You did a nice job! I am starting on my 57 soon and looking for ideas. I built my 62 mainly stock with a little mods but now I want to do something different with this one. I ordered a CPP complete Mustang II with rear suspension kit and I'm also planning on a LS swap. Right now I am trying to decide on a rear axle that will work for the truck. My 62 has the same 10 bolt with 390 gears and I hate it on the highway. So I am looking for 70s rear end. Who designed your for panels? They also look killer!

Re: 1956 Chevy 3100 Corvette Suspension

Hauled the 56 for the first time on the new trailer. Worked great with no issues. Much better trailer than the other one.

I like it a lot. The only issue I have is that my fuel tank wasnít made properly so I ordered a custom one with the internal fuel pump from Boyd welding. I still need to do the learn mode which will self tune it. Once I get the new fuel tank Iíll get it dialed in better than I do now.

Re: 1956 Chevy 3100 Corvette Suspension

How hard was it to hook up the 700r4 with the Sniper EFI? What did you use for a bracket for the TV Cable?

It wasnít much different than anything else. Iím not sure in the bracket that youíre talking about but I know we didnt have to do anything special to get it going.

What tire size are you running?
