I picked up a used set of tires and 15" wheels from a local for $100. The tires have good tread so I'll be using them for the rest of this season untill I can afford a new set of slicks. The camera skews pictures a little so the last one is a height comparison.
Mickey doesn't really make indy profile anymore I think he calls them sportsmans now. But basically a road racing tire.
Well my fuel cell showed up this afternoon so I did some measuring and started cutting out the floor to make room for it. Don't mind the fast food cup, I stop there to get water because its right next door.
And heres the cell its self. Two feeds from the 2" sump, one return and one vent valve.
I'm starting this somewhat into the project... so bear with me.
The car came as a roller no interior no engine, nothing. It was spray painted red... Thus far, it has a 350 with a mild cam, I have the rotating assembly for the 383 thats going in this winter.
Specs so far:
SBC 350 3970010 4 bolt from a Chevelle. Cam, torker 1 intake, holley generic 600 single pump vac seconds, MSD 6-AL box, HEI dizzy.
Th-350 full manual valve body with 2600 stall.
4.11 Posi in 7 5/8 10 bolt.
Heres a few crappy cell phone pictures, more to come!
