Re: 1951 lt1 t56 c4 build!!!

I don't have any pics of the frame build because I built most of it when I was 16 and then I got busy with school and work so I took about a five year break from working on it.

Right on C4! Hope you don't mind me picking your head on your build from time to time. I have a 51 three window and am doing the C4 IFS and IRS like you are with a LT1 and auto tranny out of a 95 Buick Roadmaster.

Re: 1951 lt1 t56 c4 build!!!

Got any pics of the rear with a side view ?

I am curious about ride height and tire to fender clearance.

Made some good progress on the firewall this weekend just have the drivers side foot panel and the tunnel left.

And if you were wondering the doghouse started life as a wheelbarrow.
