Re: 1951 lt1 t56 c4 build!!!

thats bad ass, no pun intended. I was wondering why you had two top pieces on that frame, now it makes sense. Great idea. I'm not a bucket seat guy but if I were I'd steal your design!! I never use stock benches cause they don't fold up, now you got my wheels turning, good work.

Cool idea. Maybe a good place to put some of the electronics?

Re: 1951 lt1 t56 c4 build!!!

Great fab work, along for the ride. Not a question I would normally ask but what did you go to school for and what do you do for a living? I am going to hazard a guess on engineering??

At any rate love your project, keep up the hard work.

I was actually thinking about putting the radio and maybe a couple other thing down there.

Actually I'm 22 and I got a job in manufacturing right out of high school. But I have been working on race cars hotrods and show cars since about the time I could walk.

Re: 1951 lt1 t56 c4 build!!!

Well it has been 6 years since the last time I made a post on here so I guess it is about time for me to. Ive had some major changes (good changes) in my live over the past few years that has caused this project to be put on the back burner for a while... or more like put back in the fridge..

But it is finally time to get back at it again! I am very excited to be working on this truck again and to share my progress with all of you.

So to get things started here is a picture getting the front end mocked back up. Im getting ready to build a new mount for the front end and install the radiator.

Dressed up the lt1 a little bit. The stock compressor location wouldn't fit inside the frame rails.
