Yea james, It will be illegal in va lol. But ill have to have it plated for the trails. And I'm gonna drive it round the neighborhood and such lol
Should be 96" wide depending on how the ballooning of the tires affect it.

Damn that's wide. But you have clearance lights to tell people you're over 80" wide so its all good lol.

Holy crap, the X sure changed a bunch. I was unaware of the latest progress until you posted the link to this.

Great work. Keep it up.

the front of the truck being cut off was easier than lining up a converter to a motor 3ft in the air. so motor and tranny went in as one. needed a new clip anyway

Thanks for the picture man, I might be getting a 390 out of my neighbor's '63 Thunderbird (he has four of them and two are parts cars), still need to search for a trans and transfercase. Are you getting glass fenders or staying with stock width fenders?

I kinda figured you were gonna stick with the stock front clip, there's no covering up those wide axles and tires. lol

Its possible, but I rather not bother. I'm just gonna bang it all up again anyway.

Jacob at is taking forever to build my strong box. Its been almost two months... but once I get it my buddy better get his ass in gear and finish the cage Nd suspension so I can play with the seats, motor, and wiring.
