  • Re: Pro Street Hot Rod....

    Thanks again!

    Well this car with alllll the trim bells and wistles in 1948 sitting on showroom weighted in at exactly 3,100 lbs basicly 17 lbs more thana 70 sb nova,
    Plus one major point on this car is i have been real attentive of is the weight in the build as i go along,
    I mean the engine will be a lil more than the orginal 216 6 cylinder but im thinking not by much with the alumin heads and all the addition aluminum on it,
    I saved 50 pounds by running these aluminum heads thats a decent amounut off the from end, but also no radio no heater to radio no back seat wheels really light weight etc. pretty anixous to see just how much it does weight, dont think it will be under 3k but should b pretty close if not a tad under orginal weight.
    Best part is all my buddies think this thing weights 5k lbs lol dont let the curvey body full ya!

        A lil progress trunks back on...
        I know it was a lot of work to smooth up the hinges but i think was worth it sorta gives them an aftermarket look but still orinal in style and shape not to mention they'll be alot stronger.

        Respahed trunk jams and smoothed them up aswell and used a small rubber seal from steel.

                        Love your build! Been watching your build from the sidelines and can't wait to see the color go on! That's always such a major step, and I get pretty excited just waiting for it when I have one done!

                          What do you get when you mix a 53 Ford and a Sunfire?
                          Some pretty Bitchin seats thats what! lol

                          Took a litte trip today out to the local junk yard and found a cool set of side covers that ive been looking for now for some time, and after some modifing and taking 3/4" out of them to get them to fit real tight, this is what i have.

                          Pretty excited its going to give me that antique look yet with a mixture of the lil modern hot rod to them.

                          Even though the covers are not real noticable i think makes for a cleaner look to the interior also theres a nice slot available for me to run my seat belts through for a cleaner look aswell so the belts are not just hanging on the side of the seats they can come up through the bottom behind the covers! I'll keep you updated of course....Later George

                                        I'm curious if you have picked a color for the car.

                                          Congrats.

                                          It must feel good getting body off the frame.What changes are you going to do on the frame and how are you going to finish the underside of body. Is the body staying on the dolly platform or will it be going on a rots. keep posting. Thanks bob r.
