low and slow

Post by mantaray » Sat 03 Aug 2013, 05:55

so guys.....see what i found..good solid body 3spd manual, donkey slant 6 ;) still need an adaptor plate to suit the weber 38, brakes need to be sorted and i am missing what seems like a "ball joint" on the mechanical clutch pedal, it looks like it fitted on the side of the gearbox where the engine bolts together......any help appreciated.....oh..and dont forget your favourable comments :? i have decided to not touch the body...kinda tired of the Foose style cars, just gonna enjoy it for now...besides, it makes a cool tow vehicle for the monster waiting to be completed in the garage.

That is a good a economical way to start with a classic . Once you have it rolling and as money becomes available you change things . This way you at least enjoy the car .
