Vanish keeps his No Door on a trailer so when he finally decides he wants to sell it to me it'll be ready to go!

Should be a "Blast" (Fun) to drive..!!!.. I love the stance I am a "GASSER GUY" ..LOL..I have been trying to count the front leafs since yesterday...JMO.. To me they look like 1 ton Chevy rear truck springs did you have them made they look like they have been arched 5-6 inches over stock... And for the record how many leafs are up front??? Thanks.!!!.. Very Happy ...

Thanks' Guy ... there are 14 Leafs up front ... there Just stacked ... but I'm not sure that will work ... I am Really worried about awhole lot of Bump steer ... Probably take some out .... there look arched because there's no motor in it ..But Donivan is coming today .. and were going to put the motor in .... so I will have more Pics Tonight .... I have been worried about How it will all line up ... with the motor trans and Transfercase ... Hope we have room for a drive line ..... we have never used an automatic before so with it all bolted togeather as you can see it's LONG !!!!! but we will see ONCE THE MOTOR GETS HERE TODAY !!!!!!!

however,,,,Vanish had to put his tape measure away,,,,,he surely wanted to take measurements to have driveshafts made,,,,,,that C4/Dana 300 set up wont mount up to the 302 engine......

I think the problem is that the engine is set up for a 164 tooth flexplate while the trans is set up for a 157 tooth flexplate,,,,,,now whats that all about,,,,,,,Chevy would never do that,,,,,,,

When you are done you can just load that van on a trailer and we can test it in some snow in my yard.

You still working on this?

I've been collecting parts to convert my 61 5 window pickup to 4x4.
