posted some info under my newbie post. But I'll start a thread so can post pics and info as we go along. Car is a 1959 Volvo PV. parts all mostly all there body some dents and surface rust nothing rotted. will be putting it on a 2x3 frame kit from Alston chassis. Debating 4 link or ladder bars. Have ran ladder bars for years so leaning toward that route. Going to tub the back, with 6 inch fender flares, and a 1 peice fiberglass front end. plan on working on chassis and body this year then powertrain. Have the motor and trans already. and will fab up a 9 in Ford for it when im ready for it. Im reposting a few pics of the way it sits today.any comments or suggestions Please lets hear em..:cool:

Those are a pretty nice body style. They make great gassers with a nose up attitude! I've got a friend who's building one presently for a friend of his. It's got a straight axle, and a Mustang 8" rear now, and soon a SBC 350.

Yup, always thought they made a great gasser. There are some out there in the world, I've seen pics of them as gassers. Good to see the project started. Mark L

Those Volvo's have always looked kinda like '40 Ford sedans to me. Pretty Kool!
