    I've often had to clearance the kingpin area on Speedway arms when I used them for various builds. Or at least build spacer bushings to move them away from the kingpins for clearance. I was...

    Looks like it might be made from angle iron as I think I see a 90 degree flat through the holes? That would make it slightly stronger, but still too thin. Especially with the length of that arm!

    I think the only way you'd ever find any '64 with a 12 bolt would be if it was a factory race car. I've never heard of or seen a '64 year car with a 12 bolt, even in the factory high performance...

    On a 350 Chevy with the 400 crank figure it's maybe another 3-4 c.i., so a 409 c.i. with the crankshaft.

    Yeah, I wasn't as worried about the rear fenders since they had been skim coated to true them up already. So no bare metal on them anyway. Lots of finish bodywork to do ahead, but at least I can...

    But are the pistons .040" over? If not you'll be buying something that you can't use. If it was a 406 then they're only .030" over.

    I only put on 2 coats Mario. I still have close to a half gallon, and will likely use it after I finish the body work and I'm getting it ready for paint. I think you mentioned I could use this same...

    Me either. Lots of hours and dollars to build a car for what I call shock factor. It may indeed run and drive, but the question is how long and how far? Reminds me of a local guy here who showed up...

    Pure Hell and Pure Heaven are both still around and still racing! I watched them both make exhibition runs at Eagle Field a few years back. They run nostalgia events now.

    Who would let a car be impounded for running out of gas? Can't imagine the tow fee was maybe $250 at most?
    But that is a huge bargain, and close enough to you that you should buy it Lash!

    As I said previously, I'd dispute it with my credit card company. I wouldn't take anything less than all my money back. That's total crap.
