Well , here is the 67 body, back on the rotisserie again. Flushed the firewall and enlarged the tranny tunnel.......chassis goes to powder coat on Friday.

Mitch, I stupidly didn't do that ,coulda had the chassis built narrowed and all.......Jeff, Yes I think it was a Willie Nelson song, he looks like he could use a resto right about now. ONE, The body will look stock outside except for the Le Mans hood with the hole in it...I was going to put 1972 GTO "fender extractors" in the front fenders, but was talked out of doing that also....Probably a good thing. Original seams will be welded, ground, and smoothed during the body work process. Eric

Good call on no extractors, looks two much like TA stuff and not era correct. Car is one of the best looking as is. Doesn't need much to be fantastic..

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

the lines on the 66/67' are some of the most iconic in the auto world, took chrysler 3 years to steal them for the charger...better get some sticky rubber E, i just bump the pedal and the 245's bark, but you gotta love it...

Lookin good E.

How big of rubber are you going with? Street and/or Drag tires? Did you ever decide on rims?

Inquiring minds want to know.

The body shop is going to trim the rear wheel moldings and wheel wells (good for about 3/4" more clearance)....so far it looks like Continental Extreme Contact DW tires. -- 275/45 ZR-18 for the rear on either 9"or 10" rims...something a little more narrow for the front. I gotta wait till the body is back on the chassis so I can get some real good measurements for backspace/offset, etc...... I will probably go with some Billet Specialties wheels. HAS ANYONE seen the JIM WANGERS RallyeII wheels on his website??? I really like rallye I 's better but it is an idea....I think I should have mini-tubbed for maximum traction but "guys" tell me I'll be OK with stock wheel wells... Eric
