Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Thanks, guys. I haven't done too much since I've been putting a lot of time and energy into my funny car project. But, I did finish the frame and plugged all of the holes in the firewall (PO drilled a 100 holes for various things) - I still need to replace some floor sections in the cab since the PO installed several diiferent seats while he had it. I started to do final mock ups of the cab and bed.

Thanks, Dino...here are a couple of photos from when we ran in the Nostalgia Show n Go and Pontiac event at Speedworld a few months ago (our mutual friend, Brian Wilson, helped me out and used his C-10 as the tow vehicle). Hopefully, I can get this '63 rolling soon.




...body repaired and painted

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Thanks...here's an older photo of the front fender modification I do to help with proportion of the opening between the front and rear openings.



The forward bars I fabricated from leftover roll cage stock. I made it a bolt-in set up, so that I could remove it to make engine removal and installation easier. It's a front and rear air spring set up just so I can have a little ride height adjustability for the roads out here, plus the approach to my driveway is a little steep. Inner front fenders are stock and I widened my pair of rear wheel wells.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Thanks...I did make and weld in some patch panels for the cab this past weekend, but spending most of my time tearing down and examining the funny car engine after a short 9K RPM pass just to see if it liked it - so far nothing wrong. Replacing the main and rod bearings with Calico coated bearings. Just re-stripped the impellars on the supercharger and getting ready for runs in the new year.

Hey Vin, do you run against Dan Horan? One of my buddies is on his crew so I make the drive out to SpeedWorld whenever they are in town. I love the old body styled floppers!

Nice work on the '63 !!

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

So Vin, how goes it on the 63 build?
Since you chose to improve your truck by putting a mighty Pontiac mill in her... I sure have been curious of your progress...
I have 2 63's that I tinker on every time I get a chance.
Both get a Pontiac.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Just got back from the pre-March Meet open testing at Bakersfield. At the end of last year, I stepped up to a 44 amp ProMag and I'm now running 70% nitro, but this necessitated a lot of other parts.




Since I've been putting all of my energy into running a funny car, there isn't much time leftover for my shop truck project. I did finish the body work on the cab, installed some sound/thermal barrier, mounted the AC evaporator, and sprayed some 3M sealant/sound deadener under the cab and the bottom portion of the firewall. I hope to mount all of the sheetmetal and drop it off for paint this summer...

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Phew…with the racing season done, I was able to make some progress on getting the Poncho C10 project off to paint. I realigned the fenders, radiator support, hung the doors, mounted the bed and tailgate, aired up the suspension and put it in the box and dropped it off a my friend's shop.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

I lowered the lip 2.5 inches on the front fenders. I always thought the front fender opening was a bit too tall - not much fender over the wheel opening. So, I sectioned the fender and lowered the lip. Here's kind of a before and after:
