I' of course, would weld in the new rear 4 link or whatever suspension and do almost all of the suspension work with the air compressor and other stuff. He wants it to be "old school" looking but does not want to go fast in it. That is probably a good thing since this car weighs about as much as two track prepared Z cars. I would have to fabricate a new front bumper and grille sionce those are missing.
In fact this car may have the paint rolled on.

kennysgreen280zt: I would not think there would be any stuff for those cars but that is cool that there is stuff out there for them. I think that it is an Inline 6 but I am not sure. It is a 4-door with two bench seats.
It looks like it needs that drivers window but that should not be too much. I like the look of whitewall tires on that car too.
this place has about 200 cars and they rebuild a bunch of them to perfect condition. They have a showroom full of older cars but they weren't open when I stopped by.
The plan would be to to have an automatic transmission, 200-250 horsepower. It could be a hybrid with a 350 chevy or that 2.3T ford...Or maybe even keep the engine in it if it could be rebuilt and then mated to an automatic tranny. The idea of putting the body on like a caprice or other chassis has been considered. This car would be planned out in advance opposed to the never-ending totology of my car.

It has an inline 8 with a 3 speed manual tranny. Grille and bumper are inside the car. Car will run off of a gas can on the fender. They are asking $4800 OBO for it. I can't see paying more than $3500 for it. At least the motor runs though.

here is the pontiac straight 8, it weighs as much as a z car, I took this picture because the engine is just huge. SBC head for reference.
