more work because I wanted to separate everything to sell off what isn't needed and recoup some of my money spent on buying it.

PM sent.


I also changed my mind to a 2.8L 700r4 trans so I can do reverse manual VB and still bolt up to the 3.8L

Why not a 4.3
Isn't the 60* 700r4 hard to find?

I thought you were going with a 2.8 motor and was wondering why the hell you would do that lol
I like the supercharged 3.8s I think they are cool
