    The 9" is 58" at the drums, which is just about perfect for the car, with stock wheel tubs and radiused quarters, and 7" wheels with tall not too wide tires. Stock spring location (although the whole floor where the springs attach will be moved forward 9")

        I'm considering these (the 8.20 blackwall version). Expensive. Probably not very sticky. Should be hilarious to watch it run...I hope to do some of those quarter track burnouts...

          Jim - I know your quest to keep it period correct - but what's the argument against a traditional bias ply slick for the track?

            Wrinkle walls weren't around in 1966.

            And with the altered wheelbase, I shouldn't need them

              Hey Squirrel , have you checked out Steve Magnante's book " How to build Altered Wheelbase Cars "? . It's loaded with info . He also has a how to DVD out , not that you don't know what you're doing . It is quite apparent that you do . I'm loving this build .

                Thanks!

                I borrowed the book a couple months ago, my friend in Bisbee who I got some parts from had it. Lots of good info there, but also I've found a lot of things about how he built the Shaker that aren't what I want to do....especially when trying to build a car that's competitive for Drag Week.

                  Gratuitous street freak shot. I pulled the rear out of the Chevy II, and set the Ford rear under the leafs, since it was easier than putting it where it belongs...and I need to make U bolt plates too....and took some pics. Fut stuff. the new rear is almost ready to go into the Suburban, I need to get some brake parts for it.

                      The cart *almost* works...but the cross rails need to be lower, so you can swing the thing around, and it needs a clamp to keep it from rolling. Then it would be awesome

                      I bought some parts from a guy several years ago, he gave me the cart

                        Which Suburban? I'm having a tough time keeping up.

                        Single Layer Fiberglass makes me think of the 50's Eames plastic chairs.

                        Oooh, those look light!
