Lightbulb 1933 dodge 4dr to 2dr update

first of all, l thank all of the people on here for there ideas when l asked how to proceed with this build. many good ideas came at me and l have decided to cut 16 inches out and make a two door sedan and put in a roll cage and front engine cage and make a old sckool looking circle track style jalopy like my dad raced in the 60's[ddev


Named it ''PROJECT; CHEAPSHOT, as l am using every thing l already have
sitting around the house and shop to keep cost as low as possable.
l hope to have to buy very little for this dodge build.

l went out yesterday and worked on the doors. pretty nice day around the northwest, this afternoon was almost 55 degrees, good workin' when it ain't raining. NO RAIN TODAY YAAAA. .
got the back doors off and the front ones to open. that was a pain in the neck trying to get the front's open. l don't think they been opened in 20 yrs.
had to pry the door latches back with a long sharp crow bar while pushing on the inside of the door. the hinges and door latches l put on ton of spray lube on so l would not destroy them. CREEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAKYYYYYYY hinges, but they opened. found the rubber door stoppers were still in place and lots of broken glass as l was cleaning out the front door/window jams.
the door jams are not to bad. l figured they'ed be totally rotted out, however they are quite usable.

l have a chassis that was custom built for a 29 roadster and since my health is not going to allow me to drive a open air car l am putting the chassis under the dodge.

the chassis is a shell valley set up. it has a 4 link 9'' rearend with a panhard bar, I F S with tubealar A arms and rack and pinion steering .l will be using QA1 aluminum adjustable coil over shocks on all 4 corners.

power will be a 325hp 327 sbc and a 700R4 because l have several chevy parts left over from my racing days and l figured ''use 'em if ya got 'em''. it'll save me a ton of $$$$ doing it this way.

tires and wheels are 15 '' BF goodrich T/A radials 12.5 inches wide in back and 8 inches wide in front with Torker ll 5 spoke wheels.

l have heater out of a 50 dodge truck that looks like a old 60's style house heater, ya know, those little square things with the big front grill on 'em.

will post more pics as the build gets in hi gear next month. plans are to have it running and drivable by summer and painted in old race track sponsers and number 7 on the doors[dads last car was that ##] by the fall 2010 and totallly done by 2011

again thanks for the input,

later

I love those 327's. Had one in my old 56 Chev, good choice in my book!
