Since I've been asking so many questions, decided to start a build thread.
The day I brought the car home, it drove on the trailer and off. Took my wife for a short ride. Problem was, The car smoke so bad, you could get lost in it. Car came to me, 235 with a 3 speed. Had another car in the shop, so it went to the pole ban for a while. In October, it got brought in to the shop.

I found a 1957 rear end and had it gone through. 3.55 gears. After pulling old rear and springs I sand the underside and put on some under coating. Added posie springs, and then the rear end. But for got to get the pics of it.

Put tires back on and rolled it outside. Had a Steam cleaner come out. Unfortunately, his heater broke and he could only power wash. Came out ok, not what I had hope for though. It was really caked on
