Last updated Jul 28, 2011
this started out as a four door I had bought to build a pro streeter of...it was ruff as a cobb but to solid to cut like i would to build for pro street then the parts were there and an some measuring it became a daily driver and parts hauler I could hook the boat to and toss in the dawg and the kids and go have fun.so one night lookin at it...then a few beers...then a tape measure and some more beers...more measuring and a plan was hatched.....then some fool said that will never work...then followed by a redneck's famous last word's "hey Ya'll watch this" and waggin was gittin some surgery the next day and is now a reality and sure fun to drive with the v-8 and the four speed now installed it's a diffrent car compared to the slanty and the auto it had for a year or two
318 four barrel,833 four speed,drum brakes,not sure about miles per gallon but plenty of smiles per gallon :)
no special equipment was factory installed not even a radio,no chrome package....just nuthin and a lot of it even had the lil' 170 slant six
paintjob is pearl white with hok "burple" with gold leafing and some additional striping with lt blue and some fading within the striping. was an uglee old four door...now a two door hardtop.v-8 and four speed with the original 3:42 rear gear,I added a custom trailer hitch to haul the boat,overhead console with am/fm/cd and pockets to keep stuff,custom overhead lighting from an old conversion van and complete crysler fifth avenue interior witch I modified to fit along with modifying the floor pan so the carpet would fit.
