Hey Tom,

That drawing is in the Ref Area under the "Body & Chassis" section, "67 Wheel & Axle Dims". I play around with a CAD system called "Alibre". I did it when I was trying to figure out the largest tire I could fit. I used tape measures & strings & plumb bobs to get the dims as close as I could get.

Great post, and I'll be watching this as I'm doing an LS/Muncie swap in my 67 wagon. Unfortunately minus all of the body work for now. Thanks for the great pictures, info and time you've put in. Awesome!

Thank you for posting and sharing your results, I know a lot of effort and time was involved.

Thanks Roman!

I sometimes forget what's in the 2 Reference Areas I provided! Is that CAD program "Pay to Play"?

TurboCAD and AutoCAD is loaded on this computer, but both have recently gone with a monthly subscription method.

re-made frame pads/motor mounts - lower by half an inch - back to firewall 2" from where first made...installed the inner fenders after much rework on them - cant get new ones...
anyway - getting closer!

Tom,

Alibre is a 3D CAD program you have to buy. Then you can buy yearly "Maintenance" (or not) depending if you want to get program updates/upgrades or not.

painted column and blasted and painted the hood latch bracing/gravel guard/ polished original steering wheel and associated bling...moved my orig. knobs to the auto column. polished and re blacked the grill etc...(should look just as good as the 600 dollar ones I'd guess...)



By chance did you paint the grill filler black? They are usually argent, when I bought my car, the old repaint was red, made a huge difference changing it back to Argent. With that being said, your car is awesome.

I agree with Bill --> That piece looks better in argent silver when the car is assembled.

Just wanted you to see your original photo, under the / between the left headlamps you can see the argent silver, I am a photo hound, anything 67, I have all the pics you posted on this post, to me it just would not look right not being argent, but we all have different tastes. keep the pics coming.

Awesome! I think it was originally a low-gloss finish. I had mine painted (actually, powder-coated) in full-gloss silver and it looks bitchin'! Just a suggestion....

fortunately - I have leftover Sherwin Williams Acry Glo paint from customer stripe in "Aluminum" - I'll just scuff the topside of it and do it to it...it looks like dull aluminum ( Argent) unless I clearcoat it - then it'll pop...prob will

Nope - you gotta make the frame pads for the motor - I made mine 2x - didn't like the gap btwn the engine and the firewall so I scooted it closer and down more for hood clearance. ( it was perfectly fine the way it was - the Marine Corps just made me really really picky!)
all TIG welded out of 4130 - one piece top - bent over end to end - then side ears ( w holes) piece of steel tubing inside for the bolt to go thru. and the bottom plate. Car was a 6 banger so the mounts were in a diff loc then the sm/big block cars - had to improvise. block mounts are SBC and LS plates are from KWHIZZ...(He's good people)
