Not true. Tub it but then fit really wide cross ply tyres (period correct dontcha know) on 15" rims. Would look great but even a Mustang motor should be able to spin the tyres!!! :tongue2:

Hi guys about of an update. Things have started moving on the welding front B543DB2D-2048-4337-9136-636A8C6CD6B4.jpgCD2ED1BC-D8E0-4AD8-8BB2-69D075CD2746.jpg3CB2CE59-A8C6-47A3-815E-2ECD900C98B8.jpg. On the down side I’m now on the look for a 727 gearbox to fit in the back of the 383 so if anyone knows of one or is falling over please give us a call thanks

Well having now found out that the gearbox I got in the sale is for a 6 pot not the 383 I’ve managed to purchase a complete engine and box from a Cadillac for a lot less than the gearbox that I needed only problem now is the engine size has gone up from 6.3 liters (383) to 8.2liters (502) lol should be fun. Not the way I wanted to go but at £300 for engine and box was a no brainer just leaves me to fab up engine mounts and splice a prop for a complete drive chain . More photos to follow
