Cool car! Yep, its got a V8, and a few other goodies for take off!! I think I have too many questions to ask so I will limit myself to 2 only. What type of buckets did you use and what did you use for your disc brakes?? Cool car!

Ok the seats are Bride seats and we got them of kijiji because a guy bought them for his gtr and the brackets were wrong, i guess he was not a metal fab guy. we made our own and had cool seats new at half price.

For the Disc brakes, We used
1981 C3 corvette rotors that we drilled for cool factor in the voids between vents
1.We cut the spindle boss down to allow the mounting of our caliper brackets and chevy C10 calipers 81 Chevy 2wd truck or van.
2.we also tapped the spindle boss hole to 3/4nf instead of 11/16 for a bolt that was readily available, thread pitch was the same so easy to do.
3.For brackets, we used a chevy 4x4 front caliper bracket tracing to make a drawing of our bracket, we subtracted 1/8 inch to allow for difference between diameter on the truck vs corvette rotors.
once we had the template built that would clear our spindle and also a template for the rear we just cut them out of 3/8 plate steel with the plasma and drilled tapped the holes and did a little grinding relief to allow caliper mounting
4. We used chevy truck calipers
5.and front chevy corvette brake lines front and back and welded a little tab on the rear dif with the same hole as holds in place the front hard brake line fitting to soft brake line.
6.For an ebrake we used a performance world mechanical hydraulic line lock and spun that directly to the performance world adjustable proportioning valve and mounted under the dash where the old e brake release handle used to be.
7.all new hard lines
When we built the rear diff which is a 12 bolt with 4:56 gears and a modified eaton posi, we built large bearing ford 9" bearing retainers on our lathe.. we would have bought them, but we built them one saturday afternoon out of some 4" bar stock from and old hydraulic ram we had in the metal bin. We welded those on using a jig of 1 1/4 round bar and aluminum bushings we spun up. Had to get custom axles cause we narrowed the diff a total of 1" while we were at it so that our new rims would be centered right in the wheel well. we also full welded the tubes, heat shrink straightened a slight bend in one tube which is a cool video we made and welded the rear brake brackets to the tube right behind the welds for the axle tube ends.

I have pics of the stuff we did for making our set up and even some video it ended up being way cheaper than buying a brake conversion kit or axle tube ends, but my dad and uncle have all the fabricating tools and skills we need to build just about anything so we just do it ourselves for the fun of it. Plus all the parts are easy to find at any auto parts store which is a plus.

Awesome build! Nice to see there are still ambitious people in the hobby willing to do this. And to A CP no less.

Good rescue.

Thanks. 2 of the cars were going to be crushed right away, and we just got there in time to at lease see their good parts saved... it was sad we missed one 2 door hard top buckets and console car that they had already stacked so many cars on that it was unsavable, even the interior parts were broken.

Ever since watching PASS TIME all the time as a kid I wanted a cool car that can also pull the front wheels at the track. I know that takes the right conditions and traction and lots of power and gears and a high stall. So thats what we were going for...Have to wait till next spring to start working on it.
My dad says he cant ever remember seeing a 65 or 66 fullsize pontiac drag car pulling the front wheels.
That is what we want to do. So that would be pretty cool!
