I know as a 18 year old, I built a V8 Vega with a 327 engine from a crashed rail. and a boneyard TH350 and a 10 bolt posi from a z28.
Three things were a [email protected]
1) Mounting the custom vette radiator out front
2) Relocating the Heater core inlet and outlets
3) Converting the 10 bolt from a leaf perch to a 4 link.
Funny story on the 4 link. Gave the welder the stock Vega rear and the 10 bolt and told him to transfer the 4 link brackets onto the 10 bolt with the same geometry. Got it done then I fitted it.
Took the car for a test shakedown it had 3 spee s reverse and 1 forward. !!!
He Mounted the brackets upside down!
Luckily they were just tacked, so I had him fix it. I paid for the extra work since I didn't give him explicit instructions.
Nice Guy, Great welder. Lou's Welding in Billerica.
Cars were slow in the 70s no need to build silly stuff now except out of boredom.
But, I would like maybe a 289 Ford powered RWD 2 door Suzuki Sidekick. That would be the B's!
