Progress pics of my tube chassis gasser

Thought I would share some pics of my tube chassis gasser project for my girlfriend.



Its a '62.The motor is a 454(going to be a 468)Was going to be a 396,but I got a good deal on this block and a steele crank and rods.Still undecided on the gear box.Probably a Super T-10,right now I have a Muncie case for mock up.
Dana 60 with leaf springs,floaters and 36" ladder bars.
Its a street car that will tech and run out at the track.

We've been together 14 plus years. We bought her '62 about 8-9 years ago. It was pretty much a bucket. She drove it for a while until it just was to much effort to keep fixing. We went a nostalgic drag event at Woodburn and she saw some great axle cars running. She asked if we could do that with her car. Um...........................YEA!! You bet!!
Brandon
The car right now has been tabled. I decided to get my motor fixed and make a few passes before the years out. After that,I'll be back on the A F/X.
Brandon
Theres some more on this build on this thread.
