Re: 65 Chevelle Drag Car Build

Love where your going with this, cool project! I don't see many '64/'65 cars racing in the PNW.

Mine is very similar and my hopes are to run a similar Weld wheel as you pictured earlier and replace the scoop with a cowl hood.

Re: 65 Chevelle Drag Car Build

Bringing the back from the dead a bit..

Life and other business ventures have required me selling off my drivetrain.. So... no more 565/turbo glide :-(

BUT.. all things are not lost!

I dropped the car off up at Team Z motorsports to get the chassis done. Orders were... "Max Light" effort

This delivery has been in the works since PRI last year, and both Dave and I have been CRAZY busy. I was finally able to drag the car to MI to drop it off at his new building. (super impressive btw)

Not much has change in regards to ideas.. I am going to make sure the car is X275 legal. So it will have as much of the stock frame as required, but nothing more.. It will retain stock rear suspension, it will have as much stock floor as needed.. beyond that, it's game on!

It will be set up for a sb/nos/efi combo but the chassis is going to be built to accommodate a dry sump 5" motor.

This will be a process.. but I will post pics as I get them..
