"Neat car!!! My uncle had one with a 383 that had been hopped up with a 4 speed that was one of the direct reasons I ended up being a gear head and hot rodder!!! Many tire smoking sideways rides will do that to you when you are a youngster!!! Also had a high school buddy that had one with a factory Hemi and a 4 speed that was the fastest car I ever rode in for a lot of years too!!! Also had a close cousin just a few years older than me that built a 69 model GTX with a 440 with his dad to race at the weekly program at Bristol TN's Thunder Valley way back in the day and he still drove it on the street too, took me a ride in it that made realize that I just thought my Buddy's Hemi car was fast!!!It ran low 11's at over 130 mph and that was darn fast in the early 70's!!!!! Good luck on making this one yours and looking forward to the progress pictures!!!!"

About Me -

Member for: 6 years, 10 months, 7 days

I am one of the old geezers. Just retired early this year and finally finding time to work on my 72 Cheyenne swb project. I have always loved cars, bikes, and boats. I have a nostalgia 49 Thames (Anglia) racetruck that was originally built in 1971. My first involvement was with a 48 Anglia sedan drag car that my neighbor owned when I was in my early teens and I have loved them since. I sold my Anglia streetrod a few years back and miss having a car to cruise in. Guess I will be building something to replace it soon. Maybe a 31 3-window Ford coupe built in the traditional style. I have a some old race equipment that could be used in the build that would fit the 50's style. Nov 2011 update. Got a nice 30 5-window coupe for cruising. Building a 56 Chevy sedan gasser. Frame cut and refabricated for a straight axle front end out of 50 Chevy truck. Disc brakes on front and drums on back. 455 Olds power with a Muncie M22 4-speed behind it. Body work and paint in progress.
