Cookiemonster and Ryan, I will be changing that wheels over im waiting to find a set of 23x10.50x12 rims. The tires will hang out of the fenders but will look super cool as well. Thanks for the comments guys.


I wanted to stay original, but while I was building the guys gave me advice to look for these kind of wheels.... "(old) Dodge dart wheels - small bolt pattern"

Apparently the dart went to a larger bolt pattern at some time. But there's still a whole bunch of guys who have the older ones at shows or on the dragstrip, so there's wheels to be had out there.

Thanks Chris, I hear you it hasnt been the cheapest build either but im thinking the way that it looks it was all worth it. Im the same way, I have a bunch of side projects. I cut back and moved a bunch of projects to make room for more.

The sandblasted pulley is killer.
Now, I'd like to do that to mine, but I'd have to pull the entire grill off to do it.

That is coming along great!! Keep up the stellar work!!! You and Dean are really making me wish I had bought the Panzers when I had the chance. I guess I'll have to settle with drooling over the ones you guy's own :p

It's odd to see your steering shaft so straight. My t70 has one that kind of goes along under the hood with a couple bends to get down to the gear portion on the rack?

This guy does do fantastic work. Steering is one place where our projects would take very different paths. Since my steering is out of an 1107 it's very different than a t70 or T75 or 758. Even though it looks like a t70, the steering is one of the things I didn't use. But I know what you mean by the kinked shaft. That was needed for clearance, so if you come up with a way to use a straight shaft, then you may want to do that.
