      nubstatus] Hey I am currently building a 64 notchback and I was wondering where you got the suspension from and is that actually made for a notchback?
      those are most def not made for a notchback. They are revalveble (sp?) And rebuildable penske shocks, you would find them used on super mods, circle track,course cars. What are you looking to do?

      So here I am roughly 10hrs into the chassis.
      front section cut and tunnel structure cut


      Working on the rear section next... and i'll do tunnel bracing after a good portion of the welding is done...

      If you have a spec sheet for your frame, you should post it somewhere. I could see this being a pretty awesome resource for someone wanting to do this.

      Looking forward to see how this works out

      That's because we aren't as poor as Michigan, yet mother nature still $hits on us for like half the year, and we drink more beer than any other state. So there's lots of time to bottle feed ideas and builds.

      After I get the rear end finalized I think that can be arranged. I've gotta get my engine mated to the trans and verify some dimensions before I finish that up. I don't want this copied unless its right.

      Those machines are so versatile I can't imagine what I would do without one now. I've been saving the b2's strictly for this project. I've had some very tempting offers though.

      This weekend is looking good for cleaning out the clutter in the garage. Hope to chip away at a frame table on rainy days then crack down and get the frame together.

      I've never seen a notchback other than in photos. This is so cool. I'm glad you have it and hope you get to drive it for years to come.
