Cool car, Tim. It was sold right down the road from me and lived in Austin. I spoke with a good friend in Milwaukee today and it sounds like you've had plenty of time this winter to work on a project if your garage is heated.

You are correct.................9 days of snow.

The shop is heated, the fridge is cold!

Moving along.............................

Measured up for wheels

Front 18x8
Rear 18x10





Wheel of choice.........................



And now building the exhaust. I wanted the tail pipes to go over the axle. It's going to be tight, but it will fit and work.....























I will be able to fit the tail pipes between the frame rails and the fuel tank to hide them the way I wanted to.

Why is the exhaust rigid welded to the frame? Me thinks that is going to crack the hanger welds after some driving
