Looks to be a great start Greg...
The purple frame is very nostalgic to say the least but easily fixed...
What are your plans for her? Motor, tranny, etc...
Good luck with the build, and keep us posted!

Thanks - Well I went with Martz Chassis to build the front end clip with rack and pinion, coil overs, tubular a-arms and 6 piston disc brakes. The rear clip is coming with a 4-link setup, coil overs, and a "F_word" 9" with 4:56 ratio and 6 piston disc as well. As for a powerplant, have my heart set on either a 427 or 454 bbc with an 871 BDS blower and dual carb setup. Hoping to fit a 315 up front and a 335 in the rear. Not sure what trans to go with - posted this up in another forum - waiting to see what ya'all think since the torque will be probably up around 700 with the hp in that range as well. Definitely want atleast a 5 speed for overdrive. Any thoughts?

Re: New to the forum - Old to my 68' addiction :)

Had a great great day today! Started the tear down process and got quite a bit done. Interior carpet and seats out. Driveshaft, trans and motor pulled - even got the front subframe off and the body up on jackstands. Hoping to get the rear pulled tomorrow
